What are you most proud of? I hand spun the yarn used in the yoke after enrolling in "From Fluff to Stuff". the pencil roving had been purchased in 2013 at the Maryland Sheep and Wool (MSW). I'm so happy to have spun it and knit it into a garment before the 2014 MSW.

What an excellent idea, using your hand spun on the yoke! I think I'll try it!
