March has been a quieter month. We had our last show at the Wayland Winter Farmer’s Market Fiber Days and I did a program for my spinning guild on blending for a gradient. Mostly I’ve been knitting for myself. I made the brown sweater in the photo above. The brown is a from a fleece from Black Brook Farm that I’ve had forever of unknown breeding and the white is from a Border Leicester fleece that I acquired several years ago from a horse acquaintance. I’ve had the idea of a yoked brown sweater in my head for a long time. I’m not totally sure I’m in love the the yoke pattern but the sweater fits wonderfully and will be a great addition to my wardrobe.
We’ve been so busy this month prepping for Rhinebeck. We had a great Rhinebeck and sold our of yarn and patterns so we’ve been dyeing, skeining and printing like crazy to get ready for Fiber Festival next weekend. Cindy finished her sweater for Rhinebeck.
Our new summer shawl pattern using our blue gradient yarn. The shawl uses three gradient hanks. The pattern will be available soon.
Sarah has knitted the Baobabs Shawl in our hand dyed gradient purple yarn. The shawl takes two gradient yarn hanks It’s a nice lacy shawl for Spring. Its pictured in our garden under the shade phlox that are blooming now.
