Oh it looks so lovely. This fall, I’m hoping to learn spinning. 🙂
I definitely think you’ll enjoy it! Pics when you do.
What a perfect skein of yarn! Olga and you make a great team!!
I guess the threat of putting her out on the street worked. 😀
It’s either that, or she told me bout myself … either way, we’re definitely not fighting anymore.
Love it! So inspiring – I really want to get into spinning! Love the color! And I was so pleased to work with Peruvian wool recently!
I really think you’d love it! Let me know if you decide to try.
Look at you spinning on your wheel 🙂
I know right! It’s about time!
It looks amazing, congratulations!
Thanks so much Hannah! After the start I really enjoyed this spin. 🙂
Oh Nicky, it’s pink! Swoon.I love it.
I didn’t realise you were another pinkster like Andi. LOLOLOL! Thanks for the love!
I have to say, I don’t know if I will ever add spinning to my list (too. many. sweaters. to. make.) but kudos to you!
That’s unless you decide one day to do a sheep to sweater project. Buy the fiber, spin it then knit your own sweater. 😉
Thanks for the love!!!
woot woot!! Great job!!!!!!! Such a beautiful skein of yarn in your…new favorite color pink! hahaha 🙂 I can’t wait to see the next spin!!!!!
You got jokes huh?!!! LOLOLOL! Would you believe it if I told you that I tried this fiber as practice? LOLOLOL!
Wooooohooooo!!!! And it is gorgeous!!!! ^_^
*cheesing* Thanks so much friend. 😀
