OH! The yumminess of the Cormo/Cross! This yarn was from a prize-winning fleece at the first Michigan Fiber Fest that I went to. The natural color of chocolatey brown made me want to see the sheep (AUTHOR! Author!). The soft hand and squooshiness of the yarn makes it a real pleasure to knit. (FLY BABY! Fly!)

I am now as far as the upper waist area in the sweater. Since I’m not sure if I have enough yarn to go the distance, I decided to add the buttonband later just in case I have to use a different yarn to get me through (black ribbon?)

Fingers are very crossed though, that my *experiment* in weighing will prevail and get me to the finish line. (GO YARN! Go!)

This project is the result of a Double-Dog Dare with DeannaC in the Chic Knits group on the Rav. First I dared her to make her collar longer (she ended up making an 8″ ribbed version — gorgeous!) than I got dared to make another whole sweater!!! Thanks Deanna! I needed a nudge to get going :)

That yarn was smiling at me in the stash for way too long now…
