      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 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!!!
