This inviting, lavishly illustrated book presents 30 of the most popular designs from the famous Green Mountain Spinnery, a collective of highly creative knitters, designers, and craftspeople located in rural Vermont, whose passion for natural fibers, colors, and designs is legendary. Knitters of all abilities, from beginner to advanced, will find a wealth of designs (and color combinations) from which to choose from appealing sweaters, vests, cardigans, and children's sweaters, to accessories such as hats, scarves, socks, and mittens. Each design is fully illustrated with color photographs, pattern charts, and schematics. A delightful addition to any serious knitter's library. Full-color throughout.
The Green Mountain Spinnery, a worker/owner cooperative, was founded with a distinctly Vermont mission: to produce the highest quality all-natural yarns, to help sustain regional sheep farming, and to develop environmentally sound ways to process natural fibers. Since then the Spinnery has grown and thrived, designing and producing all-natural yarns in alpaca, mohair, wool, and organic cotton that are known and loved by knitters and weavers across the country. Unlike most commercial mills, the yarns they produce with vintage equipment are untouched by bleach or chemicals. New members, new ideas, new product lines, and more continue to spin out from this talented, knowledgeable, devoted collective.
