Sorry guys but I’m going to be a bit boring today with a third post in a row on Raspberry Tart. No choice if I’m going to get her done before Rhinebeck.
I’m sure you’re getting close to having heard enough about this design – I’m losing steam too. I got up yesterday morning and decided I couldn’t bear to work on RT. You know how the rest of this goes right?
Ravelry browsing. Here’s how it went down.
Ooh I can fave more things for Rhinebeck shopping! I forgot about Deep End – it’s a great excuse to shop for mini skeins of sock yarn. I wonder if Miss Babs will bring any her kits of mini skeins – polydactyl or gradient. Gradients are fun – I wonder what designs use them. Traliccio is new to me. Spectral too.
An hour later and a bunch more designs to shop for at Rhinebeck – and not a stitch more knitted. Thinking about knitting and looking at others’ knitting was sadly doing nothing to help get my sweater done for Rhinebeck.
So I took RT out of the bag and started knitting. I made a deal with myself – 10 rounds this weekend And a couple hours later I hit that magic number.
Here’s the back…
and the front…
and a close up of those cables…
Contrary to what it looks like on the mannequin, I’m about halfway through the bust area. I think I have 2 more full repeats of cables and then the bottom ribbing. I tried it on again yesterday and it still fits great!
If I finish this one in time this will be the third sweater I’ll have finished for Rhinebeck in 9 years of attending. There’s something about that festival that motivates me to get things done.
I’ll catch you on the purl side.
