I had forgotten about this sweater I had started last summer until I saw the most gorgeous rolags in the world on this blog and remembered that I could do that. Mine are not so pretty but they are spinable and I have the proof in this horrid, hot mess of a pullover.

At the end of last year's Tour de Fleece, I had a basket of leftover Corridale and some hand carders so I thought "why not?". It was 110 degrees in the shade so having a lap full of wool seemed the thing to do. Not. As you can see, I gave up on it.

Although my fashion sense is questionable here, I did learn that even the ugliest of wonkily spun yarn can make some very nice plain stockinette. Who knew? As for the pullover, I am going to finish it. Now. It makes more sense to be working on this in January than in August.


  1. Thank you so much for the lovely compliment on my rolags!!! Now if I can just spin them into something fine enough to make a lace shawl I'll be a happy camper! :-)

  2. Personally - I love that sweater. Pair it with a black skirt, black tights, and nice pair of black boots! Perfect!

  3. YOu switch gears so quickly! Im insprired. I cannot wait to see the sweater finish

  4. I love it. The colors are great. Those blues and lavenders in there make it for me.
