The helmet liner is going to Korea with David. I used sock yarn doubled to get gauge. He'll be able to machine wash it. Plus it's so much softer than regular wool. The color is "Sarge" and my Sergeant loves it. (Try on a helmet if you ever get the chance. They are hideously uncomfortable.)

Okay, so I know that bulky yarn on a bulky gal such as myself isn't too flattering. However, I live in Montana. I need snuggly sweaters. I freeze at least eight months out of the year. The handspun single was lumpy and bumpy and I loved working with it. I tried to knit purled gussets on the sides to minimize the tummy, but it didn't work. This sweater will be wonderful for hot tea on Saturday mornings.
