I’ve been going on and on about making Exeter my dream Rhinebeck sweater (though I’m positive I won’t have time to finish it). But after seeing the Benton that Jen at Grainline Studio made has really got me craving this beautiful sweater. It’s so simple yet really striking and I love how easy it is to wear. Perfect addition to my uniform of skinny jeans/button down/boots. The full post on Jen’s sweater is here. God, she’s talented!

>> A crocheted bowl of Ramen with video instructions.

>>  Jon really wants to get a drone. He’s kind of obsessed with the idea which has me rolling my eyes a lot. I hate to say “boys and their toys” (girls like gizmos, too!) but mine seems to REALLY like the gadgets. This video of a ram vs. a drone feels very close to my heart right now.

>> Tips on how to weave in your ends. I’ve been knitting for 10 years and I’m still not happy with my finishing techniques. These photos are going to be very helpful!

>> Amy’s got a GREAT post about how to choose your first sweater pattern. Choosing to tackle your first sweater is a big leap and it can be very daunting. This is solid advice!

>> Be sure to enter the Kettle Yarn Co giveaway! You can win five skeins of Wimbledon (which would put your well on your way to making your own Creamsicle)!

>> The cutest Vince star ever is Winter the lamb.

>>This New York Times article stirred things up on Twitter yesterday. I like Josh’s work a lot and it was great to hear more about his work at Fashion Week. It’s just that tired grandma comparison that really gets knitters upset!

So much knitting to do this week! Sweater season is almost upon us! What do you have on the needles?

    OMG, Ram vs Drone is hilarious! Ram doesn’t even stop chewing shrubs.

    I cast on the Brooklyn Tweed Umaro throw blanket this week and a Susan B Andersen giraffe toy. And I’m in a state of constant blocking of baby things while procrastinating seaming the trim to a baby blanket that I finished in June. Oy! No sweaters for the time being.

      Yay! Baby stuff is so fun! Procrastinate on!

    That Benton sweater is too dreamy! I love it! I’m working on a Honey Cardigan (by Veera Valimaki). I started it two years ago with yarn I bought four years ago, yikes! I just have sleeves and i-cord binding to do and it will be done… the benefit of finishing projects you’ve already started! But I’m looking forward to starting in on something completely new!

      Wow good for you working on those UFOs! I am SO BAD at finishing things that I put aside for a long time.
