Craft of Bust!!! - 2/19

I just love this shepherdess's fleece and have never been disappointed by a purchase from her:) Unfortunately for me though, I have a much more of this fleece to spin if I intend to knit a sweater from it this year..haha

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
