It’s rainy in Boston, and that does not make me want to do anything! I don’t have any fun picture updates today, but I have a story!
So on Wednesday I went to see Hillary Clinton speak at Boston’s Symphony Hall, and on the way home I was knitting on the T. The girl sitting across from me looks at my knitting and exclaims “That’s really fine yarn!”. I thought it was really funny that this is how the conversation started because usually people are like- hey, what are you making? Or That’s really nice. She was a crocheter, and I let her feel the yarn before I had to hop off at my stop. I like meeting fiber friends on the T!
I had an uneventful trip to the Windsor Button this afternoon other than running into MEGHAN! That was exciting, but they didn’t have pebble, and I need just one more skein to finish my cowl! My cowl might be shorter than 24″. Neither Windsor Button or A Good Yarn carries the color. Boo me. The owner swore up and down that they never carried it at Windsor Button, but if I wanted five skeins she would order it for me. Five skeins?! Boo hiss. They do have the dyed blue sky alpaca cotton. The colors are so pretty! I also looked at sock yarn, but I’m not ready to commit. If I am making it for someone for Christmas then I think I need time to get prepared and I need to decide on a pattern before i buy. Definitely.
So because I’m getting so excited about Rhinebeck here’s some pictures from last year!
I’ll have more to report about my projects after my drive to Wellfleet tomorrow for the Oysterfest! I have to say that the cowl won’t be bad a little shorter than 24″. I hope my mother’s head isn’t that much larger than mine!
