My tote bag is packed (it's ready to go).
As you can see, I'm happy to support (literally) the Presby Iris Gardens (Exit 151), a place of special beauty – here's an entire Project Spectrum in irises, from the 2006 open house.
I have my list of Rhinebeck must-sees:
Fanatica Fibers - A 1
Anne's cute f-f-f-felting kits.
Journey Wheel - 22 28
Makers of my Bosworth Featherweight spindle.
Moving Mud - 29 L
Collectible glass shawl closures and buttons.
Golding Ring Spindles - A 35-36
Not that I need another spindle.
Morehouse Farm 22K and 31 F, G
Coupons! and hospitality at their nearby store.
Great Adirondack Yarn Company - 22 2-3
Not that I need more yarn.
The Fold - A 25
Just to see how fast STR sells out this time.
The Herd of Northern Vermonters - 36 P
No idea who these folk are, but they sound like fun.
Plus Kristen recommends the milk shakes.
Super-organized Risa, who thinks of everything, is driving the carpool. Lemmesee... I have my Blogger Bingo card, map, directions, and every medium of exchange accepted by vendors: cash, checks, credit cards (no, they don't take yap stones or fractious first-borns). So that's all set.
Deborah asked which socks I plan to wear. Er, dunno. If I manage to finish them (har!), Embossed Leaves, but more likely Queen of the Jungle Stripe, which are comfortable and still have endearingly mismatched toes despite all threats of a coup.
Hope to see you there!
