Julia Farwell-Clay designed a spectacular sweater especially for handspun for this issue of Knittyspin.
Party Mix is a lovely sweater and could be the ultimate stash busting sweater. Especially since most spinners buy dyed fiber in similar colorways. I know I do – anyone need purple/brown colored fiber?
Party Mix was an instant hit, lots of spinners are making it. Even non-spinners are knitting it. Two of my spinning gang started it last week, and I’m plotting one.
Julia wrote about her spinning and design process on her blog, Moth Heaven.Â I love how her brain works when she writes about design. I also love that she gave us two versions of the sweater, all Spunky Eclectic handspun and handspun plus Cascade 220.
I know my stash holds the makings of a gorgeous Party Mix , I have to finish something (anything) before I start on my Party Mix. I do know I’ll be making it into a cardigan and don’t know yet if it will be all handspun or handspun and millspun. So many options!
Have you started your Party Mix? All handspun or handspun+millspun? Planning one? Finished already and wearing it to Rhinebeck?
