A very late Rhinebeck recap!!

I went to Rhinebeck again this year with Heather, and we had a lot of fun.

Alanna of Tactile Travel organizes a really great and stress free trip.

This year there was no hotel mix-up and the place we were staying was great, a real step up from last year and conveniently located. Not having to do the driving was great and the mix of people was fun. I learned a lot from them and they were all really nice. You should come along next year. You want to see the purchases? Ok, here it goes.

This is two gigantic skeins from Brian Rose Fibers of Pilgrim in a beautiful dark colorway with red, green and blue.

This is a really soft skein of angora and wool that I will use for a hat for the husband.

This is a really soft skein of Brooks Farm Solo in Greens and Creams. It was on sale and was a totally great purchase I do not regret.

This is 6 skeins of Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester Aran for a sweater. It is a beautiful grey. I think it is for the Owls Sweater.

You can't tell from this picture but this is a dark green larger skein of angora and one small skein of purple angora. It is really soft and for a hat for my niece.

This is three skeins of beautiful purple and lilac Brooks Farm Sport weight Solo.

This is the swag bag from the ravelry party.

What's this?

Oh yeah, Guido of It's a Purl Man taught me how to drop spindle on the car ride down and I left Rhinebeck with a spindle and some fiber.

Happy KNitting and Spinning!!!
