WIP Wednesday — A Rhinebeck Sweater

I didn’t expect to have a Rhinebeck Sweater this year because I didn’t expect to go to Rhinebeck again but…img_0007

I’ve already got a sweater on the needles, so might as well dub it a Rhinebeck Sweater and head east!  :)  No, actually, I just found a deal on airfare I couldn’t pass up…$317, non-stop, round trip on Virgin!  I haven’t flown coast to coast that cheap in years!  It was just too good to pass up, so Rhinebeck…here I come!

As for the sweater, I’m making progress on the raglan increases!  The pattern is Sabine from CoCoKnits.  A repeat of this sweater I made last year…

It’s got all sort of details I like…top down raglan with YO increases (we can pretend they’re decorative but mostly, I’m lazy when it comes to M1R & M1L), half sleeves, light as a feather.   And I was happy with the mods I made, the original has a bell sleeve that I eliminated.  Also left out some eyelet detailing on the back.

It should be an easy knit!  I’m not usually one for repeating things but this is just the perfect little sweater!  It was a natural match when I saw the yarn (Lace Lux from Lana Grossa).   So now, just keep knitting, which is never a problem for me!

    1. There’s no other way to describe it! It’s one of those tube yarns with loose fibers ‘blown’ into it. In this case, the tube is viscose (that’s the shiny) and the loose fibers are merino. It’s amazing stuff. Sadly, discontinued.

      I have a feeling the ‘lace’ part scared people away but at an open gauge or held double, it’s just right!
