Heroine update....I ripped out the sleeves 4 times.. til I was able to get them to fit in where the sleeve 'should' go.. let's just say THEY FIT...... spent the afternoon sewing it all together.. but its going to get felted.. and I'm going to felt living crap out of it.. so as to cover as many mistakes (if any - b/c quite honestly I don't know if there are any) but hopefully in the end I"ll have a nicely felted jacket.. or SOMEONE else shall.. if it doesn't fit me... and not owe my Mom a new washer in the making! so tomorrow's lunch hour shall be action packed, people!
In the mean time, I started a pair of socks.. toe up, waffle stitch pattern.. not a big deal really.. just been wanting to get something done to with this sock yarn... that I can actually fit on my feet.

And I attempted to sew up the Heroine.. and well.. it's CUFFED.. :) and I threw in corner.. Sinatra's made use of it.. for now.. I'll just recycle it, when he gets up...
Further, I finished the Fan Neckwarmer.. I like it.. VERY simple pattern...

This was THE best instant gratification project to date...Took me one day!.. and the knitting in of the fleece was fun and different.. The fleece from Marvelous Merino's Etsy shop is WONDERFUL!!!!... you have to try it!...incredibly soft!!!
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande
Fleece: Marvelous Merino's Natural Top (undyed)
Size made: Youth
The last two pictures were taken BEFORE I beat the fleece (ahem felted, the fleece w/a brush.) and trimmed it up.
C likes it.. I still have a good amount left of the fleece.. I'm guessing enough to thrumb some mittens, so the remainder WILL get used.! Love this stuff!
