I grabbed a favorite sweatshirt of wee's and measured the circumference on it to be about 28 inches. So I worked up a gauge swatch, cast on 112 sts to some size 7 addis and have had trouble putting this thing down ever since.
I started with the Marr Haven wool at the border and then just started picking up different colors as I went along.
I ordered some Beaverslide Dry Goods yarn in greens, blues and a deep bison brown for a completely different project but they worked their way into the tomten very quickly. A strip of a leftover handspun single left on the bobbin, a few rows of various tweeds and did I mention I cannot put this thing down.
I cannot say enough good things about Beaverslide Dry Goods yarns, so incredibly soft and such crunchy, granola, earthy colors that just melt together like a landscape when blended.
MMmmm and for the i-cord trim. I spun up this wee skein of toadstool handspun from this South African fine roving, my first time spinning this stuff and it is so great to work with, very soft, yet easy to draw with a nice, long staple length.
and the wee skein...
