Rhinebeck 2014

Rhinebeck was a quickie this year. Like I said before my 30th high school reunion was also this weekend. So we did a "drive by" on Sunday. 

The crowds - they were not so bad. Of course on Sunday you don't get first choice of fiber but it was a pleasant shopping experience. I had a few items on my wish list. 

Some gradient fiber from Fiber Optic. I got two of these bad boys. 

Some beautiful yarn from Miss Babs. Even on Sunday it was impossible to get into the booth. I went back around 4:00 and was able to grab this skein. 

I resisted Briar Rose this year. But look at that booth. And those colors. 

Of course the weather was perfect although a tad bit windy. And yes - I wore my shawl which I will show pictures of tomorrow.  It was nice to be able to just walk around and enjoy the outdoors. I also got to chat with the Yarn Harlot briefly. I really wanted to take a picture with her but she was into shopping and I didn't want to interrupt too much. 

So I walked out with only two purchases. Have no fear. New England Fiber Festival is in a couple of weeks.

Two purchases sounds very restrained :) As a Brit, I don't think I'll ever get to Rhinebeck, so I love seeing people's pictures of it, even if the crowds sound kind of nuts!

Looking forward to seeing your shawl tomorrow :)
