Thanks to my lovely model Sue, in whose home this shot was taken.

Thanks to Corinna Wylie who gave me the fleece to spin from her friendly sheep Mike 

pictured under the peach tree in her garden.

Sue has the right colouring for this garment...and we caught her after a long day at work yet she still looked great.

Project Notes:

-Uses 360gm of 8oly hand-spun natural wool.
-Gauge was 22 sts over 20 rows.
-Measurements 1.76m x 43cm.
-Needles 3mm straights.
-Blocking....use a frame if you can get one.
-Wool was spun in the grease and plied to about a 12 twists per inch. It was washed and      shrunk AFTER spinning.
-Fleece came from a hand-raised happy sheep.
-No solvents, no stripping chemicals, no dyes and no fillers.
