Red Rover, Red Rover

I don't think that I shared this on the blog yet.

This is the first of my skeins of Red Rover chunky yarn I am spinning for my Tappen Zee sweater, out of Lorna's Laces roving, in the Red Rover colorway. I tried to navajo ply it and it went fairly well. It is a fairly even chunky weight. I have a total of 30 ounces and I haven't weighted this, but each skein is one fairly full Ashford bobbin.

I hope that since this is a short sleeved cardi, and since I am short, the body will be fairly short, I hope this will be plenty.

If not-- well, I have some Lipstick red cormo silk that I can use double stranded to finish the body and maybe crochet (ugh!) the neck, sleeves and front edges. I think it will work great.
