My Rhinebeck adventure was not all shopping- I got to meet 2 of my Twitter Buddies Knitstamatic and Knitterotica. It is so much fun meeting cyber friends in person. Now I will hear all their tweets in their own voice-
We met up at the Ravelry Meet up and exchanged home made goodies. I do not have a photo of all my goodies because as I was siting in my car waiting in line to leave- I realized that all I ate was a caramel apple, and 2 apple cider doughnuts, I promptly gobbled everything down in one joyful little meal, everything was so delicious.
Amazingly I got 2 sets of Knitstamatic’s Orange Cardamom Cornmeal cookies. She was so sweet to tie then up with bits of yarn she used to knit the Giggles Baby Blanket for her friend. These 2 little pieces of yarn are now very precious to me.
Not only was I meeting friends and shopping I was also out promoting my newest pattern- Rhinebeck Bag. I met several friends and new readers who asked and/or demanded their buttons and free patterns.
My newest pattern is for a wonderful felted bag. A simple knit, with stripes inspired by the Fibonacci series. It is a nice size for these types of events, big enough to hold your purchases but not too big to get in the way. Great size for farmers markets and running errands or it also makes a wonderful knitting bag.
I used beautiful purse handles from Jul Designs. I like leather handles on my felted bags. Leather handles keep their shape, and sturdy and can carry a heavy load without cutting into my shoulder.
Jul Design purse handles are available on line at Dream Weaver Yarns.
Time to go wind up some of this amazing yarn,
