Beat the Clock

I bought the book this weekend and have been glancing through it when I am not knitting.

Every year knitters head to Rhinebeck, New York to attend the New York Sheep and Wool Festival . It has been a tradition that on an annual basis that a few months before the event in October they knit a sweater so that they can wear it with pride at the festival.

Well I am not going to Rhinebeck this year so I decided to put my own twist on destination knitting and create a new challenge for my trip to Scotland( the sweater challenge is just not going to happen). So I decided to put my own twist on destination knitting and give myself a new challenge.  I am going to give it my all to knit a pattern from some Scottish designers I might be meeting or have patterns in my queue. I think I have about 5 set up in my queue currently and I plan on bringing my Saudade by Ysolda Teague because I love it so much. I plan on taking photos of the knitwear in Scotland with the aim of using its scenery as a backdrop for my photographs.

So here are the patterns currently making the cut for the trip:

  1. The Tortoise and the Hare Gauntlets by Kate Davies
  2. The Good Years Hat by Donna Smith
  3. The Flora Mitts by Ella Gordon
  4. Possible others include Scallafield by Hazel Tindal, Neep Heid by Kate Davies, or Bousta Beanie by Gudrun Johnnson

One thought on “Beat the Clock

  1. I love all your patterns you have picked a to take on your trip. Some of them I have in my queue.

    Can’t wait for you trip so I can see Scotland too!
