By Hand LookBook #14 : Hudson Valley
The Fourteenth issue of By Hand travels to the heart of New York's Hudson Valley. For centuries, upstate New York has been the refuge of artists, writers, crafters and city-dwellers—the close proximity to one of the world’s most enticing cities enhances the quiet, sleepy charm of the Hudson Valley region just a few hours north. Here, meet makers with fascinating backstories and unusual past lives, now exploring their crafts fully amidst cozy, pastoral landscapes. It’s no wonder that this area is also home to one of the largest wool festivals each year: the Dutchess County Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY, regularly welcomes tens of thousands of visitors in a single weekend for a fiber celebration.
Lookbook #14 includes a collection of new knitting patterns. Sloane Rosenthal has created a scholarly, cabled sweater in heathery dark tones, and cables take new, botanical shapes in an elegant crescent shawl, designed by Katerina Rieckel. A chic, vintage-inspired cable top by Andrea Hungerford adds a bit of casual flair, while Hannah Thiessen’s chunky, large-scale scarf is a dramatic statement piece.

Covid 19 Update: We are shipping your orders as quickly as we can, but please understand that we are working with a limited staff at a slower pace than usual. The same is true for USPS. Right now, shipping can take up to 10 days longer than they're estimating. This is because of a drastic reduction in air travel, as well as a significant decrease in the USPS workforce, all while the demand for items being shipped has increased significantly.
