Drive-By Fruiting


Or the quickest posting I can do – while laundering, binding off, packing and more laundering.  But one thing will be packed with me on the trip to Rhinebeck this weekend….

Hey Teach is done!  I think this is the fastest knit in the records of knitting – had I known it would be this fast, I would have finished it three weeks ago when I actually started it.  As it was, after having about 2 inches done on the back, I took this to group on Saturday, proceeded to add quite a bit to the back, finished it that night and just whipped through the fronts and sleeves.  I actually finished a sleeve on my fifteen minute break at work today – and I’m not spouting about my quickness as a knitter.  This pattern is easy, straightforward and super fast.  I did a few mods – a little longer in the breasticle area, and a little longer on the sleeves and I opted for the three buttons on the top instead of down the length of the button band.  I highly recommend this cute cardy!

And – ta da!  The winner of the 2000th comment contest is……….Turtle!  I’ll be gathering the goodies – maybe something from Rhinebeck if I can find what I’m looking for and getting that out to her next week. Thank you for all your comments and especially for reading!

Tomorrow is my Friday at work – and we are planning on leaving here tomorrow afternoon and heading upstate.  A nice little weekend getaway for us since Monday is our 24th Anniversary – I swear I don’t feel old enough to be married that long and I know I don’t act old enough, but it’s been the best 24 years and I can honestly say – He’s my favorite person.   Who else would consider going to a Sheep and Wool festival with his wife fun?

Have a Great Weekend!!!
