I wish...

I wish I could have gone to Rhinebeck! Sigh..............Well I couldn't make it and I would really love to live vicariously through all of you who have. So please tell me who went so I can check out your pictures!!!! (Note: this is not a whoreing for comments)

Well I can't show fabulous pictures of things from Rhinebeck I can show my kool aid dyed yarn. I know, it's not the same. But look, I got nothing okay?



Yes, all achived with kool aide!!!

Here is what you get when you let an 8 year old boy loose with yarn and kool aide (is there an e on aide???? don't know...)


We are calling it the monster colors. Neat huh?

Thank you to all on my "Inspirational" post last week. I am glad it got you thinking. It was more serious than I usually get or am. Wait until New Years! I may even get you to cry!

Beth, your dyed yarn looks great. What are you going to do with it all? I especially like the orange--very seasonal.

I didn't get to go to Rhinebeck either :-( But Alison has lots of good stuff on her Blue Blog (http://alison.knitsmiths.us/) with lots of other links to others who were able to go. Hopefully that will work for ya. I love your Kool-Aide yarn -- good job!

Hi Beth - First of all, I want to make sure you know that the Yarn Harlot appearance at Creekside Books is cancelled. Apparently a very good friend of Stephanie's died suddenly so she is altering her tour.

Now ... as for Rhinebeck ... I also have the blues that I couldn't go ... SO ... I'm making sure that doesn't happen next year! I've already made a hotel reservation in nearby Kingston and will head down there on Friday. You are more than welcome to come with me next year!

BTW ... we are knitting in Armory at Starbucks this Saturday morning starting about 10:30 or so. I'm sure all the Rhinebeckers (Erin, Elizabeth, Jill, Diana etc.)will be there reliving the experience and flashing their stash acquisitions. (I am soooo jealous!) Come on down!

Someone's got Kool-Aid skills.

Beth, you are the bomb-diggity. Dan is not far behind you, either! But to make someone cry? Come on - I know you better then that! Just kidding. I am going to be posting my knitting on my blog once our computer is up and running again, so stay tuned!!!!

For those of you out there - Beth and her hunny bunny just celebrated their anniversary - I believe it is 12 years???

The colors are so great! Nice job. Don't you love the process? Then you get the added treat of seeing how it knits up!
