One more time, with feeling!

The Chone Burr sweater is back on track, and rolling along smoothly this time.

(I frogged the first attempt, after screwing up some “at the same time” instructions in the pattern.)

I think my row gauge is slightly off from the pattern specs, but I should be able to compensate for that without too much trouble.

It doesn’t look like much yet, but I’m really excited about the project, and I’m really, really enjoying the yarn. It’s like getting to hang out with and pet my little black sheep on the couch, at work..anywhere I want to take him 🙂

He’s got a heck of a fleece on him this year, too. There is a tiny little bugger under all that wool!

I was hoping to do some more shearing this weekend, but the weather hasn’t cooperated. It’s gone back into cold and stormy mode- a step back, despite having just “sprung forward” for daylight savings time.

But I’m getting a garden plan together- got my potatoes (Russian Banana and Rose Finn) and seeds for the other garden staples from the farm store this weekend. I know it’s early, but it always seems like things start moving so fast this time of year!

      Thanks Donna- I’m excited to see how this one will turn out. I’ve had pretty good luck with Brooklyn Tweed patterns in the past!
