|Poor Pretty Cymantha with this fat girl next to her!|
Saturday was Rhinebeck. I absolutely loved being surrounded by knitters, and absolutely hated it. Many were the kindest people you were ever going to meet, marveled over each others sweaters and purchases. Others were part of a pushy mob that had crazed looks in their eyes over wool. One of the lines, for the Sanguine Gryphon booth, was 2 hours long. They had their own porta potty. I am swearing now--I will NEVER EVER EVER need yarn that bad. EVER.
It was really nice. I got to meet Thora's knitting group friends at an impromptu knit night at her friend Candace's house. Good food, good fun--it was nice to just relax and knit and laugh.
Thora is sending my yarn home--I didn't purchase that much, but she went stash diving and sent me home with a bunch of beautiful stuff from her stash. So now that the sweater is done, what next? Well--I'm working on a BEAUTIFUL sock. It's the Angel's Rest pattern from Fiber Trends Peak Experience leaflette. In a gorgeous Opal green and white crocodile that Thora gave me. Love!!!
