Huey!

I think I’ve got all the yarn I’ll need to complete the “shades of gray sweater”

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….

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.

Mmmmm.

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

Ok.

Time to go play with my fleece.

    It looks like Huey is destined to become cabled! I love your experimental sweater- you better win.
