TdF: Sheep to Shawl
That Jacob fleece I bought at this year's MD S&W Fest was meant to be socks. I've been carding and spinning it like crazy all through this year's Tour.
It's too soft and squishy for feet (yay!) so it is becoming a simple garter stitch shawl instead. I never was a big fan of garter stitch. I think it looks a bit sloppy (or at least mine does). It works with my rather wonky, crazy colored handspun, though. I looked at pattern after pattern trying to decide what this yarn wanted to become. It was pretty clear that it wanted to be something simple and I'm glad. Very glad because I am tired. Very tired.
