Santa Fe Sweater

 
 






 A mad dash to finish up this one.
Leaving for Santa Fe New Mexico and thought this would be fun to bring along
 and I made it- whew!
 
The pattern is a simple top down, I did the ribbing in different colors
and crochet the button band.
 
 Used my own naturally plant dyed yarn
 dyed with
 Madder, Indigo, Weld (my favorite) Walnut Hull, Cutch, Himalayan Rhubarb and Lac
 its quite the process
but worth it.
 
Quirky and colorful
 it fits my personality
 
What are you knitting?
