Put away the Carlito Cardigan for a while. After attempting the back three times, I can't get the stitching to come together where it needs to on the lower back. Ah well, I will conquer it eventually.

I just wanted to share some of my spinning. It is Suri alpaca and it is like a dream. I almost forgot how to spin, but that is ridiculous, there is muscle memory and that will come back as soon as you spend some time spinning.
