There is a small village called Spydeberg, in the southern part of Norway. The village symbol is a spear, which refers to “spyd” in the name. It is placed in the park where this photo is taken, a spear against the blue sky. One does not know the exact reason for the name, but Spydeberg is the original name of the rectory, which is located on a hill with several protruding points. It may be these that are compared to spearheads.
However, this symbol is the inspiration for the sweater Spydeberg. The shape of the spear is very suitable for a knitted yoke. And the dark, rusty brown spear towards the blue sky is just beautiful! So, the sweater had to be blue, and the spears brown. The background for the spears is white, to make the contrast outstanding.
