Corridale Fleece Challenge, Multnomah the Finished Piece

Here is what we decided to knit with the yarn from the Corridale Fleece Challenge

Mulnomah

It is tiny and cute as a button, if I say so.

I knit the garter stitch part with the yarn I spun, and the lace with the yarn that my friend S spun. In the finished piece, you can barely tell the yarns are a bit different.
We hand washed the locks as Margaret Stove does it, because my friend S had learned from Margaret years ago. The yarn is spun also ala Stove way. If you are interested in spinning Gossamer weight yarns, check out Margaret's video, priceless!

I might just have to get another one of these fleeces at the Maryland S&W festival this year.

Mulnomah

The original pattern is from HelloKnitty but other than the setup rows, I did my own thing.
Needles US 4, Addy Lace needles.
