Months ago, I had finished spinning a beautiful, tweedy yarn that was a blend of corriedale wool, Merino silk & Merino Tencel.
Then I went hunting for someone who'd be crazy enough to knit me a sweater out of it & I found them.
Michelle of OakGroveAlpacas http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=15376 (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=15376) agreed to send the yarn to her grandmother Patti in Florida to have it knitted.
It has returned to me & it looks absolutely gorgeous.
