I just finished the final details of a top down raglan cardigan from Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top. I added a rolled collar and slightly rolled cuffs, and clasps down the front. Its hand dyed, spun and of course knit; my first ever handspun sweater!

I posted pix on my blog;

Well done Martha - what a beautiful colour! I bet it will be warm too.

Very Pretty sweater! And I enjoyed reading about the process you used to spin the yarn . . .

What dyes did you use? I love the colors!

Beautiful! I'm working on a cardigan from yarn I spun, too. Very rewarding :)

So much to learn, so little time.

Color me impressed. Your sweater is gorgeous. I've been spinning for three years and I still have had the patience to spin enough for an entire sweater. But yours is beautiful and may just inspire me to attempt it yet.
