Soon after posting Rhinebeck pics last week I got a few comments from people wondering what handknits I wore to this knitterly event. Some knits were totally new- some you have seen before...here's the recap.
This sweater you have obviously seen a few times in the past weeks. It is an original design that I finished the week before Rhinebeck and plan on writing up as a pattern.
The red cowl around my neck was my new Aravis Cowl that I did up in Malabrigo Ravelry Red. I wanted to bring out the red buttons of the cardigan. I actually picked the buttons for the cardigan before I even picked the yarn!
On my head I had my freshly blocked (actually went into the car wet) Selbu Modern. Selbu Modern was the very first pattern I 'favorited' on Ravelry and I'm so glad I finally got a chance to make one. The great news for you is that this is a free pattern by Kate Gagnon Osborn. If you haven't tried colorwork here's your chance!
My mittens have made an appearance here before- back in January when I completed them. The pattern is NHM #7 from Selbuvotter. You can find more info on my 'Girly Mitts' on Ravelry here.
The head band in the picture was my car project on the drive out to New York. Inspired by Anthropologie's Plaited Headwrap, it was a nice mindless knit to work on in a dark car. I'll have more details of how I made it soon.
I think that just about sums it up, folks! It was fun to attend a big knitting event where I felt comfortable (or required) wearing more than one handknit at a time. What's your go-to knit? Does something in your wardrobe get more use than other knits?
