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 (an Etsy shop) agreed to send the yarn to her grandmother Patti in Florida to have it knitted.
It has returned to me & it looks absolutely gorgeous.
My blog has more pictures of the sweater & the yarn.

That yarn is absolutely gorgeous! And that's a lovely sweater as well. Any chances of an action shot?

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

 Huh
Smiley No worries - an Action Shot is simply a picture of the item being used/worn.
