I'm SO excited that Aster Fiber Co is our Virginia dyer!!
As the Sun comes up on the beginning of this, our tenth year may I introduce you to my 2023 colorway…Song at Daybreak EXPERTLY dyed by Kendra of Aster Fiber Co.
Inspired by the beautiful vistas from McAfee Knob not far from here in Catawba, VA. It is perfectly named for a poem by Frank Dempster Sherman.
Kendra’s husband, James is the photographer who captured the inspiration from McAfee Knob.
I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am with this colorway…I hope that you too will be inspired by it too.
I found the perfect named one skein shawl pattern...drum roll please...
"Break of Dawn" by Janina Kallio
Song at Daybreak
Unto the portal of the Day there came
A shining presence fashioned out of flame,
And from that purple threshold of the world
Arrows of fire across the shadows hurled.
Into the forest, over plain and sea
The darts in silence sped unerringly,—
Lances of sunlight from the Morning’s bow,—
Until the firmament was all aglow.
Then from the zenith suddenly I heard
The dew-fresh notes of some enraptured bird,
Lost in the golden labyrinth of light,
Singing the dreams of a departed Night.
--Frank Dempster Sherman
