Yowza! Another great

Yowza! Another great spindling post. That light brown ought to make some nice knitting. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I have rather hammy hands

I have rather hammy hands too and it doesn't really stop me from spinning fine, laceweight yarns. In fact I'm hand-spindling some now (not alpaca, though)...Andy...always love how you teach with your blog posts and pictures...thanks.
