My Rhinebeck Lists

My tote bag is packed (it's ready to go).

Tote bag is packed

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.

Embossed Leaves are not too likely   Queen of the Jungle Stripe is more likely

Hope to see you there!

girlfriend, thanks for the coupons from morehouse farms! I have no idea what I'll be wearing. I'll have my giant, oversized, multicolor, tote bag with me.

Hope to see you there!

woohoo! i'm so incredibly excited for this, and can't wait to see you! i hope we can get our mitts on some STR, and don't get trampled in a yarn riot.

Sorry I didn't get to see you yesterday--or at least talk to you! (grin) It sure was a beautiful day, though, huh?

I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to meet up at Rhinebeck! Hope you had as good a time as I did.

It was great meeting you! (Gah... I forgot to take your photo with Swatchgrrl... I think I must have been half asleep when we bumped into each other.)
