Rhinebeck

Published by at 5:45 pm under festivals

Wow, has it really been a month and a half since I last posted? Apparently so. I swear I was busy. Too busy, perhaps — my job keeps me pretty occupied. I’ve finally settled in and can devote brain space to things like knitting and designing and blogging. And..going to RHINEBECK.

I didn’t take a lot of pictures; I was too busy yakking with people and wandering around and buying ALL THE YARN. So were a lot of other people. This was the line at the Sanguine Gryphon booth:

We poked fun at signs:

and went to the Ravelry meetup on Saturday:

We knit and spun in a brewpub in Kingston:

and for the first time ever I had a knitted garment (not just an accessory) to wear this year.

The fact that I seamed it at 1 am Saturday and had to get help weaving in ends on Sunday morning while I hopped in the shower is inconsequential. Achievement Rhinebeck Sweater: Unlocked.

We rented a house this year and packed it full of awesome ladies:

and they were a huge part of why this weekend was so, so excellent. I am already looking forward to next year, but I supposed I should start knitting now, because. Well.

Rhinebeck Stash

I had a great time. So did my stash.

    Your wrap-up makes me so happy! Almost as good as being there. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it next year, since we’ll be on the east coast and all… 😀
