The Shepard and The Shearer 2014

The Shepherd and Shearer is such a wonderful project and I am delighted to get to be part of it this year!

Here is a link to more info about this this annual project and how it began- http://www.fiberfarm.com/2012/11/the-big-announcement

And a link to how to purchase this years kits- http://www.fiberfarm.com/shop/the-shepherd-and-the-shearer-2014

The design began when I received this beautiful yarn-

Image

 

I tend to find the most inspiration for designs from the yarn itself. After much swatching and then sending a few design ideas over, this was cable pattern that I used in my design.

Image

The center cable reminds me of twisting ivy that climbs along the brick wall next to my house.

Image

The outer cables are reminiscent of the tops of the andromeda plant in my backyard.

Image

The yarn is such a delight to knit with that my progress on this design has moved quickly! Here are some in progress shots-

Just a sleeve and pocket linings to go! I can’t wait to get to wear this one!

Shifting Set

I love the gradated yarn sets that Erica at ColorShift Yarn (https://www.etsy.com/shop/colorshiftyarn) has been dyeing up! I chose this one for my first project(s) named Shifting Set.

It is one of her Color Bridge Yarn Sets in the Blue to Gray colorway.

And here is how it knits up-

The Rhinebeck Sweater

I am so absolutely thrilled to be included in this wonderful new book by Ysolda Teague, called The Rhinebeck Sweater.

Included are 12 sweaters by an incredible group of designers. The book is available in print (shipping next month) or as an e-book here: https://ysolda-teague-6zmp.squarespace.com/books/the-rhinebeck-sweater.

Here is my design, Apple Cider Donut :)

Image

Image

  Image

  Image

I have found that the weather at The New York Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck, NY in October can be very difficult to predict. I always take that into account when designing my “Rhinebeck” sweater for each year. Apple Cider is shown with 4” of positive ease so that it may be worn over a t-shirt if the weather is on the warmer side, or used as a jacket over another sweater if the weather is chilly. Buttons are placed at the collar and top of the sweater only to allow for ease of movement. Apple Cider is simply worked from the top down in one piece in Stockinette Stitch, the stitches for the collar are then picked up and worked in a very easy reversible cable and rib pattern and can be worn up or folded over. The sample uses Fisherman 2-ply from Bartlett yarn, a sturdy yarn that knits up beautifully and quickly.

You can find Apple Cider Donut on Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/apple-cider-donut
