Man, I love Rhinebeck weekend. There is just no better time to commune with online knitterly people than at the New York Sheep & Wool festival. The leaves are turning, the weather is cooler and there is so much wool around you’re almost warm by osmosis.
I missed seeing a few people (I’m looking at you, Heather!) but we had plenty of friends cruise by to say hi and get their books signed. We giggled and caused a few raucuses as we seem to do everywhere. One woman saw Stitchy and shouted, “STITCHY! I LOVE MOOSE KNUCKLE!” which caused the more proper folks at the Melanie Falick table to gasp. We had a great time though even though most of our neighbours were slightly more demure.
Some folks brought their books with them. Karen in particular matched the book perfectly. I love purple and orange together something fierce:
We hit the Ravelry meetup on Saturday and ran across Thea of Baby Cocktails sporting her newly released pattern, Collins. (The green one is Collins, Erin is wearing Calvados, also a Baby Cocktails original)
And Pam wore her finished Cheeky Hot Pants: (designed by Marnie MacLean)
See? Doesn’t that look like heaps of fun? You should come next year. Stop thinking about it, just put it on the calendar!
