  1. Hi Carin,
    wow, the Twist & Shout looks darker than I've expected. There were so many long white parts in it, but I like how it looks spun up! Oh, and the February Lady Sweater looks gorgeous on you - great color and fit, very beautiful!

    Greetings from Germany,

  2. Eva, there's still plenty of white bits in it. Because of how the Woolee Winder puts the yarn on the bobbin, you only see what's been spun at the very end...which just happened to be a darker part.

  3. Okay - I have to admit that I am not a fan of the February Lady Sweater. I might just be a hater because I'm not the right build for it, but there you have it. However I must say that yours is delightful! I love the color and the length. I may have to revise my opinion of FLS in general. Hmm.

    Another great episode. Thanks!

  4. Hi! Just found your vodcast. The February Lady Sweater looks really good on you (great choice of color) but doesn't it bother you that you can't button it down all the way? I'm very curious as to how that spun fiber will look when it's knit.

  5. Hi Carin, The February Lady Sweater looks great, don't know if I can wait until Feb to make mine. (Malabrigo worsted, Violetas colorway)
    Seeing your finished objects makes me add to my queue though. I'm thinking what yarn I want to use for the Chevron Scarf, and I've atarted a pair of Opal socks. Bad influence you are!
    Keep up the good work, love the podcast!
