Mooses :)

I have a swift and no ball winder. Because I can afford a ball winder, I just haven't bought one. lol

what the heck is angelina? I would imagine that if you don't like it, I probably wont either.

it's scratchy glitter strips, sorta like easter grass.... a lot of people have been spinning in in their yarn.
