I know I’m a bit late posting this but here you go…

The weather at the Duchess County Fairgrounds this year was absolutely wonderful.  And by that I mean it actually felt and looked like fall!

Ubiquitous Tree

I think just about everyone takes a picture of this tree and why not, it never fails to amaze. The colors are always stunning.

So lets cut right to the chase:

There was much yarn to be had, although I must say I showed quite a bit of restraint this year. I picked up some yummy yarns from Holiday Yarns, Miss Babs, Lisa Souza (always) and Dragonfly Fibers (first time at Rhinebeck – please come back), I also picked up Laura Nelkin’s latest book, “Knockout Knits”, which she signed for me (yays!), a new gorgeous mug created by Stacey Stanhope and got an unexpected gift from my friend Holly (aka knitterotica) who’s friend makes these awesome pouches. I’ll be checking out her site soon!

I wasn’t exactly planning on knitting another shawl/scarf/kerchief at the moment but then I needed something for a long car ride. Something that wouldn’t require lots of thought, something that I could easily memorize and something that’s not fiddly.

So Age of Brass and Steam it is.

A wee bit more colorful then the first one huh?
Steam Kerchief

I’ll be honest the yarn I chose freaked me out a bit when I started it but as I kept knitting (encouraged by my enabler aka: husband), I came to really like how the colors are working out.

But I have something else on my plate too. Something that requires actual gauge as in it must fit a real human and I don’t mean flung over the shoulders but that’s another post. 😉

Oh, and I completed my Brickless it just needs blocking. LOVE! I’ll post pix soon.

Now I’m thinking about a major blog overhaul.

Stay tuned.
