I plied some of Brother. Not what I was envisioning. I am going to give carding another try, pick more neps and coils and tvm out. Spin it finer. I am learning how to sample. Good thing that fleece is really big. The skein I made today *sorry, no pix*, will be suitable for some moccasin socks by Zimmerman. Not, repeat, not sweater yarn. yet.

Some people have described me as stubborn. They would be correct. The phrases "I can't" or "you can't" only make me try harder. I am stubborn in friendships and with family, and with something I am interested in. Once I am engaged, it takes a lot to back off. This is a great quality, but it has it's down points.

That's some beautiful fleece. I can't wait to see it all spun up. And stubborn isn't always a bad thing. I think that's what's enabled me to try as much as I have. I don't know if it's hard or not until I try it myself! :)

Hey pal! You've got a package on its way to you! Email when you get it and I'll give you the spinnerly details (I wrote up a little card about the yarn, but I just found that card on my coffee table! OOPS!).

Be well, and keep on cardin'!
