Road to Rhinebeck

Hey Everyone!

Sorry this post is a bit late, I super busy Wednesday, and then AT&T was a butt and I had no data pretty much until I had to leave for work at 9 o’clock at night.

Tuesday evening I finished up the “Road to Rhinebeck” socks I had been working on. I honestly love how they turned out and they are the favorite pair I have worked on lately. Then again it seems like whenever I work on an autumn colored / inspired pair of socks, I love them. Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival is in October so this sock set is definitely autumn inspired.

This was in fact a sock set, so there was a main hank and an mini hank of the contrast.

While Rhinebeck has been Goals for a while, this sock set really makes me want to go, and it is something I am going to try to make happen in 2023. It just isn’t going to work out this year due to what I have had going on and dealing with my health this year.

Yesterday, I took the time and washed the socks I had completed and stuck in my hamper for hand knit socks. I prefer to hand wash my hand knit socks and put them on the drying rack since we don’t have a drying line outside at the new house. The warmer weather makes me more inclined to wash socks since they will dry quicker. Some day I would love to have a wood stove or natural gas stove and be able to dry them in front of that in the colder months. Especially after having worn them.
