Sweater Weather – Yep!

September 28, 2013

Last Saturday I blogged about the Rhinebeck Sweater collection. A few days ago, details on my other “favorite” sweater from forthcoming “The Rhinebeck Sweater” was released. This amazing design is Artichoke French by Laura Nelkin. You can visit her blog nelkindesigns.blogspot.com for insight into the process of inspiration to sweater.

Knit buttom-up, in the round with some sweet-ass cable action the most bad ass thumb-holes, this sweater is also at the top of my queue. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I don’t have an appropriate SQ (sweater quantity) of Aran in my stash and don’t have the funds at the moment. But you can bet I will be keeping my eyes peeled next weekend at the Taos Wool Festival for the perfect Aran for this must-have pullover.


In the meantime, my yarn arrived for Ysolda Teague’s Pumkin Ale. The recommended yarn seems awesome, but the colors are sort of limited and I had a very particular shade of gold in mind. I found the perfect shade in Dream in Color Classy, a 100% superwash Merino. Meet Gold Experience:
