here goes nothing!
I was so excited to get to rhinebeck:
That's my excited face. I'm wearing the earrings I got from last year!
that is apple crisp. its delicious. it doesn't look it, but it smelled and tasted delicoius. we each had like 4 cups of apple cider too.
Now onto the yarn I bought. I bought ALL bulky, ALL handspun or hand dyed. I can get machine spun any day but its rare I get to buy from local farms that card/dye/spin their own stuff, so I did it as frequently as possible. I think I was completely successful in ALL of my purchases but I didn't look into each purchase super carefully.
I got roving! and a drop spindle. This is from the Sheep Shed at Mountain View Farm
Its so beautiful!
This is from the Hudson Valley Sheep and Wool Company. I bought four skeins for a cardigan/sweater type thing.
I got this for Boyfriend, two skiens. It has a bit of green in it too that did not photograph well.
I got this little bundle from This and That Farm
I got this from a woman who uses sea water and the sun to dye her yarn. She's from Maine but her company slips my mind right now and I'm being a lazy pain the butt.
This is from Kid Hollow Farm. I love their stuff, I wish I could have afforded more.
I bought two bags of roving from these fine people:
This is Scotia, a dark blue color.
I have quite a bit of knitting ahead of me, including a scarf for Boyfriend, knitting for myself and here is an ALMOST completed ear flap hat:
Its a red/orangey mess that I LOVE! I'm making this for Boyfriend's sister who absolutely does not read this so I am not worried about ruining any surprises. It's knit with some wool that was handspun that I traded from Ravelry.
Ok, I am pooped from uploading. I got a pro account for Flickr, I feel like a new woman! Enjoy and keep knitting!
