Knit wise... The herringbone raglan...

The NY Sheep and Wool festival is next weekend! Let joy be unconfined! :)

The knitting for this sweater was finished a while ago. It was interrupted several times. It was also almost entirely knit on the subway. I think I finished the sleeves a couple of weeks ago.

I am hoping to wear it to Rhinebeck next Saturday so this weekend is construction time. This evening I attached the front and back to each other and got one sleeve attached. Tomorrow I will attach the other sleeve, close the sleeves' undersides, and then knit the collar.

I'm very excited about the festival. Reserved an Amtrak ticket for next Saturday. My focus this year will be on 1) obtaining some wool for the harvest rug I started this summer, 2) obtaining some roving from Spinner's Hill, 3) visiting, hugging and enjoying the company of sheep, 4) fresh air and colorful leaves, 5) Ooohing and Aaahing over everything, 6) maybe picking up something a little special--maybe a spindle, don't know yet. Looking forward to it! :)


  1. Trying not to be GREEN with envy that you're getting to go to Rhinebeck.
    I hope you have success in finding everything you want and need even that special something that you didn't know you needed.
    Give a sheep a hug for us : )
    Hoping that some year soon we'll be able to make the trek to see the Festival in person.

  2. Thanks jak. I'll take pics and post them. It would be nice to meet up there some year!

  3. I think that's a wonderful idea, Bernard. Imagine, meeting at such a place as the Fleece Festival. What a treat that would be : )
    We'll work on that............... : )
