FIrst Sweater

Hi guys,

It's been a while since I've posted. The combination of full-time work, part-time school for PhD, and my spinning and knitting doesn't allow me to really post and converse. Trust me, I do read the sight everyday. I enjoy hearing the stories and sharing information.

I finished my first sweater yesterday. It was from a merino blend I hand spun. So I'm ready for some new yarn. You can get tired of working with one color. Suffice it to say, I had to start a scarf project and a sock project that can be finished now that the sweater is done. They provided appropriate distractions.

...I can't begin to imagine how many hours it must take to spin the yarn...and then knit a sweater!!!!

This jumper is beautiful. It looks like a saddle yoke; true? Is it pieced? I think it's so cool to spin your own knitting wool and then knit up a garment for yourself!

My knitting is totally tubular!
