Woo Hoo, Woobu!

The next project:

Norah Gaughan's Kingscot[e] in BMFA Woobu. I groveled, begged, pleaded with Tina to let me buy some Woobu in a Raven color (Haida) for this sweater. She's stopped dyeing Ravens in Woobu because the colorways turn out silver-y, not black. Apparently some people didn't read the warnings about how Woobu dyes up differently than all-wool fiber (duh, bambu and wool? plant and animal? there's a difference...) and were disappointed.

Huh. Their loss, frankly! I am SO loving the way that the pattern highlights the color and yarn.

(Here's what a poor, abused, formerly lovely cake of yarn looks like, after a day stuffed into a backpack:

All of this is about to be set aside because I've just received the yarn needed to make RPMs for the Sock Summit Sock Museum.

Woo hoo!
