The Sweater Project

No, I am not knitting a sweater. I have only spun enough yarn to darn a few socks at this point. Felted hats are in my future, but for Kevin, who worked at Marshall's long ago, the project in question started with an adventure in closet cleaning. The result is as good as an episode of Mystery Science Theater, I think. Enjoy...

I thought only Dr. Huxtable was allowed to wear sweaters like that.

You know I think there's a reference to Bill Cosby with one of those sweaters...

That is hysterical. I regretfully must admit to owning some particulary hideous designs that I donated when I moved across country. Too bad, I could have added you badsweaterguys collection. lol.

On another note, what kind of yarn are you spinning? We used to have angoras and have about 5 hefty bags of angora hair sealed up and stored in the garage. My wife swears that one day she will take out her spinning wheel...Too bad the spinning wheel and loom take up all of my workshop space in the garage. :-(

I'm just spinning plain old sheep's wool. It's about all I can handle. Angora seems like it would be really slippery!

It's not bad at all...but then what do I know I just watch. :-) When she is in the flow of spinning she can make the yarn very quickly. Then the messy part of dying starts. We had albinos and a brown/purple bunny for a long time. Very cool colours, but then she dyes them!?!
