Pattern Release: Ellipses Mittens

My Rhinebeck Sweater

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.

I love that pattern. It is a sweater worthy of Rhinebeck and Indigo Dragonfly yarn. I especially enjoy the use of your namesake yarn!

That is beyond gorgeous! I wish I was going to Rhinebeck this year. You have a fantastic sweater to show off. That one is going in my queue.

I'm starting my Rhinebeck sweater tomorrow >.<
