1  Re: question on roving and handspun sweater knitting in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by helloyarn on: July 15, 2005 09:49:38 AM
I'd say that price is a little high, especially with no mention of micron count.  I'd probably want to feel the wool before buying it.

I have knit a sweater from my handspun.  It was a long time ago, before I had the whole carding thing completely down, as illustrated by the stripes!  I did that from sheep to sweater.  Smiley Coincidentally, it was from a RomneyX fleece.

Hmm.  That link should take you to my blog, but I will bring my scarf here instead. 


See a full view here: http://www.helloyarn.com/razorshellfullview.jpg

Stats:
Pattern from Naive Knitting
2 skeins KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud in Moss held double (Theres a lot left over, but not a full 50 grams.)
size 3 US needles
8″ x 62″, after light blocking (could be blocked more severely)
antique shell buttons and new glass teardrop beads (Note that theres one more point on the cast off edge than the cast on and buy the appropriate number of buttons and beads, unlike me.)

It wads up to the size of a baseball! This yarn is really lovely stuff and perfect for this project. Theres a wonderful drape to the scarf.
