My Rhinebeck sweater decision was made late in the game, but what else is new around here? About a month ago, I decided I wanted to wear a new handknit sweater to Rhinebeck and started looking through my patterns for something fast to knit. Briar Rose's Everyday Cardigan looked like the perfect thing because it was knit with big needles, using two strands of yarn and I really liked the simplicity of the style. Chris, who owns Briar Rose is just about the nicest person you will ever meet and do business with. She had my yarn in the mail to me the day after I ordered it. I got right to the knitting, finished the back and two fronts in record time, then bogged down on the sleeves. No particular reason, just got distracted by other things. Finally, the week of Rhinebeck, I finished up the sleeves, got the thing assembled and blocked and sewed on the buttons. I love the sweater. It's a plain, hardworking "everyday" kind of cardigan. One I know I will reach for again and again.
Believe it or not, there's been plenty of knitting going on, just not much in the way of finished goods to show. Something about A.D.D. knitting. I'm this close to finishing my Garter Yoke Cardigan and hope to have something to show in a few days.
