Finally!!


...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'!
