Taos Sweater Finished!

Last October, my friend Michelle and I purchased a chocolate brown fleece at the Taos Wool Festival.  It was a CVM/cotswold/corriedale fleece. When I returned home, I washed, carded and spun my half into yarn with the idea of knitting a sweater to enter in the fiber arts show at Taos this year.  I also spun white cormo wool/silk and merino/angora yarns so that I could dye them in pastel colors to use in the sweater.  Over the weekend, I finished my project and I am very pleased with the outcome.  I saw Michelle today and asked her to model it for me.  

That's it for today.

That is absolutely stunning!! I particularly love the green leaf motif in among the brown (and what a lovely brown fleece that must have been).
