My Rhinebeck Sweater 2014-
The colors of the year inspired the color choice for my sweater. I chose one of my favorite yarns from Green Mountain Spinnery, Weekend Wool. Locally sheared sheep line up to doff their
gorgeous fleeces to be included in such an amazing yarn, lovingly processed by the cooperators of the Spinnery and then hand knit into a beautiful sweater that you can wear for many Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festivals to come. This asymmetrical hooded cardigan is a modern twist on your favorite wardrobe staple.
