I’ve been chatting back and forth with Kimberly for about a year now. She is a wonderful friend and has become very near and dear to my heart. She is very supportive in whatever whim hits me on any given day. I think if I had a cheering squad in my fibre work, she would certainly be head cheerleader!
Kimberly had asked me to spin her some yarn last year. I told her that I’m still learning, that I really don’t know if I’m ready to sell it. I told her that if she bought the roving, I would spin it for her at no charge. Just as long as she gave me some feedback. I was so excited when she took me up on my offer. I get so excited to spin yarn, but to spin it for somebody else? And to see what they will do with what I have created? What an honour!
I was sitting in a restaurant with my guys, enjoying my birthday dinner. I received a picture message that just sent me into tears of joy:
After that, she had requested some more yarn. Of course I was happy to oblige. I’m going to share some photos of the spinning process right to the finished product.

And what did she do with this?
She made a beautiful cowl!
