I'm jealous. My yarn still looks like a sheep got a fur ball and coughed it up :rofl:

You are amazing! I remember meeting you last fall and loving your sweater that you had *designed yourself* and THEN I learned that you really hadn't been knitting for very long at all, or at least it seemed that way. You have an incredible natural talent I think. So, here you are spinning your own yarn and knitting up delicious things with it. WOW!!
