I try (and usually succeed) to have a new finished piece for Rhinebeck.
This year, it's Maxfield. I fell in love with this pattern as soon as it was released but didn't have stash yarn to make it, so I put it in my queue and tried to forget about it.
I kept thinking about it.
Plotted yarn ideas (the called for yarn had alpaca and it bothers me so I needed a substitution).
Caved and asked Kim at Indigodragonfly to dye me something spectacular to make it.
Polwarth/Silk to the rescue.
The main colour is a bluer Kathleen Turner Overdrive and the variegated is my namesake yarn, Paging Dr. Smartass.
It's a fun knit and I'm loving it. Here's the back and sleeves.
Only the fronts to go. Should be done in time for the trip. I've been blocking and seaming as I go. Don't want to have to do that one the road.
