I'm a Square!

Rheinbeck is Tomorrow! I wanted to let you know that I may be a square on your blogger bingo card. I will be there with the hubby, and another couple. She knits, but I think he is afraid of sheep. I think we can sway him into the allure of fiber festivals...what do you all think?

I found a new favorite etsy shop, Moon Rover. Lacey's handdyed/handspun merino is beautiful and so squishy! I received my custom order that will become a BSJ for my college roomie's baby to be. Niblet even likes it...
Well, ok... Niblet also likes needles...

I have also been knitting. Finally a photo...although crappy quality. I've been working on the Textured Tunic from Fitted Knits. I'm using Elsebeth Lavold Silky Tweed on 7s. The gauge was so off for this yarn that I followed the cast on and raglan increases for the Boatneck Bluebell pattern. I made quite a lot of mods so far, including a hemmed neckline, longer torso, but shorter "tunic-y" section...

I'm working on the sleeves now, and I'm taking suggestions - should I make long, belled sleeves (since this is a tunic), or short sleeves that end after the 5" of box stitch (right above the elbow)? HELP!

Thats it for today's update...See you at Rheinbeck!!!


  1. See you at Rhinebeck! You're on my card! I really like your tunic. I vote for short sleeves.

  2. oh, i'm going on sunday this year, but have a blast!
    i'm so jealous that you are making that sweater -- i've been itching to. i say bell sleeves.

  3. i started that sweater i swear 4 times i just couldn't get the gauge or stitch number correct so i did the same thing as u with the increases and such. how did it come out in the end. i loved the way it looked so much i just couldn't give up on it.
