Yes, I went this year!!! And it was such fun!!!
With so many articles (Blogs, YouTube and otherwise), there is not much I can add.

So, I want to first share two of my favorites:
  • This is an article by Mason Dixon Knitting and I like it especially, because it features Julibeth sporting her "Sunset Highways" sweater knitted up in Hedgehog yarn from The Knitting Garage in Rhinebeck (where we both work).  Click on the link to read the full article.

  • And this one is a video by Kristi Glass; 1 1/2 hour long but well worth it as by the end you will feel like you went yourself :) and you will have a queue of new projects to start, because everyone's Rhinebeck sweater looks SO GOOD.

Last , but not least here is me (it was actually cool enough to wear a sweater in the morning until it got too hot and I changed into a different top).

wearing my Elibelinde sweater, Leftie Shawl and #12 Skirt
I also wore my RBK mitts (but not all day as it was too warm)
RBK Fingerless Mitts

  • I ran into some familiar faces spinning:
Marie-Pauline spinning right off her rabbit:

And Ute spinning on a big wheel:

  • And my spoils of the day:

Starting at the bottom left corner and going clockwise: Blue-ish yarn is a raw Silk Yarn I want to use to make a "Boxy Lacy Top", then there are a few pins for myself and as gifts, a "Fleegler Beader" from Ms Babs as I have lots of beads and this tool is supposed to make it easier to add the beads to my knitting :)
The purplish yarn from The Neighborhood Fiber Co. will go with the Hedgehog Yarn I had bought at The Knitting Garage (color doesn't show up well in the picture; it has a lot of blues and purples ). I am planning on the "Trestle" pattern.
What do you think?



  • I was also in Sunday's ravelry group picture which I will share as soon as it is published on their site (I am the one in the back row brazenly stretching out my hands to show off my mitts).  I certainly hope I was not in anyone's way. 

We had a LOT of fun at the LYS in Rhinebeck, The Knitting Garage at Stickle's.  Especially due to the extended hours (open till 8pm) and wine and snacks and -needles to say- amazing yarns and notions.  The Knitting Garage Yarn (hand-dyed by Leah Stickle) is fabulous, but we also carry Hedgehog, Fibre Company, Madeline Tosh, Brooklyn Tweed, Cascade, Loopy Mango, to name just a few.  AND since Leah was not able to do a booth at the fair (due to health issues), we had all of her pretty hand-sewn project bags in the store. so, the place was hopping and FUN.

Off my needles and on my needles

My Elibelinde is finished 😍

For those of you who don't follow me on Facebook (Knit With Doris/Discover Your Inner Knitter) and didn't see my post, but wonder whatever happened with the sweater I talked about in my last post:  It is finished and I am looking forward to the cooler weather to wear it.
