This year’s handspun sweater

I have a private little goal with myself to knit a handspun sweater each year.  So I present to you the second annual Shells handspun sweater.

I don’t actually have a whole lot of this handspun, so I’ve chosen a february lady sweater with cap sleeves.  The fiber was lorna’s laces wool top, 10.5 oz.  This is a 2 ply yarn which I pulled into small strips in order that I’d have less striping and more barber poling and muddying of colors.  I can see that there are stripes, but nothing noro like, so I am pleased thus far.  I think I will do the cap sleeves next so that I can just use the rest of the yarn for the body of the sweater.
