They say every woman should own a Little Black Dress...
The dress that does for multiple occasions, and that makes you feel a million dollars. Of course, me being me, I made my own.
Photo kindly taken by my friend Katharine, who also owns the flock who grew the fleece. It's a Gotland/Black Welsh Mountain cross, and was gorgeous to work with. The beautiful black you get from Black Welsh Mountain, but softened by the Gotland genes, and with a lovely long shiny staple. I then carded some of my hand dyed silk in to it, and spun lots of yarn.
Thought maybe not as much yarn as you'd think, essentially it's just a long jumper, and with no sleeves to knit you actually only need the same amount of yarn as a jumper.
Sometimes everything just works in a project, and I'm sure this will rapidly become a wardrobe favourite.
