Fire & Ice is finally done!
It's finally off the needles and on my body!
This has been my main summer project. I challenged myself to create at least one big project each season with local fleece (to help the environment and support local farmers). So off I went to find local fleece, dye, spin, design and knit myself up a sweater.
Yesterday was definitely feel like fall. Am I the only on looking forward to sweater season?

I lurve my new sweater.

Here's the final chapter of my Fire & Ice sweater project
100 Mile Fiber Fest
