Whirlwind

What a whirlwind of a the last ten days has been! So much has happened that I am afraid this post will have to consist of photos with captions because if I told you everything it would take longer than you want to be here for. I will start with Rhinebeck, also known as the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. This year was more fun than ever for me. The fall leaves were beautiful.

We had a Knitspot swap this year in which everyone knit a scarf or shawl for someone in the group. Erica knit me this wonderfully warm and soft caravan scarf in just the right color for me.

I knit almost the same color Longshadows scarf for Judi.

It was really fun to see everyone’s gifts and the thought that went into them. Here we are all modeling our wonderful gifts.

Then, I had a super fun meetup with Thea Colman, also known as Baby Cocktails. We had a great time talking knitting and sweaters and yarn.

This year, I really enjoyed seeing my knitting friends more than the shopping. Although, I did manage to find a few goodies to bring back home with me.

When Rhinebeck was over, the fun went on at Knitspot’s Rhinebeck After Party. I was so busy and had so much fun there that I have no pictures. What I can show you is the yarn I brought home with me. There’s enough here for a sweater and several other things.

And the fun didn’t stop there! The husband surprised us by taking the entire week off and whisking us away for a grand few days in New York City!

We ate a lot.

And I even bought a little more yarn.

We were spoiled for sure and had enough fun to last us quite awhile. Now that we are back, we are getting ourselves re-organized. The first thing was to re-open the etsy shop with stitch markers with a post Rhinebeck sale. Everything in the shop is 20% off with coupon code RB2014SALE until November 4. We will be adding some new sets later today and tomorrow. Today’s sets have a bonus owl.

  1. Loved reading your post about your trip Carie. I recognise the Titus yarn, it comes from Baa Ram Ewe in Yorkshire which is where I am on holiday right now.

  2. Those stitch markers are too cute.

  3. So, SO jealous 😉 Now to relax and knit a little!
