At 46 I decided to climb Kilimanjaro to celebrate my 50th birthday. I figured that way I would spend a few years looking forward to turning 50. The mountain looks like something dreamt up by Dr. Seuss. The plants are bizarre and a bit comical. These were bearded rocks we passed on the way up. Mother Nature has quite the sense of humor.
Chunky knit and completely reversible, switch sides according to your mood for the day. I knit this with a combination of local grown Latvian wool, kid mohair, cotton and silk. All the colors are hand blended during the knitting process. I hand sew the seams using scrap ends from my other sweaters leaving knot ends as a boho touch. Its part of my zero waste attempt. I PREWASHED this sweater on a wool cycle and then laid it flat to dry, so go ahead and do the same.
