wheat grasses blowing with the summer breeze
rolling hills bathed in warm and gentle light
fields of gold glistening in the setting sun

"The Fields of Gold sweater was inspired by these thoughts, as well as the wool used. As I knit with unspun yarn (pencil roving), I am constantly reminded of how close to nature and the earth this wool is. Every blade of grass I discover in the fiber reminds me that this was alive. Part of a living being that rolled in the hay and played. I imagine the sheep that provided me this wool grazed in fields of gold - and in this pattern it’s like coming back home.
 

This design is best suited for an intermediate knitter who would like to learn new techniques."
