Green Mountain Spinnery is a small, sustainable family-owned yarn company located in one of the states my alter (richer) ego has dreamed of living—Vermont.
They put out a call for submissions for sweater designs using their Mountain Mohair yarn. It’s a mostly wool blend yarn with 30% mohair “sourced from Angora Goats from various herds across the country from Vermont to Texas.” And it has cool color names like Alpenglo, Blue Gentian, Edelweiss, and Vincent’s Gold.
Being that my Icelandic sweater design would be perfect for this yarn, and being that it was available for submission, I sent it in—a full 11 days ahead of the deadline.
While the stranded yoke would look good in just about any three of Green Mountain Spinnery’s colors, I proposed ones similar to the swatch because a) that color combo works, and b) you never know about another person’s ability to envision.
They notify in three weeks from the submission deadline, so please send up prayers for good news on June 12th.
To Ponder: If you find something that feels right but doesn’t seem to fit into your master plan, take a chance, and commit to it by working hard. You shouldn’t be afraid to let passion get behind the wheel.You might really love where you end up. |-Jerry Yang-|
