It's like Personality Doppelganger

Every single time I read this blog, I think, "holy crap! that is so me and St. John." I have to allow that her cockamamie schemes have slightly more "cock" in them, but STILL. Well, and I guess it is different that every once in awhile, St. John will actually allow that some of my ideas are actually good and they WORK (which is to him is way more important since he is an engineer and they mostly care about how to make things work).

I wish she was my neighbor.

Who missed St. John?


This sweater is not quite complete, but doesn't it look nice on him? I still have to put in the zipper and block, but it's almost done!

I got the lamb fleece from here: Sweetgrass Farms

The shepherdess is a super fantastic lady I met at the Michigan Fibre Fest a few years ago when I bought my very first fleece. I liked it so much, I emailed her last year and asked her to pick out two lamb fleeces, and a yearling ewe. Her fleeces are uncoated, and absolutely wonderful to work with. If you ever want a jacob fleece to spin, I can't recommend her highly enough.

Anywho, it's been washed, carded, blended to try to get the color variation as even as possible while still maintaining my normal level of lazy. (that means no more than four times through the carder). Then it was spun into a sport weight three ply. The pattern is a plain old seamless raglan (using EZ's seamless method).

The second picture makes him look totally drunk. I love it. He's still cute though.


I know I'm boring today, but still I thought some of you might be missing The Boss. Trying to get more regular on blogging again. Promise I'll make more of an effort.
