Carolyn, my beloved Ya-Ya also spins & dyes her own yarn. She's very talented, and has even won First Place in the Fall Fiber Festival of Virginia 2005.
Carolyn has even been known to stop her car and pull over to the side of the road to collect cotton in laundry bags to spin into yarn. She spun it up and knit a swatch for us Ya-Yas to drool over. It's the softest yarn I've ever held in my hands. Softer than angora and cashmere! I kid you not, folks.
I'm going to send her over to this forum, please give her a warm welcome. She's the sweetest, kindest lady you'll ever meet.
