One Week Away

Can you believe Rhinebeck is only a week away? Will I have a finished sweater to wear? I am happy to report that as of today Girl Friday is completely off the needles. All I have left to do is weave in those pesky ends and give it a good soak. MB and I will be making a trip to M&J Trimming on Wednesday afternoon to find the perfect buttons. So it looks like I will have something to wear after all.

My head will be toasty warm too. I finished Sockhead Hat #2 yesterday. I am happy with how it turned out. I can't see those two blob spots so I'm fine with it. I also had a nice amount of yarn leftover so you all know where that's gonna end up.

Pattern: Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure
Yarn: Socks That Rocks - Gingerbread Dude
Needles: Knit Picks Fixed Circs Size 2.5
Started: August 1, 2010
Finished: October 8, 2010
Mods: Same as the last one. Knitted a total length of 10" and then started decreases.

I'm so excited about this upcoming week. I only have to work two nights. Then I pick my sister up on Wednesday morning. Thursday we're meeting Kim for lunch. Friday MB and I are heading up to Rhinebeck early because we decided to sign up for the Beginning Spindle Workshop on Friday morning. I bought a spindle two Rhinebeck's ago and am super excited to finally get some help/knowledge of what to do. BIG week!!! Can't wait to see some of you very soon!!!


  1. Oh I can't wait for the fun to begin! Sockhead #2 looks fab.

  2. I'm still in denial that we're almost at sheep and wool time! I'll definitely be able to find you with that hat on. And spindle class sounds fun.

  3. "Will I have a finished sweater to wear?"

    What a silly question! Of course you will! You are Super Speedy Knitter Who Is Awesome At Focusing On A Project. :)

    Have a great time at Rhinebeck! One of these years I'll make it up there (it's only 45 minutes from my mother-in-law's house). Can't wait to read your report on it!

  4. Wooo hooo!!! Rhinebeck!

    Even if you didn't get Girl Friday done, which you will, you have many lovely things in your closet that you could wear.

    I'm going to have to make me a sockhead one of these days, so cute.
