I’ve got fast approaching deadlines in my life, mostly involving getting ready for the festival. I had a little freak out last week but I think I’m over it. When I’m not home, I’m working on the Rhinebeck sweater:

That’s the back and both fronts, just completed this week. A sleeve is in progress at the moment. Leigh was kind enough to give me the heads up that there’s been some discussion on Ravelry about the saddle not working out quite right and/or there being a little too much fabric in the main part of the sleeve. Thank you so much for pointing out these discussions Leigh! I’m finding it terribly difficult to keep up with the number of groups that might be of interest to me on Ravelry! There’s just so much valuable information and only so many hours in the day! Who knew that this book had its own group?! Well.. obviously Leigh did.
So what to do about these sleeve issues. Well, having laid things out I decided to see how my sleeve matched up to the rest of the sweater so far.
Not quite there yet.
I think I’ll continue to increase as written in the directions until it looks as though they’ll fit. Then I’ll just knit even if I need more length to match my measurements. I’ll probably end up doing the same with the saddle since there’s apparently an issue there too. I’m just glad I knew up front. I don’t need any more stress in my life right now.
Another great stress reliever was having another spinning gathering at my house on Saturday and spending a glorious day outside with Carolyn, Deb, Kim and Anne. Did I get a single picture? Of course not. That’s just how I roll lately. I really should have busted out the camera when I shared the glory of chocolate mug cake with Anne and Kim before they left. Let’s just say it was worth a good laugh (and it’s seriously good for the taste buds too, but you might want to share with a friend). Just make sure you have a spatula ready if you’re going to do it in a cup too small. Just sayin’.
I suppose I could write more but I’m just too distracted at the moment. I’m stalking the UPS dude waiting for a new toy. More soon.
