Rhinebeck Fever

Last night at MY SnB, Nancy wanted to know if I have a new Rhinebeck sweater. My external reply: Uh, noooo.... My internal thought process:

new sweater!

I'm sure knitters will understand that, and what happened next.

When I got home, I pondered how to make a sweater in one week. I contemplated finishing a UFO from Norovember 2007, Rosedale. (When last seen, Rosedale was tucked under the bed in the guest room to keep her out of the holiday frazzle. Alas, out of sight, out of mind.) But one year later I no longer like Rosedale's corrugated ribbing, so —

Rewound Kureyon

(A leaf fell into frame while I was snapping pix outdoors. It's warm and sunny today!)

Now I'm knitting feverishly on Cardigan with Garter-Stitch Trim by Linda Daniels (in Knitter's Stash). Except I tried and hated the garter stitch trim and substituted seed stitch.

Seedy cardi

Let's see... finish the back today, the front over the weekend, the sleeves by Wednesday, block on Thursday, seam on Friday... a cardi in one week is well within the realm of possibility [g].

LMAO. I can totally relate. I am 2/3 of a sleeve, hood and button band away from my first sweater and first Rhinebeck project.

I wish you luck. May God send you a favorable wind. ~ksp

Wow - I never knew what an inspirational force I could be!!!

I have a hibernating cardigan also - wonder if I can finish Sitcom Chic by next Sunday?

You can do it! Are you going on Saturday or Sunday or both? I was too whooped after work to go to SnB. I hibernated on the sofa with Mr. Greenjeans.
