My sister took this picture of me after we walked the dogs out in the country by her house. I’ve been wearing this all week hiking and hanging out.
I blocked the sweater twice. The first goround I washed all the pieces in hot soapy water before sewing it together to get the spinning oil and barn dirt out. Block #2 was after I seamed and banded it to get it to final shape. The yarn totally changed in character becoming soft and fluffy and very wearable!
Like a good pair of jeans, I have a sneaking suspicion it will get better and better with continued wear and washing.
BARN YARN FOREVER!!!
My Mom, when she saw me in this sweater asked, “Where are your lederhosen?” WOOT!
