that's looking really nice! :heart: i just love the smoothness of handspun. i have never seen any mass produced yarn (and i've seen a-plenty) that is that pleasing to the senses. i think i'm going to have to stop looking at these threads cold turkey until i can actually try it myself! :pout:

oh pretty :) I think predrafting is really important to make sure you get all the little snurggles out of the roving and to get it to the thickness you prefer to work with; even if it is pencil roving.

well, when it comes to all things knitting, anyway! :chair:
