Sock Monkey project I've been tossing around the idea to make sock monkey pants for Owen for a while.
I was gonna use the handspun stuff I've been making...but I needed gray.

I found someone in a Raverly group for "yarn farmers" who had a BFL/Corriedale mix that was gray. I contacted her & she washed & carded a batt for me. Here are some pics

The raw fleece...purdy :)

The washed fleece

The 4oz batt :D

So now I think it's just gonna be too pretty for a soaker or longies.
I'm gonna make some actual sock for Serena & one for Owen :)
Wish me luck...gotta spin the yarn first.
