Oh Rhinebeck, I miss you already.

Brandt’s birthday was yesterday. This is what he picked out at Rhinebeck for his present. I’m totally geeked to start knitting his new sweater. I’m not quite sure the design yet, but I do know it will be another zip up cardigan style sweater. He wears the one I made him last year all. the. time. So he’s getting another.
This is Maine Organic, from Green Mountain Spinnery. It is awesomely sheepy, and also something I wouldn’t have picked out myself. I knitted a swatch immediately. Though I think a 7 or 8 needle would be best for this yarn, I’m going to go with 6’s, so this will be a more sweater-jacket type thing. Perfect for layering. We’re big layer-ers over here.

And these are for me! I was so very good at Rhinebeck this year. Just these yarns and a pattern for my Mum is all that I bought. I think these will be mittens of some kind. They are from Zeilingers Woolen Mill, and I love them.

Shop update tomorrow! Lots of Halloween yarns!

    Oh WOW!!! I LOVE the last two colors!!!

    Mittens you say?! Those would make absolutely beautiful mittens xD

    There is a pattern on ravelry called “Delphine Mittens” and one called “Willistead” that would look amazing in those colors 🙂

    I so glad to see a new entry. This is one of my favorite knitting blogs 🙂

    Uhhh, sorry about that. I should have checked the user info before hitting send. That comment was from me and not from you to yourself, which would be strange although kind of funny.

    It was v cool to hang out with you and Brandt! (not too many people in the fiber world are impressed with my Asheron’s Call connections *g*)

    Happy belated b-day to your Brandt. It was very nice running into you (and I admired his sweater both times we saw you!).

    Happy birthday to Brandt. Great yarn selection!
    I can’t wait for the update today. I’m such a stalker and am already hitting refresh over and over this morning.

    From your stuff, it looks like you were as good as I was this year! I am pretty sure I’m going to go back again next year, it was good to see the other kinds of yarn I could find (I fall for lace weight, so it is also dangerous)!

    oh my goodness! did I see you and not SEE you there?

    It was so nice to meet you. Did I say a proper hello!? It was fun to hang with you and your hubby in Carole’s party room.

    Happy birthday to Brandt! What an awesome gift of sweater he’s getting. Do I seek steeks in your future?

    I can’t believe you only got two skeins of gorgeous yarn!? Did you not go to the cormo booth, or perhaps you went in after me and it was much emptier…

    Nice selections, both. I’m glad I got to see you at Rhinebeck, and to meet Brandt. He’s pretty cool too 🙂
