It seems so long ago already and yet, it’s been less than a week since Rhinebeck. One thing is for sure, one day is not enough! Here’s what I did see in my one day…
Everything from Sheep to Shawl!
And I came home with a few goodies too!
A gradient kit from Good Karma Farms! The peacock colors called to me. Resistance was futile! No idea what I’ll do with it. Maybe something 3-color cashmere cowl inspired. Maybe some sequence knitting, I do love a good texture. For now, I’m just petting it…it’s delightful!
And in the surprise of the weekend, two skeins of Miss Babs Rhinebeck 2016 colorway! A skein of Caroline, (on the left) the new MCN base that’s 20% cashmere!! and a skein of Kaweah, (on the right) the dk weight merino workhorse.
We waited the crowd out, it was after 1 pm by the time we got to Miss Babs. I wasn’t expecting to see any of the special color left. But when there were a few skeins remaining and the line was less than 10 minutes long. Again, resistance was futile. No idea what these will become either but I like the idea of using them together. It could create a neat effect or maybe it’ll be so busy it hurts? I dunno…haven’t decided yet.
And then there’s the yarn Mom & I dyed!
A sparkle sock blank!! Size 0 needles should be coming in the mail today. I’m gonna try really hard to not hate knitting socks. This yarn is so fun…that should help!
and this guy, a skein of HiKoo’s SimpliNatural, it’s a merino/alpaca/silk blend. It’s soooooo soft! With all the fall foliage inspired yarns out there, we had a go at creating our own leaf peepers yarn. I can’t wait to see how it knits up!!
I think this might be a cast on all the things weekend. :) I don’t see any way around it.
