  1. You inspired me, so now I am waiting for my Woolee Winder :D Thank you for a great videocast, I love it. Merry Christmas!

  2. First, I love your dog. Even thought, I have only ever knit scarves (and one sock.) You are really inspiring and I love your podcast.

  3. Yay! I'm so glad you like the fiber, can't wait to see it all spun up.
