I can’t believe a week and a half has alreayd gone by!- Rhinebeck was so much fun this year eventhough it was very cold and raining on Sunday.
Unlike years past (I’m looking at you ’07) It was perfect knitwear weather- perfect, I have to wear a hat, scarf, and mittens because it’s so cold weather.
On Saturday, Jessie wore her -“It’s been in a closet for a year because I can’t figure out what to do with the button issue” sweater. It’s Emerald by Amy Swenson btw.
And like every year- there was so much yarn.
I bought less than I usually do this year. A LOT less. As I’m sure you can tell by my blog, I’ve been knitting a lot less, and I haven’t knit up a lot of the yarn I bought last year! Of course, a lot less than I bought last year is still quite a lot of yarn!
This is us on Sunday- We both wore our February Lady Sweaters on Sunday. Jessie’s wearing a cabled hat that I made her, and an entrelac scaf she made a few years ago. I’m wearing my Rhinebeck scarf (the yarn was purchased at the first Rhinebeck Jessie and I went to together and completed for our second Rhinebeck), a Porom, and a Calorimetry that Jessie knitted for me a while back.
Enough already you say? What did I buy?
Dyed Leischester Longwool Locks from Hopping Acres– I’m planning on making some felted fingerless mitts with these on the edges. I’m pretty excited about it!
I LOVE everything Moving Mud makes and I was not allowed to buy anymore of their buttons because I have such a large stash of them at home, but when we were on our way out on Sunday I found a loophole! SHAWLPIN! Now I just have to knit a shawl for myself!
Very fun and successful Rhinebeck!! Can’t wait till next year! I’ll have to work harder to knit up all the yarn I have!!
