gone since the last post.
Ruth, Martha and I traveled to Rhinebeck and had a superwonderful
time. We stayed at an Airbnb that Martha secured for us on the
Rondout Creek. It is very wide and big for a creek !
Saturday afternoon we took a short walk from our house to the
We are still in our after-Rhinebeck glow in this picture:
our warmer jackets to the car. Sadly I only have one picture of the
show. This is the hills far away and the mountains beyond.
In person, it looked spectacular.
Our haul from the show:
The blue teal yarn is Tess, Mohair / Merino.
I am knitting my current sweater from the same yarn.
It is so wonderful, I wanted more.
The taupe yarn is cormo. I have wanted some for years...
now I have it! The little skein between is from Mt. Rutsen Studios,
based in Rhinebeck. It is so nice. A little field guide # 3 signed
by both Mason/Dixon sisters, and a festival bag.
A cup from her favorite potter, a blanket, the green yarn
is for a gansey sweater she is going to make, and some other
nice yarn, also a pattern.
Martha got a festival bag, yarn for two sweaters,
the fleece, a dishtowel, pattern and a new cup.
We all shopped at Jill Drapers on Saturday night.
Every year it seems to get better. So glad the weather
held out on Saturday...perfect.
Last time I had a small start on a pair of socks.
First one is done. Had a lot of car time and down time
at Rhinebeck to work on it.
I want to get the heel turned, and stitches picked up tonight
so it is in a brainless state to start the weekend.
I don't knit on it when I'm tired.
It's going much quicker since the sleeves are on waste yarn.
Ruth started a sweater when we got home.
Acer by Kristin Kapur. Yarn is Jill Draper makes stuff Empire.
Martha has wound her yarn, but no new knitting.
In other news:
This picture is from yesterday. Our little weeping cherry tree.
Interesting how it is turning.
This is the giant maple in the back yarn. Notice how green it still is.
Those leaves are hanging on for dear life!
Today its been extremely windy...extremely..and they are still
not coming off very fast.
Have a great week dear blog readers...until next week!
