Oh knitting. You and I are having a second fifth another honeymoon, a rebirth of our love. Sometimes you just need to take a little time alone together to rekindle the spark, and I’m sure glad we did.

I remember all the reasons that I love you. Mostly it’s the wonderful purpose and distraction you offer from the slog of daily life, like a hot and secret affair you light up the corners of my mind during the dingy tasks of diaper changing or dish washing, both seemingly endless, yet you are my reward to finish the cleaning, the folding, the chores… you are waiting for me in the quiet moments of the day, offering the promise of something beautiful all to myself.

Let me introduce you to my first Rhinebeck sweater (not for my first Rhinebeck, just the first time I’ve ever been able to knit a sweater for it).

Knit from the gorgeous and luxurious Sundara Sport Merino, in the limited edition colorway Bold Intentions:

She is raveled here.

    Hi there! You’re starts of your Gathered Pullover are great. Nice colorway and congrats on the scoring enough for a sweater. How did your swatch fair post wash?

  2. Thanks! Yeah, I got super lucky during a LE posting and I fully attribute it to being my birthday on the day I tried for it. ;)

    My swatch grew post washing, but that’s what I wanted it to do, so that was good. Pre-wash the gauge was too tight, and it grew to the perfect size. I’m just hoping that’s the way it will work on the entire sweater!
