Jillian here with progress on my pretend Rhinebeck sweater [I’m pretending that I’m going].

I’m knitting Killybegs from Contemporary Irish Knits.

I’m nearly to the armholes, take a peek at the lovely honeycomb:

Almost to the armholes

 

Honeycomb cable

The cable pattern is easy to memorize, it’s great tv knitting. I’m a little concerned about the i-cord cast on being to tight, but not concerned enough to rip all the way back. If it turns out to be a problem I’ll cut it off and work an alternate edge.

Is anyone else knitting  a Rhinebeck sweater for a real or pretend trip to Rhinebeck?

    I’m not headed to Rhinebeck, but I’ve been thinking bout a hand-spun vest with commercial yarn for stripes and edgings (Or a sweater, depending on the yarn I find)

    I’m game. I can’t go too far for me to make the trip. I am working on Undercurrent. I am using all scraps and spare skeins of Noro that I have. I am not buying any yarn for it.

    I decided to knit myself a scarf (something that I realized I have never done) and I am going to a fiber festival in Virginia this weekend to get my fix.

    I just finished Oranje almost 2 weeks ago. I cannot go to Rhinebeck this year, so it is my pretend sweater. It is certainly enough of a showcase sweater to be a Rhinebeck sweater.
