I'm making progress on Ben's sweater, the fronts are looking good. The two pounds of Jacob wool are almost finished. I began the natural black the other day and even found a bit more of the gray to spin. The Icelandic birch spindle is one of my favorite tools.
The fronts of the cotton top are coming along a bit slower. I took out two of the contrast yarn stripes and will continue to use the dark brown between the contrasting stripes. The texture in addition to the color gives the fabric a more cohesive look.
