Next on the Needles

I don’t need more yarn, so I tried to be very strategic at Rhinebeck and only buy yarn for a specific project, vests for the boys.  I was looking for something in a wooly and kind of rustic green.  I hadn’t heard of Wild Apple Hill Farm but we saw their booth and I knew that I had found the place.  Apparently, they only sell once a year at Rhinebeck, so that made it more of a special souvenir yarn, too.  So, next on the needles will be two Pepo Pie vests for the boys because it really doesn’t get any cuter than little boys in that vest.  I’m hoping to finish them by Thanksgiving so that I can have my dad take pictures of them for Christmas cards, but we shall see.   

Rhinebeck, Woo!

I realized after hauling all of our stuff to baggage check on the way to Rhinebeck that making that sort of trip with a three week old was kind of crazy. But, it was the best kind of crazy! Also, I had a ton of help once I got there. Auntie MH was our roomie for most of the trip.


Auntie Sparkli held him for me at meet-ups (she also filled in for me at Ravelry while I was on maternity leave).


Nancy came to hang with us one night & helped me prevent a near “spit up on the furniture” disaster.


And, I don’t have photographic evidence, but Ysolda, Laura, Jess, Casey, Kyle & Erica all helped out. Lots of people at the festival helped me navigate everything with a wee one, too! Having so many people taking care of us made the trip so pleasant. Oh, and I bought some stuff, too, but still need to photograph it. Coming soon!
