I haven't seen this beautiful blue light for 3 weeks! Luckily I was correct in my diagnosis - a new power supply unit works wonders! A new Apple is still on the wishlist, but I need to save a few more ducats before that can become a reality.
But I know you guys are more interested in how I made out in Rhinebeck, right?
I had a great time! I drove up with Dana and met up with Carolyn, Gwen, Colette, Mia, Sam, and Maritza. We managed to cover most of the vendors and amazingly didn't get pushed around too much. We watched the dog trials and ran into a few other bloggers. I have Dana to thank for that, she has eagle eyes. My excuse is that I was suffering from sensory overload!
And can you believe I almost walked away without buying one single thing! Everything was really nice, but I had a hard time committing to anything. Then just as I was saying my good-byes, I happened to spot a really pretty colored yarn out of the corner of my eye. Then I noticed the booth belonged to Briar Rose Fibers - one of the sponsors for the podcast Cast-On. It was all over from there, I went inside and found this beautiful lace weight alpaca.
This 2500 yards of pretty alpaca goodness will someday become a shawl.
I'll have some more pictures to post later. I brought my camera, but was too lazy to drag the 10 ton thing out for photo ops. (Bad lazy blogger!) Again, I have Dana to thank, she'll be emailing the pictures she took once she gets back on Tuesday.
