I sat next to Jon in his office this morning. On his computer screen in front of us six of the people Jon has a Zoom meeting with every week. Sometimes I join in.
Today Wendy was knitting with my blue wool from Constance and Socks. She held up the beginning of a sweater so we could all see it.
Diane was on the screen too, with one of Suzy Fatzinger’s Shawls draped over her shoulders. I felt warmer and snuggly just looking at her.
The shawl was a beautiful combination of natural colors, similar to Suzy’s lastest and last shawl of the season Osage and Oatmeal.
The pale green wool in Suzy’s shawl is naturally dyed from an Osage tree. And that warm white along the edge is called Oatmeal. Much of the mohair Suzy used in the shawl comes from her angora goats, Lucy, Alice, April and Ruth. But she likes to add other wool to her shawls too, like the locks spun into the white.
We’re already sold eight of Suzy’s hand spun hand knit shawls this fall. Each one unique. Each one a soft and warm wearable piece of art.
