Rhinebeck 2011



Oh well hello there! Yes it's been quite an eventful month. You know, things like fiber festival wing dings, having your house partially remodeled and watching in realtime as your marriage implodes at Lowe's while you SHOUT OVER one another about Levolor blind options and dual fuel ovens [for the record, I won both those arguments with my implacable logic but alas allowed him to get his way on one of two accounts], the maelstrom of the semester and learning how to make Siri do my bidding have really thrown my knit-something-post-it-to-my-blog-and-then-Ravelry into a tailspin. But luckily I have still been knitting and have quite a backlog of FOs to show you in upcoming, super-thrilling posts. For now I'm posting this mosaic from Rhinebeck which, if you haven't been and are somewhat mobile and on the east coast of the US, should really try to make it to at some point [note: I know my mother will be commenting upon the syntax of this sentence to me at some point. It's ok. This is how the young folk raised in the 80s talk nowadays]. If the yarn won't entice you, maybe the dough lady might mean something to you? In any case, I had a rollicking good time with my Knitpals as it really affirmed to me HOW MUCH I LOVE KNITTING AND MOST PEOPLE WHO KNIT!

That mosaic contains so much yarn I can't even.

SJ said...

Sigh. Your mosaic makes me even more sad that I haven't made it to Rhinebeck yet. Next year, maybe?

Thea said...

Your mosaic is lovely, and your paragraph hilarious. Had some of the same Lowes conversations this summer during our remodel. I lost the dual wall oven argument, and now if we're ever on Bang for Your Buck on HGTV, am sure I'll get to say "told you so".

Some year I need to take GOOD pics like yours! Was nice to see you, albeit briefly - :-)

Laughing a whole metric ton about the argument description!

lauren said...

You are fabulous. And I feel like an asshole but this account of you and Gary shouting in Lowe's totally cracked me up.

Joan said...

Always a joy to read a new post from you-- great pictures! Please, what is the loveliness around Kirsten's neck?

Fried dough. One of the sweetest word unions in the English Language. And here's two other words that make my heart sing: wool festival. OH HOW I WISH I HAD BEEN THERE. (Sob)

I'd now like to embarrass you by saying how damn cute you look in the top photo rocking that lovely red sweater. Silver fox!

Glad you're back! I've missed your posts.

Minty said...

Yay Rhinebeck! And fried dough! Two great tastes in one!

A-L said...

Great to see you're back! Love reading your blog:-) (btw. any idea what's that gorgeous shawl/scarf on top row right? I absolutely NEED to have one as well!!! )

Brendaknits said...

Oh no! Mothers who comment on syntax. Is that good or bad? Funny story about the argument. You never know the guy you marreid until you do renos together.

It is indeed great to be reading a post from you again. Pictures are great, and your blog entry is - as is so often the case - very funny.

I, too, am wondering about the shawl/scarf in the top right picture. I LOVE it, and just might have to knit one for myself.

Great photos! I had such a great time at Rhinebeck this year too. :)
