    So nice to see as a not (yet?) spinner how that attractive fibers turn out!

    Emily, you’ve given me itchy fingers – I’ve yet to knit a lot with my own hand spun… never a whole jumper worth of fibre. I might just have to spin some of my hand dyed wool top and make my own Flax Sweater…

    Thank you so much for all of the lovely photos and your spinning story! I’m learning to drop spin. Such cushy, lovely fiber. I’m a knitter too, and any way I can get my hands on fiber makes me very happy!
