I am very new here and just getting the hang of things.  So to see if I am doing this correctly I will show this baby sweater I made from the wool, mohair, and angora from my animals.  I sheared them myself, processed the fibers, spun the yarn, made the sweater without a pattern, just going along with what the voices in my head told me to do.  It turned out ok, I just had to roll up the sleeves a tiny bit on the baby.  It's pretty soft and not too too fuzzy.  It was my first project from sheep to sweater.  Thanks for looking.  I am so happy to have found craftster.org, so many wonderful and inspiring things here, keep up the good work everyone.

I'm not sure if this will show the pictures...  Not only new here, also somewhat dyslexic so I could be doing the posting thing incorrectly (this is why I can't follow a knitting pattern!)

This is a great sweater!  I am so amazed with people who make up their own patterns... and it's even more awesome that you made the yarn, too!  Very awesome.

Now I see!   Cheesy

I am blown away!  Isn't it amazing to think that you raised the sheep that provided the wool that became the yarn that knitted into this lovely sweater?  Congrats, it's just so sweet, and darn resourceful, too!

Thanks everyone for the nice feedback.  Now that I'm getting the hang of craftster I look forward to posting all my other "stuff"!
