Finally, my Hand Spun Bolero

My face in this photo may not communicate my joy, but I do very much like this bolero. I finished it about a month ago. I can't quite recall how long it took me to spin the cotton, but I think it was about three or four weeks. From this post you can see that it had to be carded as well as spun on my tiny spindle.

The shrug could maybe have been a bit bigger, but I wanted to account for stretching out that cotton usually does. So far I only like it with tank tops, but maybe by fall I'll come around. We'll see. So what do you think of it?


  1. You should be very proud of your work, it is wonderful..I think you look so nice in the shrug..and to think you spun the yarn..Wow, that is awesome.

  2. So cute! And you picked a great color too... it'll go with tons of things!!
