My first REAL handspun yard and I LOVE IT! Can I ever go back to machine spun?

I knitted this little sweater over a cute little glass bottle about a year ago thinking it will come in handy someday.......well, that day came yesterday when my grand-nephew needed to put his feather pen somewhere. He asked, "What happens if I get ink on the sweater?" And I answered, "That's your problem because you own it now. I suppose if you don't want ink on the sweater you might want to be careful about that." And he answered, "Cool." I thought it was rather cool also. :)

Adult Surprise Jacket of Many Purples

Last winter I was part of a Adult Surprise Jacket class at my LYS, Mendocino Yarn Shop. Very Fun! I didn't really want to buy yarn so I went through my stash and went with purple. I used Cascade 220 in four shades of purple and light purple in alpaca. The buttons are sterling sliver with a Celtic design. I liked the square shape of the buttons. I finished the jacket in the spring. Today I delivered it to the Mendocino County Fair for judging. We shall see what the judge thinks. I am waiting for cold weather so I can wear it!
