It amazes me that I can take something like this, take a little time to wash it and clean it up, spend the summer spinning it, ply it up into yards and yards and yards of gorgeous 2ply laceweight, find a pattern and knit a sweater.
It isn’t just what I did that is amazing. I am amazed by the colors in the wool, all natural, with silver streaks. I love the randomness of it, I love that nature can give us something that stunning. I love the way this fleece spun up, all silky while spinning, and then fluffy once the yarn was finished. I love the softness of the sweater. I love that though I invested a ton of time into it, the pay off ended up being even better than I expected. All in all, I just adore this sweater!

Wow so lovely! So glad you posted all the pics. I really enjoyed them. The outcome is just gorgeous and you will be warm all winter. Love it!
How many yards of hand spun lace weight is that? Wow.
It’s so beautiful! You’re right about the natural color variations. It looks great!
I believe it was about 1400 yards. Scary part? This is only about 1/3 of that corriedale fleece. I’ve got a ton more spinning to do!
