Do any of you know Aaron Lewis?

I ran across this brilliant site the other day while cruising the 'net. I suppose nobody remembers now, but my first question when I joined MWK was about ganseys, and they still fascinate me.

Boku Yarn from Plymouth

I'm close to finishing a shawl with the "Noro knock off" Boku Plymouth yarn. I'm worried I've made a mistake. It's very pretty, but it's the scratches thing I've ever felt.

Llama fiber

I may be getting some llama fiber. 10 or so fleeces from some one I know.

What would I do with all of these? Get them processed and sell them on Etsy??? Or... Suggestions???

Does Anyone Do Modular Knitting?

Seems easy.

Does anyone else use knit picks

I've been ordering materials from lately. I was wondering what some of you other guys thought about their products???
