Forest Petunia

I have some FOs to show you, including my Spring Folly project (Unmentionables) and a spring sweater I finished weeks ago but never got around to blogging. I'm almost done with my GGSSC; I just need to do the border. It's more than seven feet square now, and it's a beast! But my oh-so-generous children shared the plague with me, so I'm not up for live modeling today. Or even getting off the sofa. But I did do this:

About 170 grams and 570 yards of dk-ish weight handspun 2-ply. One ply is spun from my Petunia Roving. The other is some merino roving from handpaintedyarn.com that I spun quite a while ago. I don't know the name of the colorway, but it's a combo of dark green, burgundy, and blue. This is the third time I've attempted to find another colorway to ply it with, and I think I've finally found one I'm happy with!

I think this is destined to by my first Clapotis. But then, I've said that before.

Feel better! Go cuddle up under the "monstrosity" and hook some and you'll feel better.
