Another lady at the store saw my Tiny Sweaters and bought 7 of them. Her husband, now diseased, grew up on Gotland Island. She still visits his family every summer and is taking the sweaters as gifts. Most of her choices were the Shetland sweaters. I told her all about my sheep so she could let her friends and family know what type of wool the sweaters were made of. I also put in an order for a few Gotland Sheep fleeces! ;o)
Sharon made up a hat pattern so I gave it a test run with some of my hand spun Shetland yarn. The brown hat shows the complete pattern. I modified the gray hat a bit just because.We are going to make Hat Kits with our home spun yarn and Sharons hat patterns. Sharons been doing most of the work, planning out how much yarn we need for each hat and finding jars to display our kits in. She has a nice looking plastic jar coming from a company on line. If this sample works we'll put three colors of hand spun and a pattern in each jar for a cool gift idea.
