Well, unwearable where I work anyway.  Bright orange with crazy green beads...  too much fun.  I have restarted  without the beads and I like it better anyway.  The simple pattern really showcases the hand dyed/spun yarn without distractions.

Baby Clothes

They are small and easy in theory, but what if you forget the buttonholes?  
(This is the famous EZ February baby sweater on two needles. It does not mention buttonholes until you are past the yoke.  I guess you're supposed to read the whole pattern before you start.  Whatever.  Afterthought buttonholes do not meet my standards.)
Start over.

Life is stressful

Life is stressful, make yarn.  I didn't even think I liked pink, but this stuff cheered me right up.  In between Helicopter Underwater Egress Training and fit testing for my self contained H2S respirator, pink fluffy kettle dyed corriedale roving plied with shiny rayon thread gives me 472 yards of calm.  Thank you Mr. Sheep.
