A Rhinebeck Confession


I know ...I know...I said I wouldn't buy anything at Rhinebeck!!! I said I would only indulge in the foods. But I couldn't help it. Carol M, Marva, Muriel and Sandy encouraged me. Richard showed me his purple and blue fine Rambouillet and silk so I had to buy some :) And Judy showed me her Ellen's Half Pint Farm sock yarn before the trip to Rhinebeck.....

Below is a pic of the finished Fetching wristers. I will make changes to the next pair. I will lengthen the hand and use a regular cast off instead of the picot cast off in the pattern.



Isn't this bootie darling...made with leftover sock yarn using the Pattern a Day 2006 calendar baby bootie pattern.

Didn't you know you could be excommunicated from the guild if you went to Rhinebeck without buying something knitting-related? Luckily you gave in to common sense!

Some of Ellen's sock yarn followed me home too!

Who could pass up that yarn? Love your wristers, and the bootie.

Thank you so much for the pattern link. I lost my bingo card with all the notes and I could not for the life of me remember who was what, but I do remember your scarf :-) It was great meeting you.

I think Kristen's right, there's a law. Must buy at Rhinebeck!

You must have had a great time at Rhinebeck! Food!? Glad you couldn't help it...love the bootie & wristers, and all that gorgeous yarn! I like the colors you are indulging in.

You were very strong to have only come home with that wee bit of fiber. Lovely choices. I wanted to reach my hand in and squeeze that roving...where did you get Rambo and silk??
