Thank the Sheep

This weekend was gloriously warm and sunny.
Perfect for washing fleece!

Here are Felix and Griff batches drying on the picnic table.

They looked so gorgeous sitting there that I just had to take a minute to thanks the sheeps that make this all possible.

So I went out to visit the guys and spend a little time telling them how cool they are.

And I took them some of their favorite treats- salmonberry branches.

What a cool bunch of guys.

Also wanted to provide an update on the Monkey Sweater.

Here’s the thing. It was done. Off the needles.

And I liked it.
Really.

But I didn’t love it. And it was my fault.
I made it too large.

I can wear it (and have), and the shoulders fit fine, and the sleeves are the right length and everything.

But somehow the body is too big. Baggy.
And when I wear it, I think it looks kinda schlumpy.

And I don’t want that for the Monkey Sweater.
I want to love the Monkey Sweater.

I’ve been thinking about it alot.
And I tried it on again yesterday and came up with a plan.

I’m taking it in.
All the way up each side and through the underarm.

According to my not-so-scientific calculations, that should bring it back to Perfect Sweater size.

I intend to operate tomorrow.

Wish me luck.

    Good luck with the operation. But it is the right move. If you do not love it, fix it!

    You never cease to amaze me! Can’t wait to hear/see how the tailoring went. I’m curious what you’re going to do when you get to the underarm.
