oooo really?!

I'd like something pretty and hand made ;) any colour, any weight and probably about 50-100g.

I have no idea what I want to do with it, I just know I want to work with some hand made yarn and it will talk to me and tell me what to do with it!! <3

What a lovely request ... you will love working with home spun ... I would make the offer but I have used a lot of mine to knit a pair of manic slippers ... they are manic as I never make enough to do more than a very small project so I knitted all the colours together .... :lol:
