rhinebeck: better late than....

Photo Heavy Monday would be Photo Heavier today if the new cheapo card reader hadn't immediately broken and corrupted a 2 gig card full images from Rhinebeck. Luckily I had a few on another card from the NY Sheep & Wool Fest last month.
this year's hats at Rhinebeck 
This year's hats on my friends from New Haven- LOVE the fat sequins.

Seacolors Yarn 
Nanney Kennedy's Seacolors yarns from her Meadowcroft Farm

Ann Shayne, Gale Zucker, Kay Gardiner, french fries 
None of the setting's beauty but all of the fun I had with Ann & Kay of Mason Dixon Knitting.

Sister Lulu and I found this amazing B&B at the last minute, right on the Hudson in Tivoli.0049_GZucker1111famvar 
(from the Lulucam) It was less a fawncy B&B, more a visit to an eccentric auntie who last left the premises in 1942. In a word, fabulous. Although unconventional: I had a direct view of the Hudson- and a jar of home canned pickles as a bookend.
booksigning at NY Sheep & Wool
I spent a great deal of my time at the Craft Activism table in the author's area. Gale Zucker & Kirsten Karpur
with great company like Craft Activism contributors Kirsten Karpurbooksigning
and Ann Weaver, helping me show the Fussy Cuts blanket while I continue to flap my handsbooksigning
Happily I was right next to Anna Hrachovec who shares my hand skillz. I LOVE her MochiMochi work.
Gale Zucker & Laura Nelkin 
I finally met Laura Nelkin (in her Iota capelet) ! She is so tiny- she seemed so much larger on Twitter, where we've become friends. This photo also demonstrates that restraint in color and a natural palette is a better choice than...what was I thinking? An explosion of color in my attire.  Note to self: please knit some solid headbands. Please.

thanks to my sister, Linda Hali Zucker , for documenting the action in these photos in the authors area or this would be a Photo Slim post!

You captured the fun and energy of Rhinebeck perfectly.

LOVE! Thanks! And, btw, I love your use of color -- no toning it down!!

I'm so glad it took you a while to post about this, so I could relive it once again.

And that french fry booth - it is one piece of the Rhinebeck puzzle and belongs there just as much as the yarn does.

HA! Look at us and our crazy hats! you wouldn't believe, but I'm going to have another occasion to wear the hats again before the year end! Val and I are gonna wear it to our spinning in December! :)

Love your color explosion. I don't think you should tone it down at all! :)

Love, love, LOVE your colors. Don't tone them down! Striped headband is good, too.

Subdued color capelet on small-boned person is good, too, just in a different way. Vive la difference in color and style, I say. : )
