Have Your Oats Daily


Oats 2

I finally finished my fleece to sweater for this year. There is nothing like taking a fleece and turning into a garment. It's especially fun when you know the sheep's name, in this case Shauna. This was Shauna's last fleece before she went over the rainbow. I love how it turned out. I had to redo the button bands and the replace the buttons because I tend to go to quickly when I am nearly finished with a project. The problem with that is I don't spend quality time making it the best it can be. It is much better since I reworked it.
