Rhinebeck

 

Well, that was quite a week. It was the last of the travel, plus a luxurious weekend of just sitting around, doing nothing. On purpose. It was magical, although I’m paying for it now in a week that seems just as busy as the travel ones. I’m still playing catch up, at school, on the blog, even in my crafting. I have a huge pile of mending on my kitchen table that I’m about ready to finally tackle.

Before I go do that, I’m going to finally post those Rhinebeck photos I keep promising! Its been over a week and a half now, so I’m a little late to the party, but they are just too fun to keep hidden on my computer. So, here they are (comments at the end):

The line for Jennie the Potter was enormous, almost as soon as the gates opened on Saturday. I stayed away from that one.

The Fibre Optic booth has some gorgeous samples. I missed it last year so it was first on my list this year.

I guess you can tell I love fall colours, huh? They have all gone now, in Ottawa at least, but I have these photos (and others) to tide me over until next year. Rhinebeck was an amazing weekend. So much of it is shopping but so much is also just being among other knitters, showing off their work and admiring all the same things you admire. It is a great feeling.

Speaking of shopping, one last photo to cap off this montage: my haul!

That’s 2,722 yards of oh-so-soft mine-all-mine yarn, plus two pairs of earrings and a small basket (not pictured). I totally blew my budget out of the water, and I don’t even care. It was all too beautiful to leave behind.

    Great photos, it was like being back there. You really captured the feel and atmosphere of the weekend. When was there ever NOT a line for apple cider donuts? Also, I never saw those baskets. I wouldn’t have bought one because I flew in, but it makes me wonder what else I missed!

      There was no line on both mornings, but only for a little while! The baskets were in the same aisle as Jennie the Potter, they are there every year and they are VERY popular. It is impossible to see everything at Rhinebeck, you always miss something!
