I'm going to the New York State Sheep & Wool Festival in 9 days... also called Rhinebeck. It's the biggest knittery-spinnery event in the US. There is a sort of tradition to knit (and spin!) a sweater to wear at Rhinebeck. With this being my first and possibly only trip to knitter's Mecca, I figured I had to do it right. I spun the yarn for the yoke, designed the pattern, and knit it up. I feel incredibly bad ass.
I'll get buttons for it tonight and will be parading my bad self at Rhinebeck. If you're there, please come say hello! Looking forward to meeting awesome peeps!
