Rhinebeck 2023

Well, the sea of Antique Flora's was all that and more.  For some reason it is just SO wonderful to twin with other knitters!  Gina did the most amazing job dying the yarn so that all the sweaters looked wonderful together!  It was raining on and off that Saturday... But that didn't stop us!

{Gina, me, Sara, Stephanie, Laura}

I do wish mine fit a little like the others.  Ha.  I guess I should have made the 37" instead of the 34"!
Can you stand the cuteness of these sweeties?!!!
Felted.  I mean!!!

Okay.  SO many yarn experts, dyers, companies!  It truly makes your head spin in the most glorious way.  It is just an entire day of everything that makes my heart sing.  And I know I'm not alone!  
I love, love, love seeing samples and obtaining inspiration from them.  I really love that sweater up there and love being introduced to a new company.  Maybe this will be in my future.  
This was during the CAKEpoloosa event.   That's gorgeous Gina loving the rain wearing a no frills in her yarn. (Ha!)  And that is marvelous Margaret from Boboleros sporting her Saturday Shrug in her yarn.  

I'm wearing the Barbie Bubble Wrap designed by Margaret.  I'll be back to tell you all about that.

my rhinebeck sweater

The Rhinebeck sweater is important.  I learned this during my first trip to Rhinebeck when I failed to wear a knit.  WHAT?!!!  I've learned a lot since then!

This year, when I go, I will be wearing the Antique Flora by Wool & Pine.  The yarn is by Gina from SkeinCocaine and she will be wearing one also!  Along with a few others.  All in different colors with the body of the sweater in the same color.  I am super excited to see them all together.

We were in Colorado last week (more on that later) and I spent some quality time outside knitting.  
What a joy!

This weekend, I am determined to finish the second sleeve and get it on the blocking mat.  (I actually don't have a mat, just a towel and the floor.)

Happy Weekend!
