As for the companion shawl, Atlas Peak, I wanted to choose a mountainous name to tie in with the feather-evoking two-colored cable pattern and the peaked merge into the cabled section. It’s always exciting to see raptors overhead!

Did you know that there’s a company, Authentic Abatement, that rents out birds of prey to scare off non-native berry-eating birds?

The Spring Mountain appellation has been the site of two of our favorite and most memorable wine tasting experiences (both at Fantesca, including tastings of Fantesca wines and La Sirena wines). Lush, rich Cabs and Cab blends are the highlight here.

This stole is worked from the bottom up, with two-colored cabling at either end (charts are mirrored).
