…I owe you a wedding post (waiting on the photos from my favorite photographer) and a honeymoon post (want to do the wedding post first because I try to not put the cart before the horse or the wedding before the honeymoon if I can help it – nevermind that R and I have been together for 11 years so I definitely did SOMETHING out of order *ahem*) but I can’t do either just yet so here I am giving you…

A Rhinebeck post!

R went with me this year which was lots of fun – he has been to other, smaller shows with me but never Rhinebeck.  When we had to wait in a 20 min line to get in he was a little taken aback – especially when three busloads of people unloaded and got in line behind us – then, when we walked past Building A & B and he saw the line snaking out across the walkway he was like, “wth is that line for?” and I was all, “dude. Socks That Rock.”  I must point out reason # four billionty why I love him, when I told him it was STR he knew what I meant and I didn’t have to explain further.  (however can I just interject here and point out that you can buy STR online and from my standpoint, standing in line for however long that line was is a little bit…well, silly, to me.  I’m sorry but…you can buy it online!  Sure, go in and touch it and look at the colorways but then take notes of what you like and then go online and order it instead of wasting precious festival time on line…but then, that’s just my opinion.  ;o)  )

Rhinebeck 2010

We spent most of the day walking around, talking to friends, getting hugs and congrats on the wedding (which was wonderful!  thank you all!) and that’s about it!  I did no shopping – I bought some honey but nothing fiber related.  I know!  Craziness!!

Saturday night we drove South to Kingston Poughkeepsie (oops!  It was pointed out to me by my husband that Kingston is on the OTHER side of the river!) and met up with Carole, her husband Dale, Kim and Hillary for dinner at our usual spot.  I got the seared tuna that I think about all year long, it was wonderful!

Rhinebeck 2010

As usual, the trees put on quite a show, everywhere we looked there was lovely fall color.

Rhinebeck 2010

On Sunday, I went back on my own and spent the day walking around with Carole & Dale, meeting up with other friends along the way (too many to link!  I think Carole did a linky fest on her post so I’ll send you over there) and I bought something!

Rhinebeck Purchases

A bag of Into the Whirled merino/silk and two skeins of merino/silk that I think I’ll turn into a neck warmer someday.

All in all it was a wonderful weekend and a great way to wrap up our honeymoon, I’m so glad we came home early!

OH! one more thing…

Guess what?

Guess What?

Sheep butt.  hehe  Sorry, had to do it! ;op

    It was a wonderful weekend! My daughter & I looked for you (she was carrying your skiing monkey bag and wanted to let you know how much she likes it), but you were out and about where we were not! :)

    Your purchases are lovely!

  • Manise says:

    Funny that we both wound up with merino/silk yarn for a neck warmer. Same colors almost, though different vendors-lol. So great seeing you and RR with your post-wedding/ honeymoon glow and spending time with you! Great photos above. I love the huge old maples ablaze in color each year we go.

  • Sairy says:

    Glad we finally got to meet Roger :) Beautiful wedding photos btw! And I love the sheepy butt photo.

    Owning a sheep farm, my mother has expressed the fear more than once that whoever cleans the house upon her death will think she has a perverted interest in sheep butts. Your photo made me think of that again. lol

    It was great to see you. I’m with you on the STR line. We went into the booth later on Saturday and it was picked over, but there were still plenty of choices. I can’t imagine anything I’d stand in that kind of line for…maybe a kiss from Johnny Depp, but even that…

    I’m so glad you had a good time. Tell the husband I don’t get the STR thing either, so he’s in good company. ;^)

  • Nicole says:

    There’s one reason I will wait in the STR line rather than ordering online: Rare Gems. I have two skeins from Stitches West, and love them. Can’t wait to knit myself some socks with them, once I’m done with gift knitting. But for the regular yarn? I’ll go to my LYS that carries STR, or buy online.

    Talk about gorgeous leaves! Wow.

    Sheep butt!

    It was really good to see you. I’m 100% with you on the STR thing.

  • Sheep butt! LOL!!! Ditto on the STR.
