rhinebeck sweaters?

Yes, there shall perhaps be two!

k&s neckdown wrap

Not that exciting as far as pattern goes, but the yarn sure is pretty! This one’s the Knitting Pure and Simple Neckdown Wrap, in Dream in Color (“dusky aurora”). I think I started this one about two weeks ago, and have mostly been working on it while in the store. I’m actually farther along now – the body is done, one sleeve is done, and the other sleeve is halfway there. So that leaves half a sleeve, the neckband, and ties to go.

Then there’s the Noro Silk Garden wrappy sweater (yes, I *am* into wrap sweaters this year!)…

noro wrap sweater

Just half a sleeve and a good blocking to go. Go go go!

wip/rip: twofer

How about a two for one deal today, hm? Speed things along a little before I get back onto current (not sitting around) projects…

wip/rip: cabled cardigan

A cabled cardigan from Vogue – I can’t really remember what issue, maybe holiday 2005? Yarn is Shelridge Farm W4. The problem with this sweater was, I knit the body (sans pockets, which was fine) and the collar (fine) and then the sleeves, but the sleeves grew so much upon blocking that they were both ridiculously long and too big for the armhole.

So I ripped the sleeves, and I think I knit one again, but it still didn’t fit. And so the sweater sat. I was planning on doing top-down set-in sleeves, but never really got around to it. It’s definitely in the ripping pile – I tried on the body, and it’s too short and a tad too small as well. But I’m just hesitant to take out all those fabulous cables!

single sock-dom

Of course, there’s always the single sock family. On the left is a recently completed one, the sock in sweetgeorgia sock yarn (colourway: fondant). In the middle is an anklet from last summer in Sock Candy – I “rescued” a single skein of this colour from the store and, well, I don’t know what’s going to happen with that. On the right is 1.5 socks out of handspun merino. Not sure when that’s going to happen, either…

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving weekend. I made Butternut and Creamed Spinach Gratin, a brown and wild rice pilaf with chickpeas, and apple upside-down cake for dessert. Mmmm!
