So, I spent the weekend at Rhinebeck. I planned to have much fibery fun and much was had...by others. I never even set foot on the fair grounds. I did see lots of my hotel room and last night even an Emergency room (because where else do you find a doctor at 7pm on a Sunday night?). Don't worry, all has turned out well with a clear plan of action for symptom resolution. Life's good. =-D
On the up side, my generous sister was able to procure a commemorative Sheep and Wool embroidered project bag for me. It is just the perfect size for transporting the ever growing afghan. Also, she and my mother scoured the booths for a yarn that incorporated black to match my new winter coat. No luck. I'm glad they looked because otherwise the thought that I had missed out on finding the perfect yarn would have haunted me. I got to enjoy their stories of what they had seen and admire some beautiful yarn purchases.
Thankfully, I was well enough on Saturday night to make the Ravelry get together. It was so much fun to meet in person folks I've only "seen" on line. Mom even won one of the raffle prizes and had her picture taken by someone from Webs. Wonder where that pic will turn up...
KINEARING THE HARLOT
Just three people away from me when the pic was snapped. You cannot tell from the dark cell phone pic but she is wearing the finished Kauni sweater. It is just as beautiful as you would imagine. I wish my pics of Jess and Casey standing on chairs to address the throng had come out. It was quite a sight, and let me tell you knitters are LOUD! Shy? Retiring? Aged? No way Jose! lol
So, it was a fun and semi-relaxing weekend overall. Best laid plans my go awry, but all is not lost!
