P.S. New ‘like’ button below each blog post! Just in case you don’t feel like leaving a comment :)

what I bought

I didn’t buy a lot of stuff at Rhinebeck this year, because the budget (and space) is tight, plus we traveled with just carry on luggage! I didn’t even buy any fiber, which is a bit weird since it was the only thing I had on my list. Hm.

wool fabric, project bag

Two fat quarters of wool herringbone, and a Rhinebeck project bag.

greenwood hill merino

DK weight from Greenwood Hill Merino, which I always ogle!

buttons

Beautiful buttons from the inimitable Jennie the potter – I love the gingko leaves.

green mountain spinnery sock yarn

A skein of squishy, bouncy sock yarn from Green Mountain Spinnery.

coffee scoop

A coffee scoop from Chester P. Basil’s. I want one of everything from them!

We do a secret gift exchange at the Rhinebeck house, and I received this pretty half apron from Christina! Thank you lovely lady!

Rhinebeck, the weekend

There’s just nothing else like it. The yarn, the animals, the fall colours – the only thing that doesn’t agree with me is the crowds! But I did get to see lots of people I know “from the internet” as well as a few sweaters from my patterns in the wild, which is always a thrill. If the grounds look empty in these, it’s just because they’re from first thing on Saturday morning!
