Farm Fresh

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007 8 comments

This is going to be a quickie, because a dear friend will box my ears if a certain pair of gloves isn’t in her possession reallyreallysoon.

Rhinebeck was all that I’d heard. Stitches was equally fun, and people made it so in both case. I spent most of my time with Carol, Laura, Mindy and Alison, but also met a long list of very cool women (and a few guys!).

Not to worry – I still like the yarn. I’m on a breed specific kick this year. Check out the haul above(from left to right): Connie’s Creations (sadly, there’s no mention of which breed of wool this is…), Greenwood Hill Farm Merino, Morehouse Merino, Foxhill Farm Moorit, Foxhill Farm Cormo, Four Directions Lincoln, Meadowland Farm Border Leicester and some Jacob wool (I’ll have to look in my receipts for the name of the farm). With the exception of the merinos, I only purchased single skeins.

Oh, and I got a niddy noddy. Pretty, isn’t it?

Ok, back to work!

    That is a very cool niddy noddy. Makes me wish all the more that I could have made the ride up to Rhinebeck.

    Foxhill is one of my favorite vendors. I did not pick up anything from them this year at Rhinebeck because I sort of over did it at Cummington earlier in the year. But I absolutely love their stuff especially the cormo and their fox sox yarn.

    You may be the first person I’m happy I did not run into :) I think I would of gushed a bit to much and made a total fool of myself.

    That niddy noddy is gorgeous!

    What a lovely haul! Gerat colours. I’m a total merino addict too, so I understand your allegiance to the speicies!

    Look at all that yummy yarn! Glad you enjoyed your knitting conventions. I would love to attend some day, but for now, must content myself with reading about it on other people’s blogs :)

    Love your Collette Pullover. I like henley like shapes and the fair isle is very cute :)

    It was such a wonderful pleasure to meet you, Veronik. As I said, I am SUCH a fan, and to find you so delightful in person was lovely. Enjoy your Rhinebeck loot! Cheers.

    What is a niddy noddy used for??? Forgive my innocence.
