Workin’ Hard or Hardly Workin’

P1030532

Slowly making a few more critters, including sock monkeys (love them). I suppose I will be waiting until next Spring to buy more Merino wool, sheep-shearing season. I did buy a bit of Polwarth, and it’s really wonderful, a very fine micron, 22 maybe or less, and a bit whiter than most of my wool. Not Snow White! I think the very white white wool is bleached, but I do need to buy some for certain projects. A very small amount has lasted me a good 6 months.

The doggy I’ve been working on, shown in the picture, is reminiscent of a toy dog I had as a child. I’m making him as close as my memory lets me.
