Baby It’s Cold Outside!

The weather has turned on us, and its now snowing and blowing all over the place.

But inside, by the glow of the pellet stove, the spinning of Chone’s last fleece continues

Two more bobbins, fresh from Sigrid the Norwegian slanty girl

And plied on Moto the e-spinner

Brings the yardage total to 916.

I’ve got about 6 ounces left to go, which is about 7 more hours of spinning time.

I’m really loving this yarn. I find it hard to photograph because of it’s dark color, but it feels amazing.
Light and lofty, with just a touch of lanolin left in.
Will need to find just the right pattern for it.

In other news, I’m making good progress on the multicolor vest, and working on writing up the vest pattern to share with folks.
I’m not planning on repeating my “afterthought saddle shoulders” on this one, so am trying to sort out what is the best way to work the shoulder and neckline shaping so that it sets up the shawl collar the same way the first one came out. Getting close to an answer, but won’t know for sure until I try it out on the current version.

About 15 inches in now, and into the violet part of the color spectrum!
