I LOVE this season!

Autumn winds always drift me into yarn shops...............
Fall display @ a sidewalk cafe.
Alas, not much shopping has been done at the stores this Fall season. The global financial crisis is starting to take its toll on NYC. The bright side? I got HOPE and stash!!!

Rhinebeck 2008

It was a glorious day!! I came with my 6 years old son, so it was not exactly the fiber filled ecstasy I was dreaming of (...) but it was great! I did not get a chance to smooze much, but I did meet in person the Master! Adrian of Hello Yarn! I bought only one little skein of alpaca, but that's ok.
Thanks A.M of sit n knit NYC for organizing the bus, (even if we only saw you shooting (pix) after the bus as we were leaving.......) and for Tina and Christina for making sure it was all smooth sailing. I just hope I did not snore too loud on the way back......... I was exhausted.

And this is a great time of year to wear hand knits! The world is in turmoil. We don't know how world economies will work out, but one has to be able to stop and count one's blessings. I for one, am going to count (inventory) my stash..... And go "shopping" in my stash.

Update from NYC

I have been caught up in the global unrest. I have taken it very hard, and life seems to be a little suspended at this time. I take care of the basics, although don't get enough sleep. Too much information to absorb. And worse- not much knitting. Darn, I miss my knitting........

I have knits 3 red squares for a communal flag afghan. A group of The Colbert Report fans is knitting for Stephen.

A neck warmer for sit n knit cowl exchange. The Good Luck Cowl, in Lorna Lace sock yarn. This yarn is really nice to work with. I have some left over, I might have to use some for myself.........

And made some progress on my 007, in Rowan Feted Tweed. I was hoping for a Rhinebeck debut, and I hope to get to the sleeves tonight. There is not much time.

So I'll be in Rhinebeck on Sat 10/18. Hope to see some of you there!
