I think I’ve got all the yarn I’ll need to complete the “shades of gray sweater”
(taken on location while I was waiting for a bus yesterday)
and I figure I’m about 1/3 complete, knitting-wise.
So my spinning focus has shifted to Huey.
I’ve got about 2/3 of his fleece washed up now, and I’ve started swatching around….
(same bus stop- the light was really great)
It’s the most beautiful ginger-y color, and I really like it as a lofty, softly spun three ply.
So soft. So silky. And just a hint of pearly luster.
Oh- and I forgot to mention last week that the Experimental Sweater finally fulfilled it’s destiny-
I got talked into entering it in the Arts and Crafts show at work:
And all because that silly scarf aspired to be a more than an accessory
Time to go play with my fleece.
Tons of inspiration in this post!
Thanks Michelle- a new fleece always gets my creative juices flowing….
It looks like Huey is destined to become cabled! I love your experimental sweater- you better win.
Yep. He’s on his way to being something vaguely aran….should be fun.
The show wasn’t judged,, but I got lots of nice feedback from people at work!
