Brandt’s birthday was yesterday. This is what he picked out at Rhinebeck for his present. I’m totally geeked to start knitting his new sweater. I’m not quite sure the design yet, but I do know it will be another zip up cardigan style sweater. He wears the one I made him last year all. the. time. So he’s getting another.
This is Maine Organic, from Green Mountain Spinnery. It is awesomely sheepy, and also something I wouldn’t have picked out myself. I knitted a swatch immediately. Though I think a 7 or 8 needle would be best for this yarn, I’m going to go with 6’s, so this will be a more sweater-jacket type thing. Perfect for layering. We’re big layer-ers over here.
And these are for me! I was so very good at Rhinebeck this year. Just these yarns and a pattern for my Mum is all that I bought. I think these will be mittens of some kind. They are from Zeilingers Woolen Mill, and I love them.
Shop update tomorrow! Lots of Halloween yarns!
