...I can post something here! I've been a member of Spun Stitches for quite some time, now I have a post to put up.

This is my first "Sheep to Sweater" project. I'm SO in love with this sweater, and proud of the fact it started with a large bag of 100% shetland fleece (Eva Braun was the ewe's name) that I had no idea what to do with.
At first she was destined to become Alice Starmore's St. Brigid but I had a heck of a time getting gauge with my handspun. Then I saw Angela Hahn's Aran Wrap Cardigan in Vogue Fall '08, and knew that was it.

I have about 500 yds leftover, maybe I'll make a hat to go with it?

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!

Heartland Lace Shawl

Heartland 5

I finished Heartland in July of 2008, but never got around to posting it because I was huge with child. I gave her the proper photo shoot and written description on my blog.
