Bang Out a Sweater is a great idea and I joined right in but this sweater has been years in the making.
I began spinning the yarn I'm using in November 2014. It is a lovely soft Romedale spun into a squishy 3 ply aran wt.
The dark blue brown blend was carded and spun last summer. Not for this project specially, but with the idea of using it in a sweater as a contrasting color.
The Ocean Shetland blend was carded years ago when most of two pounds was spun as another 3 ply yarn that I apparently have stored in a very much too safe a place. I know it exists, I have pictures. Lucky for me, I had a batt or two left in an unsecured location and was able to spin, ply and wash it over the weekend.
Knitting began this afternoon.
It's going to be fun!
