Handspun Shawl from my shetland ewe
I just finished the knitting portion of this shawl, so excited! I tried to spin as thin as I could, but don't think its quite lace weight. Used size 4 circular needles from pattern I bought from Fiddlesticks. Still need to block it, but couldn't wait to share!

So you did this yourself from the sheep up? Fantastic!! I'll bet more than one of us would like to have wool on the hoof, but I don't think I have the husbandry skills to pull it off. LOL When you get that blocked it will be transformed. It is going to be even more beautiful. Congratuations on a great undertaking carried off well! And welcome to KH.
