rhinebeck!!!!


need i say more?




we're on our way! hope in the driver's seat, anmiryam in the back.



i love leaf peeping :-)



hope loves the cappuchino at monkey joe's ;-) michelle's not sure about hope.


a group of us stayed at the courtyard, part of the beekman arms and delamater inn.



my room.



first stop, the bakery on garden. yummy cookies :-)


friday night dinner at the sante fe in tivoli, deliscious shrimp tacos. excellent service.



new york sheep and wool, here we come!

adrianne, steph, hope, regan, michelle, me and anmiryam.


the yarn.

what i've been waiting for since last october - the artichoke man!


fried pickles, normally seen in the deep south.



lamb sausage.


fried dough. hey, i must have been hungry.


the blogger meet-up was insane. i spy margene and kim.

met up with judy and her sister linda, chris and cindy (but only for a second, whah). adrian, i wore my squirrel mittens, and monica in her gorgeous shawl.

not much of a haul.

more glass buttons from moving mud. guess i'll add them to the buttons i bought last year ;-0

hairsticks from moving mud, one for dd and one for ddil for christmas presents.



3 pair of golding walnut dpns, great points.












my only fiber purchase, 500 yds of merino tencel from briar rose, just what i've been looking for to knit swallowtail.

the very best part of course, spending time with friends. getting to meet my wing of the moth buddies.

and laurie and cassie, two online friends i couldn't wait to meet in person. i hope next time we see each other, i get more hugs and more time to talk :-)

sorry this took so long, having trouble uploading photos...

I had to click all the "shopping" links, didn't I? How cool is that to be able to buy needles according to whether they were sharp or blunt, slippery or not! Love the yarn and buttons. Gorgeous colors!
