POST 1 of 3:: Corkline

There are 3 new pattern designs on display this weekend at Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. Please note, the patterns are NOT available yet but will be soon. They are them on display so you CAN purchase yarn for them!
This design is called Corkline.
A Corkline is an upper line of floats on a gillnet giving it the buoyancy it needs to catch fish. That is the inspiration behind this sweater. A vertical criss cross netting travels around the yoke with a bobble stitch accenting the center of each motif. This pattern also offers a chart that is without bobbles. Either design you choose, this top-down, knit in the round sweater is a unique colorwork sweater for your handmade wardrobe.

The Best Part…

The best part of starting North Bay Fiber is that I’m sharing this journey with my family. They are so supportive and together we have been learning so much!⁣⁣

⁣⁣
Showing my boys how to turn an idea/dream into a business is such an important message. Set goals, make a plan, work hard, and follow through. You don’t know, if you never try.⁣⁣

Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing. - Georgia O’Keeffe⁣

Wool Approved

Dyed samples of my Targhee-Polypay fleece arrived! These are just 7 out of the 12 colors that I’m going to offer. It’s amazing how exact the colors are to the swatches I sent. ⁣I LOVE them!

I can't not wait to see the colors spun up into my first yarn for North Bay Fiber!

P.S. The skein on top is the yarn in it's natural, undyed state. It's such a pretty, creamy natural. I'm definitely going to be offering the undyed version too.
