We interrupt this spinning discussion to bring you a Rare Breed Sweater Update! I have slowly but steadily been working on completing the right cardigan front and am pleased to announce that I finished it last night.
The bottom row is my Shetland row, featuring yarn from black, morrit, and grey Shetland fleece.
The top row features two colors of North Ronaldsay on the left and right, and Teeswater in the middle.
The body of the sweater is in Ryeland, and the blue seeding and Fair Isle details are from Hog Island roving.
Here are the three main pieces laid out together:
The sleeves are next, which shouldn't take so long. I've used up all my rare breed samples and so the sleeves will be simpler in design. I'm planning to knit the ribbed cuffs in the green, and the rest of the sleeve in the white and blue seeding pattern.
I am very relieved that it's turning out so well.
