Rhinebeck and other sweaters

Isn’t one of the best things about Autumn that it’s sweater weather? I always enjoy seeing knitters around the world wearing my designs, and this enjoyment often comes to a kind of peak around this time of year, when a veritable slew of amazing projects begin to appear on Instagram and Ravelry. I’ve never been to Rhinebeck (perhaps one day?) but whether or not one attends the festival itself, or experiences it (as I do) vicariously online, the fact that this is a time of year when all the knitters suddenly seem to be wearing all the knits is undeniable. I thought you’d like to see some beautiful projects I’ve been admiring on Instagram and Ravelry over the past few weeks.

Some fabulous St Catherine’s cardigans have been completed recently – such as these striped versions by Antje and / Iris

and these single-shade versions by / Christina and Renata

The soft pinks and blues of Cia’s Myrtle and Louise-Ann’s Neepheid both recently caught my eye . . .

. . . and Hanna’s eye was certainly caught by the happy sight of her man wearing the Machrihanish she’d knitted for him around the streets of Cambridge.

Iris’s talented dad, wonderhubbyknits, knitted her a Carbeth pullover . . .

– just one of many wonderful Carbeths which have recently been completed – such as these

by Julie





and Julia

It’s definitely a time of year for getting outdoors in your knits – here’s Angela wearing her Còinneach out on the Pennine Way

and Catherine took her recently completed Rowchoish down for a walk along the shore at St Ives.

Rhinebeck often marks the unofficial deadline for completion of some truly epic knits – among which you might definitely count my Strathendrick design. It’s one of my favourite recent patterns, and seeing knitters in this sweater makes me particularly happy. Here’s . . .



And Sharon all looking fabulous in their Strathendricks!

Finally, here are some beautiful projects pictured at Rhinebeck itself last weekend.

Carol and Becca in matching Epistrophy cardigans, knitted from Carol’s wool.

Courtney in a beautiful Còinneach

and finally Rue, who knit not one, but two amazing Oa hoodies that were worn at Rhinebeck!

I really enjoy your projects popping up on Instagram so if you’d like to share them with me, just use the hashtags #katedavies or #katedaviesdesigns, and I’ll be sure to see them.

Happy autumn knitting, everyone! x
