So here’s my version of Gramps. The pattern calls for pockets and elbow patches, and while I’m usually a huge fan of pockets, I didn’t think this colorful yarn needed anymore busy-ness.
The Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted is incredibly soft. It feels wonderful against the skin, but I’m going to have to see how it works out in the wearing. I like at least a little bit of sturdiness in a cardigan yarn, and this might fall into the not-quite-enough category. Time will tell.

We have the cutest house guest ever! This is Shanti, and she’s staying with us while her mom and dad are on a cruise. Most of the pictures I take of her look like this one.
The only time she’s still is when it’s time to concentrate on the respiratory system.
She’s an excellent student.
