Not Rhinebeck

Oct 19

My social media feeds are full of Rhinebeck prep. Everyone is getting excited for New York Sheep and Wool with good reason. It is a fabulous event! A Rhinebeck trip is not in the cards this year for a number of reasons. I’ll probably join in on #notrhinebeck this weekend!

Rhinebeck!

I tried to remember what my first Rhinebeck yarn was. Then remembered, I blogged about my purchases!  Hope Spinnery yarn was given away, Jaime Harmon yarn was knit into a cowl, that Jennie the Potter mug was injured in an accident and glued together again that I’m now afraid to use. I should keep it out on my desk as a decoration, it’s so pretty! That cake of March Hare? It’s still caked and mostly all there. Part of the yarn was knit into a little dragon at the Vogue Knitting Live event I attended in January 2016. I went looking for the yarn, found the dragon, and he’s finished!

Finished Wee Dragon

Thank you to the finishing fairies! I do not remember finishing him up and the Ravelry page was not updated either. This Little Dragon is a Susan B. Anderson pattern, very cute and a little fiddly. Like most fiddly bits, it’s worth it. Using sock yarn resulted in a truly wee dragon – he’s slightly taller than the yarn cake! I would be curious to work him up using a worsted weight yarn. I do wish I had used polybeads or something to give him some weight on the bottom, he’s light and floppy!

I do like that I have most of the yarn cake to use. Perhaps a cast-on of something this weekend is in order.
