Weekending
It's raining

Stopover and KAL

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!

COOL. Can't wait to see you bang it out.

How perfectly beautiful! I'm going to enjoy watching this grow.

Your spinning is so even! Jealous,

I looks great! I was going to join in but I couldn't find enough of the yarn I wanted for my size at Halcyon. Now you have me thinking that maybe I have some in my hand spun stash? I love how those colors look together. I'm looking forward to watching it grow.

Oooh, a handspun Stopover! Love, love your colors!
