Spinning Gromit

My current project is spinning my friend's poodle hair, which became even more poignant after Gromit passed away recently (this fur is from his very last haircut). I'm also working on hair from Rufus' very first haircut and will make a new skein for each time he gets a cut--once or twice a year. My friend plans to knit a series of squares to make into a Rufus blanket. I think the various squares will each have a subtle shade difference as he gets older and look beautiful stitched together.
