I washed, carded and spun up the fibre. It was terrific fun -- I didn't really know what I was doing -- was relying on books, calls to fellow guild members and instinct. I was new to spinning so the yarn was slightly over twisted and didn't have the loft and airiness that my yarns for sweaters now have. As a result, the sweater, when finished was dense and heavy.
When I started spinning the yarn I didn't have a project in mind, but I knew I wanted to make something "substantial". A sweater for my youngest daughter seemed the best idea, because sweaters are "substantial" and she was small so it would not take too long. I dyed the yarn using kool-aid -- easy as anything. The pink is from Strawberry Koolaid, the green from Lemon/Lime, the yellow is Pineapple and the white was good old Minnie.
