I think it is time for a blog update. I recently was in a Craftser swap and got some beautiful homespun yarn. Wool/Angora Blend 3 ply. I asked for gerbil colors. I knitted up some knitted gerbils from my pattern. I went down a needle size since the yarn was a little thinner. They turned up great. The angora really brings out the gerbil. I might enter this little guy in the local fair in the fall. They look so real. What do you think? I am slowly trying to wean myself off all acrylic and go for more wool or wool blend yarns. I am planning on taking these guys to the gerbil show in May.
