Blogless Nancy, Katie, and I carpooled to Rhinebeck on Sunday and a grand time was had by all, except I have nothing to show for it. My digicam took some establishing shots, then stopped functioning. The batteries were freshly charged – maybe it was this sick jack-o-lantern photo that did it (courtesy students of the CIA).
Sunday Blogger Bingo was congenially laid back.* I met, chatted with, and/or spotted quite a few squares, authors, and bloggers including (sorry, no pix): Alison, Ann and Kay, Anne, Clara, Jennifer, Jess, Jessica, Kristin, Risa, Mama Squid and Squidette (thanks for the spinning advice!), Stephanie in her Kauni, and Bingo center square Mel, whose handsewn kilt is a marvel.
The day was unseasonably warm, so warm that very few people could stand to wear their knit finery all day. It was a sadness – one of the best things about Rhinebeck is crisp weather = the chance for leaf-peeping and sweater-ogling. (The f-f-felted backpack did very well.) The goddess of knitting must be toying with us mortals – last year it was almost too cool for a sweater without a coat and I suspect some knitters prepared for this year by knitting heavy sweaters. Hm... wonder what will happen next year.
*How laid back was it? It was so laid back there was a fair selection of STR at The Fold. Perhaps it's a sign.
