Rhinebeck Sweater #1

We are 5 weeks and 2 days away from Rhinebeck weekend!!!

Even though I am still jobless, I am looking forward to this event. My sis will be coming into town for a week and we get to spend the weekend inhaling yarn fumes with good friends.
Since the heat of summer has seemed to pass, I have been knitting furiously away on my Rhinebeck sweater. Depending on how quickly I can get this one done, I will be knitting a second sweater for the weekend since the festival IS 2 days.

The pattern I am knitting is Ursa from Berroco. I am using the yarn from my deceased Gathered Pullover. So far I have The Back, Left and Right Fronts done. I am knitting one sleeve at a time and am about 17" complete on that.

The pattern is knitting up super fast. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is seaming it up. We shall see how long that takes me.


  1. Now I know what to be on the lookout for to find you. That is if you're wearing this on Saturday. :-)

  2. Your sweater gonna be awesome! I have early onset Rhinebeck fever. Can't hardly wait.

  3. I am not enthusiastic about all the seaming for this one, either. I'll be doing that this coming week. Yours is looking good. Can't wait to visit!!!!

  4. LOL@ "Deceased Gathered Pullover". OMG!! Just 5 weeks!! I can't wait. You can do it! I am dreaming of having 2 sweaters as well. We will see what happens. No midnight seaming!!!

  5. You are so far along, you can do it no problem. Your Ursa will be perfect. I'm not nearly as far along as you, there's a good chance I might not make it.
