Ann Norling's "One Piece Vest" was a wonderful pattern to showcase my 100% handspun angora.
The "More than Circular Shawl" from Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine
was a great pattern to show off my handspun 50% camel, 50% angora
. Picture jasper beads on the picot edges ended up being the perfect touch! This shawl won a blue ribbon at the Taos Wool Festival.
This handspun, handknit 100% suri alpaca shrug is from a Spincraft
My rabbit Ebony donated her beautiful fiber so I could make this shrug from the Fiber Trends pattern titled "Evening Shrug".
I blended 75% handpainted silk and 25% angora together to knit this "Circle Vest" from Silk Knits
by Elaine Eskesen. It turned out better than I expected! It drapes beautifully!
My angora rabbit Sunny donated his fiber for this head scarf . The pattern came from the Winter 2004 issue of "Spin-Off Magazine".
I made this 100% angora scarf with beads that I added during the plying process. I used the pattern "Naturally Biased Scarf" from the May 2007 issue of "Creative Knitting Magazine".
These 100% handspun, handknit scarves were a cinch to knit using a simple lace pattern a friend told me about:
K1, *yo, K2 tog*, repeat from * to * across.
"The Emperor's New Scarf" pattern by Lucy Neatby turned out to be the perfect pattern to show how elegant 100% angora beaded yarn can be. Made with Sierra with autumn blend beads

was a fun way to use my 100% angora handspun from my beautiful rabbit Cassie.
This 100% angora handspun handknit hat and mitten set also came from the book Handspun Handknit
. The hat was a lot of fun to make! It was knit in a tube shape and then tucked up inside, so it's super warm. This set won a blue ribbon at the Taos Wool Festival.
This "Peruvian Drawstring Pouch" by Rita O'Connell was a great way to use up small amounts of handspun angora and an alpaca/silk blend. This little bag won a red ribbon at the Taos Wool Festival.
These adorable baby booties are 100% angora and so soft
! The pattern is from the book Last Minute Knitted Gifts
