In the spirit of Jasmin 2010, I have been on a finishing binge. After the Tour de Fleece, I decided to finish up some spinning projects that were languishing on plastic weaving bobbins, and the first project on my list was the baby cormo fleece that I bought at the Retzlaff winery in 2009 and split with the fabulous Meghan.

Before I say anything else, you should know that this fleece is so soft and crimpy, that it's no longer just "cormo". You have to roll your r's. Rrrrrrrrr. Corrrrrrrrrrrrmo. It's that soft.

The baby is all grown up!



and finally:


I wish you could feel how fabulous this yarn is. When I was finishing the singles, Gnat was positively bombarding me with fantastic sweater suggestions, including the Baby Cables and Big Ones Too sweater.

Go ahead, click on it. It's GORGEOUS, and is totally feeding my current obsession with cables and yoked sweaters. Of course, from this blog you wouldn't know, since I haven't posted pictures of me in any of the sweaters I've finished except for the Mondo Cable Cardi, but they're coming.

For now, I'll pet the yarn until I cast on the sweater. Which, for the record is queued to get cast on after I finish ... something.


  1. Yummy. I hope to get back to spinning and knitting, once the kids sleep more than hrs hours in a row....

  2. In my next life I'm going to be able to spin that fine. Wow.

  3. Wow! When you put your mind to something it gets done! Good luck with your sweaters.

  4. Beautiful Cormo! And I can also recommend the Baby Cables and Big Ones, Too pattern ~ I knit it earlier this year and it is a fun, quick knit and a beautiful sweater.

  5. Gorgeous! I'd love to see some pics of your plying process.
