..was one wonderful weekend. The kids and I arrived at my parents house in time for dinner Friday night. And Satruday morning, after my wonderful baby-sitter came over Mom and I headed off. After getting lost trying to follow RR’s shortcut, Mom was navigating that’ll never happen again! (Sorry Mom! Love you!) We arrived at Rhinebeck a little late, but boy was it a nice day
Mom and I did a little shopping, we stopped at the Fold’s booth. After saying “I just want to look at the coloways” I held these in my hot little hands
Sock that Rock lightweight in Chickabiddy and mediumweight in Azure Malachite. (I’ve been oogling this coloway for 2 years now on the Fold’s site.) We walked around for a little bit and then I bought more (I say more because I bought 2 hanks last year for a pair of socks for Dad) of this lovely merino from Greenwood Hill Farm to make twist from Chicknits. (but with the long collar not the hood.)
After it hangs out for a bit in a plastic bag with some lavender. It smells like cedar! Anyone have any hints to help remove that smell? Its still the loveliest, smoosiest, softest merino ever! Mom and I then met up with Adelle, P-la, Petra, Valerie, and I can’t remember her name! (I’m so sorry!)
(P-la, Valerie, Petra, me, and Adelle) Valerie gave me my prize for winning her contest on yarn4socks’s blog. The blogger meetup was crazy! Photo’s are on my flickr set, I have to get going and help Mike with dinner. Later Dad came over and I tried to find yarn for a sweater for Allysa
Twisted by Blue Moon, in Puck’s Mischief. I can’t believe they had anything left at 4! Here is the obligatory photo of the haul
I still can’t believe that I didn’t buy more! It was a lovely trip, and I can’t wait to go again next year.
It looks so fun! Lucky girl.
What a fun day you had! The yarns look positively yummy…..I’m so jealous.
Glad you had fun, love that STR even thought the Fold booth is totally out of control!!
You are so lucky to have gone. I hope to go someday, maybe next year! Love all of your yarn!
I had a great weekend with you and the kids. And I really don’t like to navigate and it won’t hurt my feelings if we use a GPS next year. (Actually I want (need) a GPS for Christmas hint, hint, hint.)
Love you all.
So, are you on a yarn diet? I expected you would come home with a U-Haul of stuff. The same thing happened to me when I went to MS&W this year. I thought I had a huge haul. I sure had a credit card bill that was proof I had done some damage, but when I looked at what I bought, it didn’t seem like very much! I really wish I had been able to go to Rhinebeck, but I had to work. Maybe next year!
It was great seeing you and looks like you took home some beautiful yarns!
Seriously, that’s all you bought?? Girl! I need to show you how to shop!
Sounds like a great day!
You came home with some pretty stash enhancement.
I love P-la’s shirt 🙂
I love that merino. I’m a sucker for simple yarns.
