Jewelled Diverse Crittery Foe

Amy King of Spunky Eclectic recently published a great sweater pattern, Less is More in Knitty.com. The pattern alternates yarns, intending to use yarns spun from "one bump" (four ounce) fiber purchases. What a clever idea!

 I've been spinning up some single-dose fibers (and I split one two-bump fiber into two 4-ounce color batches) to get yarn to make a "Less is More." I ended up with five Falkland wool yarns.

Yarn group shot, top left to right, bottom left to right:

Southern Cross Fibre Diversity: 178 yards
Southern Cross Fibre Jewelled Seas: 154 yards
Hello Yarn Critter: 214 yards
Hello Yarn Foe (pink): 182 yards
Hello Yarn Foe (blue): 111 yards

So, you can probably see where I came up with the sweater name!

I'm in the middle of the second color, and ready to separate the sleeves and the body...
