The Most Amazing Sweater EVER EVer ever!!!

The Most Amazing Sweater Ever is finished!!
It took 8 weeks to complete from
spinning to knitting to finishing!
And somewhere in there I took about a 2 week break.
So really, I could have finished it in 6 weeks!
Here it is, in its first live appearance at Bear Paw

This was so much fun!
Thank you to everyone who has joined me
on this little adventure of mine!

And thank you to all of the following
amazing fiber artists whose talent went into
shearing, cleaning, dying, carding, pulling,
and what ever else you talented people do to make pretty fibers!!

CJ Delights
Edith (geFilzt)
It’s A Colorful Life
W.C. Mercantile

And of course our Queen of Enabling:
Jessie with Phat Fiber!
More Information on Phat Fiber can be found here!

And the Fibreholics Group!

If you've seen your fibers spun up on spindles
and posted on my blog from August - September
and you don't see your name here or,
if your store link is missing or not working,
please email me at:
and I'll correct it!

And of course, another Thank you goes out to the Spindle Makers
who made my ability to spin non-stop a reality!
Over 80% of this sweater was spun on my Jenkins Spindles
15% was spun on my IST Crafts spindles
and 5% was spun on my Spanish Peacock spindle
(Mike, it would have been more but my SP just wasn't very portable!)

Look, we could be sisters!

And AtomicBlue was kind enough to locate a
great Top-Down Sweater Tutorial
for anyone interested!

And here's a link to where you can purchase this pattern:

And the posts in between show spindles and spindles
full of the yarn that was spun for the AMAZING SWEATER!!

If you are looking for the pattern,
I started with the Knitting Pure & Simple pattern
for a Neckdown Long Hooded Cardigan (#225).
But somewhere past the shoulders,
it took on a life of it's own!
YAY I'm Done!!
