As of last night (since I just woke up this morning…at noon, whoops) the Rhinebeck sweater (which probably needs a name) had bottom ribbing (and ribbing on the bottom of one sleeve),
and a completed yoke!
I’d written three charts, but didn’t use the last one – the yoke looked like it was getting a bit long. I just winged the colourwork in there – mostly just stripes anyway. I put in the short rows in blue, which you might be able to see in the photograph, and then finished up with a few rounds of ribbing. The yoke is the right length and it is FABULOUS.
The only things left to do are the ribbing on the second sleeve (seriously about 8 rounds), weaving in ends (most of which are already done), and a good wet block. I’m going to block tonight so that it’ll be dry and ready to go on Friday, and then it’ll make its debut on Saturday!
No sudden dashes towards the finish line, car finishing, or anything. Almost anticlimactic really.
(But I really need to work on schoolwork the rest of the week before we go. Dude, I’m so excited!)
