Please pardon the photo quality… I forgot to bring the big camera and was stuck with my phone. This post is going to be somewhat photo-heavy, since I did actually take pictures this year.

I started a sock. Spud & Chloe Fine in Teal on 2.5mm needles. Plain 3x2 rib.

I started a sock the night before we left for Rhinebeck. Rob mentioned that he really liked the cursed socks I made him (you remember the cursed socks, don’t you?) The background is the cash register lineup for the Miss Babs Booth (which is INSIDE the building!!!). I had a bit of knitting time while waiting for Krystal and Elizabeth to pay šŸ™‚

This lady was, for some reason, dressed like a daffodil, and I thought she was fabulous!

A small part of the Ravelry/LSG meetup and the beginnings of the podcaster meetup. I knew no one. Sue, however, held court with her podcaster buddies :)

Somehow I ended up rescuing Sue from this little guy (he had attached himself to her shawl). Zachary, this picture is solely for you.

If you ever want some inexpensive, but high-quality fiber, Go to Little Barn. His prices are AMAZING and he's awesome.

I couldn't even come close to capturing the glory of the clouds as we left the first afternoon.

My last "random" photo, and I didn't even realize my friend Amanda (whom we did NOT SEE while at Rhinebeck) was in the picture!!!!

First half of my haul - this is the colourful part!

The second half of what I brought home. You can see why I separated them? Almost ALL of this came from Little Barn (the big pile of fluff on the left is the exception - that was from Foxfire Fibers and Design).

We had dinner at the fantastic Joshua's in Woodstock. If you can't find it, just look for the big lit-up oak tree with the bench around it!

Four very tired and very satisfied knitters. From L-R, Sue, Elizabeth, Krystal and me! This was when we got in the car to head home.

All in all, we had a fantastic weekend, we all brought home lots of goodies, although most of them were a bit more restrained than I was – I go for specific things, such as inexpensive spinning fiber. We now have a standing booking at our cabin (The Slide cabin at Simpler Times Cabins), so that’s likely where we’ll stay from now on. We also attended the Indie Trunk Show at a hotel in Kingston the night before the festival, but we were tired, and it was WAY over-crowded, and no pictures were taken.
