Jillian’s Spinning: How’s Your Rhinebeck Sweater Coming Along?
With just over a month before Rhinebeck (yay!) this is what my Rhinebeck sweater looks like (boo!):
Notice all of the yarn that looks like ramen noodles? There’s hundreds of yards of it. All of the knitters out there know what that means – I ripped all of my knitting out.
I realized I was making a sweater with 4-6″ of positive ease, no, bad knitter. For once it wasn’t a case of magically changing gauge. I just cast on the wrong size and highlighted it all the way through the pattern in the wrong size. I knit to the underarms going top down before I noticed, not a lot, but I was on track to finish in time.
I ripped and now the race is on!
It’s part of the fun isn’t it?
How about the rest of you, how’s that Rhinebeck wear coming along?
