If there’s one thing business travel is good for, it’s knitting.
All that time in the airport, these days with an operating systems textbook open on my lap, makes my fingers positively itch. It’s no wonder that I can crank through the back of a sweater quickly!
This is the first of my (2? 3?) Rhinebeck sweaters for the year. I’m calling it “Ayana” and it’s knit in Berroco’s utterly fabulous Ultra Alpaca. I’ve used this yarn for several projects, and am pleased as punch with how it wears and holds up over time. It’s my go-to yarn for kid sweaters, me sweaters, hats, anything. Choosing a color is always a difficult task for me, but this time I wound up with “Beet Root”.
In the shade, it looks like a lovely but fairly standard purple. (Purple is my color this fall, apparently.) In the sunlight, though, these lovely red/pink undertones come out and it looks for all the world like a freshly-cut beet. I am utterly head over heels in love with it and can’t wait to wear the thing.
Will you be at Rhinebeck? (Only 39 days to go!) What will you be wearing, and will you be playing Rhinebeck Bingo?
