Rhinebeck Re-Entry

There's always a couple days of worthlessness whenever I return from Rhinebeck. This year is no exception, made worse by the virus that I still can't kick. I'm exhausted, I hurt everywhere and I just want to sleep. To say that I did too much isn't an exaggeration.

I didn't do too much damage on the wallet. Here's what I got:

Laceweight 55%/45% Silk & Yak (edited- I thought it was merino and yak. It's silk) from Skaska Designs. Yum!
Alice totally inspires me everytime I see her, never mind when she knits. I keep saying no more laceweight, then we go to these things and she lights up and I buy stuff. I was glad that I got this when I did though, it was the second to last skein.

6 Skeins of wool fromWild Apple Hill Farm- enough to make that cool Drops sweater that everyone made last year.

Cormo spinning fiber from Foxhill Farms.

And some corriedale/angelina fiber from Carolina Homespun.

I got the obligitory Christmas ornaments, which I get from every trip I take throughout the year. No photos, though.

That's it.

I did alot of eating, including an amazing juicy apple. Oh, and two whoopie pies, an apple crisp, an apple cider donut, a pumpkin donut, and filet mignon.

So much for that diet, eh?

One of the best parts of the trip was seeing one of Rebecca's patterns out in the wild, at a random vendor's pattern pole. Look at how happy she looks!

It was a great weekend away. I got to see some friends, eat like there's no tomorrow and buy fiber- what could be better?

I missed the pumpkin donuts. I'll be looking for some next year. You bought yourself some good stuff.

Thanks for the info on the hook. I knew it had to have an important use in spinning or weaving . . . but that name!

Feel better.

Too bad I didn't run into you at Rhinebeck. It was a fabulous weekend. I bought some of that Wild Apple yarn too. Had some chocolate creme brulee, french artichokes, and maple syrup cotton candy. Yum

Great stuff! Alice is quite the lace (and spinning) enabler, isn't she :) And my, Rebecca does look excited - very cool! Mmm... the food sounds tasty :) (and you got a lot of walking in, right?)

I hope you get over your virus soon...
