This one time.... at spinning class.... I bought a fleece.

So now, bit by bit, picking out grass seed after grass seed, the fleece is turning from this...


into this...


which in turn, gets plied together, washed and finally appears as this.

I have 5 skeins completed so far. Each skein is about 80-90g. Eyeballing the weight, it looks to be about an 8ply/DK - perhaps a smidge heavier in parts. I'm thinking cardigan - I've gone cardigan mad on Ravelry and have been favouriting nearly every cardigan pattern I come across. I think it's the adjustability and the possibility of slight temperature regulation that attracts me to cardigans rather than jumpers.

Spring is definitely here now. Yesterday I sat out in the back yard to read a bit more of Breaking Dawn (this one is taking much longer to get through than the first three books - the story is interesting, but it seems to be dragging) and although it was quite windy, the air had that warmth to it which feels soft on your skin.
