Handspun Heaven

I can't wait to post that I've finally, finally finished the spinning, knitting and blocking of my Cosima sweater using my handspun version of Berroco Cuzco (it just needs buttons).  It's also the first time I've tried to spin a yarn to match a commercial yarn.  Although I think my first batch of yarn was better and really quite close to the commercial yarn (I didn't do as great a job on the second batch), I'm pleased with how it came out.  I love this sweater pattern.  I'm thinking I want to do it a 3rd time, adjusted to use Mandarin cotton yarn.
