I'm all set for Rhinebeck—the sweater is done! Now I'm busy editing photos while the tech editor reviews the pattern. I plan to publish it in the next week or two.
I'll be wearing it Saturday at Rhinebeck. My sister Betsey (who modeled the sweater) and I are going for the first time. We can't wait to experience the legendary festival.
The yarn is a new sportweight merino/silk blend from Stitch Sprouts called Yellowstone, in the Bison colorway. On US5 needles, it knit up at a blocked gauge of 5.75 stitches to the inch. It's the same yarn I recently used for a new sample of my Bluet cowl. Once again, it produced beautifully even stitches and a lovely fabric.
If you're still working on your Rhinebeck sweater—good luck!
P.S. The naturally dyed cotton gauze scarf is made by Sonia of Cozy Memories. I love her natural colors, use of organic materials, and exquisite sense of design.
