Baa Baa Black Sheep - Year of Projects Week 20
My year of projects update is pretty small this week.
I have added six lace repeats to my wayside sweater and I am ready to turn the heel on one of my charity knit socks.
But, the exciting thing is on Friday I received....
Baa Baa Black sheep
Have you any wool.
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.
Yup, three bags, of freshly shorn, unwashed and gloriously smelly Babydoll sheep fleece.
I have already decided that I will spin it in order to make a Cowichan sweater/jacket as I have a white fleece that needs to be spun too.
I am so excited to take on this sheep to sweater project.
Wish me luck.
Meanwhile....back to my sideways sweater. I have just started ball six and hope to be on the sleeves by next week's update.
Also a dear friend sent me this knitting gif.
A gift of a gif!
