Fleece artist merino sliver

I started this on a drop spindle, which accounts for one end of it being a bit slubby.  85 yards of merino sliver.  It will probably become socks for the bug.

I didn’t particularly like the color while I was spinning it, but it has turned out to be a very nice subtle color.  Will the color the resulting yarn becomes ever stop surprising me?  Or is that just half the fun?

John’s hat

So, my cousin John asked my grandmother for a hat. That was 4 yrs ago. He hasn’t gotten the hat, my grandmothers hands hurt when she knits. So when I saw him at the wedding, he asked me to make him a hat. I thought that would be a fun and easy project and today I finished.

I used Noro Kureyon, and I just love the way it turned out. I had one of my faculty model it for me. Now he wants one too.
