So, you were all looking for a Rhinebeck wrap-up, right? Here's the quick version: I went, I saw friends, had drinks, bought yarn, and came home. Last year, I was all about the fiber buying, as I had a new wheel at the time. This year, it was about seeing friends and perhaps making a few new ones.

I had a fabulous time. And now I'm paying the price ...

365.25: Another cuppa (by aswim in knits)

... home sick with a cup of tea.

Thank goodness for Flickr, Ravelry, and Bloglines to keep me amused, because daytime television is crap.

Oh, and what did I buy? Not much! I'm fairly restrained at festivals.

These skeins from Zeilinger's are destined to be a stranded yoke sweater, along with another darker color for the body.

I also got a single skein of some yummy, squishy soft merino from Punta Yarns:

And some sheep:

Also, although not shown, 4 ounces of natural colored merino roving to practice woolen-style drafting.

Now, back to loafing on the couch. I think it's time for another cup of tea.

  • That Punta yarn is luminescent. Hope you're feeling better! I had this at the beginning of the week but am feeling mostly better now. I would marry Zicam if I could.

  • Sheep and yarn, good times. Sorry you're sick though. Eat lots of garlic and chilies. It helps.

  • Restrained, well chosen, the good plans.

    I got the virus at SOAR. It lasted 17 days. *sigh* Hope you feel better soon.

  • It was great to see you, however briefly. I think I will be ready to return the you-know-what soon.

    (I did not do so well on the self-restraint front. The first thing we discovered on arrival was that there was plenty of STR left in good colors. Need I say more.)
