Sample Box Sweater

The Sample Box is one of the most popular items in my shop and I am constantly amazed at the creativity of what people make from them.

Linda of Sunset Fibers has made this delightful sweater using pigtails from a BFL Sample Box.

Here is her description of how she made this sweater:

"I took all the colorways, stripped them lengthwise by 4 and rolled them up into balls, threw them in a basket, added a few of my own colorways and tossed them like popcorn. I spun them randomly end to end then 2-plyed from the inside and outside of a ball. I did a side to side sweater striping it out with a next-to-the-skin soft romney fleece that I bought a few years ago. The result was exactly what I hoped for. I have enough for slippers too!!! Woo Hoo."

Thanks, Linda, for sharing your lovely creation. You may visit her website at www.SunsetFibers.com
