The Lady's Sweater

It start just the same as the Men's Sweater, with raising that cute little lamb and all.


But this time I pulled out the lighter shades of gray of Carnie's fleece and blended it with some mohair I had been gifted during the Tour de Fleece a few years back.



It was all just another experiment gone right. The result is such a soft lofty yarn with just a touch of shimmer and halo that was a dream to spin and knit with.


The pattern is one I has admired for a while, Ann Hanson's Violet.  My own homegrown, handspun yarn seemed like a good choice to do it justice.


{How about those buttons?!}

Most of the this knitting took place during our every other week sessions at the infusion lab.
Fritz's nurses have tracked my progress on this one and I look forward to showing them the finished project. They are a wonderful group of people, 

who take such good care of us. 
Always Grateful, 
~Joan

It's an absolutely beautiful sweater! And to think you not only knit it, but grew the fleece and spun the yarn! Amazing.
