I so want to strangle Pluckyfluff. With her own yarn. Except I suspect it wouldn't do a very good job as a noose. I guess I'll just have to stuff it in her mouth and up her nose until she suffocates on the nasty stuff.

My buddy Joe was admiring some of my handspun and my knitting at the weekend and said "I don't mean this as an insult, but some of your stuff is so even it could have been done by a machine." I knew what he meant and pointed out that my spinning is mostly done by a machine (a spinning wheel)!

Our ancestors produced yarns as good as any made by modern machinery -- you can see that in the few extant pieces in museums. To produce cr*p and call it "handspun" is to do them and us a huge disservice. People make things much better than machines do. Machines just do it quicker and cheaper.

*g* I agree - I'll even hold her down for you, and dispose of the...evidence. *g*
