Making the deadline

On Friday, during the van ride down to Rhinebeck, I knitted the 2nd sleeve.

On Friday night, I sewed the sleeves to the body over margaritas.

Oct16-Royale2

And on Saturday, I wore the finished sweater to Rhinebeck. (Royale, available on Ravelry and on Patternfish.)

It was awesome.

I also bought some yarn. More about that tomorrow. There’s some more knitting and drinking to be done first. Hurray for knitting weekends!

    gorgeous. (and seaming while drinking margaritas? impressive.)

  2. OMG! That looks awesome! Can’t wait to hear all about your Rhinebeck adventure.

  3. AWESOME!! Sounds like a fun time.

  4. That sweater is just beautiful. I’m envious of anyone at Rhinebeck. I wanted to make a visit back, but it wasn’t in the cards. Hopefully, next year.

    Looking forward to reading about the rest of Rhinebeck.

  6. You look simply *smashing*! :D Awesome sweater, triumphant Glenna, and what looks like a gorgeous fall day in New York for fondling yarn.

    *envy*

    I need to make a better attempt to get to my local wool festival this spring. In the meantime, I shall live vicariously through your posts!

  11. Lovely sweater. I want to make one!

  12. Hurrah! It looks Fab-you-LUSS!

  13. Just beautiful! What a beautiful combination of cables that manages to be slim rather than bulky! Most cable patterns make me feel like a linebacker, but your design has so many nice vertical lines.

    Can’t wait to hear more about Rhinebeck.
