Celebrate!! First “fleece to garment!”

I am so excited to have gone from this:

This was the buttonbox pattern from Knitty, and I am so pleased!! I frogged three other items before landing on the pattern that was meant for this yarn, and it was a fun one to knit. The fit is perfect, but I confess my swatch ran large so I knit for the 31″ instead if the 36″ and am so glad I did! The needle size felt right for the yarn so I didn’t want to mess with that.

So, I did it! Bought the fleece, washed, carded, spun, dyed and knit my first “directly from the local sheep garment.” I am hooked.

Spin on, and happy Friday!
