The Answer Everyone Wants to Know

What does everyone want to know? What was your haul at Rhinebeck of course!

I walked away pretty light this year. I purchased an alligator scarf kit from Morehouse and 5 skeins of natural colored wool from Maple Creek Farms.

maple creek yarn

The alligator was cast on immediately after walking in the door on Saturday night. It's been a really fun knit so far. So simple, yet so clever!


Slip Stitch Jacket

I did manage to finish my slip stitch jacket (well, it just needs hooks), but it was a bit too warm to wear so it stayed home. Grannie #2 filled in instead. And speaking of the slip stitch jacket, can you believe I had to make one more emergency trip to Knitty City on Thursday to finish it up! So the grand total was 4 extra skeins! How could this be considering I was right on gauge? I'm not quite sure. Maybe the company might be able to help me out on that one.

Ooh, that natural colored wool looks very nice... What a great find :)
I'm sure you'll get to wear your super soft slip stitch jacket once the weather cools down. (If it ever does). In the meantime, your Grannie #2 looked very pretty.

Wow, you're a speedy knitter. Look at how much progress you've already got done on the scarf!

And the slip stitch jacket is gorgeous! Sorry it was too warm to wear.

I so had my eye on that scarf at morehouse, it is tres cool :) Shame it was too warm for the slip stitch jacket, not long before it will be cool enough though...

I loved the alligator scarf so much. I'm knitting it vicariously through others since I just couldn't justify it this time.

the jacket is totally cool! seems like you finished it really fast, too. crazy about the 4 extra skeins needed.

so, i am one front panel short of finishing the slip stitch jacket. i am right on gauge, too, and so far i am two and a half extra skeins in! i thought it was just me. also, any tips for the reversal of the front panel? i was frustrated that, with all the short rows, they wouldn't write that out for me. and now i have to do it. and i'm almost ready to punch teva durham in the face.
