Queued: muse n.

I think I've found a suitable selfish project to make use of (some of) the prodigious leftovers from the Dr's flock of sheep.

...and it's free!  Gauge will probably be a bit tight - I think I'll knit on US10/6mm instead of the recommended 7mm needles - but there are several similar modifications already documented and the pattern looks very amenable to customization.

Also: happy news on the man-sweater front - I've found Perwolle to be up to the de-sheeping task.  I used the special athletic wear destanking formula.  It leaves behind somewhat more scent than I generally prefer, but whatever.  After several washes, sheep-b-gone.  It's nearly dry and should be ready to go for what's predicted to be a very (excessively if you ask me) cold weekend.
