What's better than a banana?
Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, Color CW-620 "Banana", that's what!
Yesterday's mail brought a box from Yarn Elf's Workshop which included these six skeins of Cotton Fleece. Thank you, Yarn Elf! Such a wonderful Spring color! The plan is that it will be transformed into "Miss Scarlett", a top which was originally knit in scarlet handspun BFL, but not here! Miss Scarlett has wonderfully pouffy sleeve, but I plan on knitting them about 1/3 less pouffy. (After the all-consuming contest entry!)
The violets in the picture are volunteer. Violets grow as weeds around here, a highly propigating native species. When I was little we had a white one every year, but it hasn't re-emerged for many years, I was told. I keep looking for another one!
