Over 400 yds of lace weight Shetland beauty spun from a fleece hand painted by Widdershin Woolworks. Dear Ani (the genius behind Widdershin) nearly met her death after a visit to Israel - no it wasn't terrorism, it was a mosquito who gave her a West Nile like virus. The handspinning world was on tenterhooks and we didn't even know it! She is on the mend now, thank the spinning goddesses!
Anyway, I don't care what anyone says, Shetland sheep are very cute, their wool spins up like nobody's business and the resulting yarn has a sturdy integrity that is unmatched, except perhaps by Icelandic wool. Nah, I think Shetland is best.
As Finn once said in response to my telling him that I thought I liked spinning *better* than knitting:
Oh no you dittn't. (add your own sweeping, snapping gesture).
