Rhinebeck or Bust Capelet
The question was innocent enough: “What’s everyone knitting for Rhinebeck?” Knitting? For Rhinebeck? Of course—why did I think of that? It’s a fiber festival, after all. But what to knit, especially for an outdoor festival in the northeast in mid-October, when temperatures can range from the 30s to the 80s…sometimes all in the same day?
After some thought, some swatching, and a lot of trial and error, I came up with a capelet, hat, and wrister set that should serve me in cool afternoons at the fairgrounds or cold nights out with the girls.
