Rhinebeck Loot

At long last I am finally ready to show you what I got at Rhinebeck!

Here's the loot!

Rhinebeck Loot

1. 2 braids (one merino silk and one corriedale)from the Sheep Shack at Mountain View Farms (no website that I could find)

2. Corriedale roving from Grafton Fibers

3. Alpaca mittens (These were my first purcahse as soon as I walked in the first barn - it was cold!)

4. Merino Silk lace weight from A Touch of Twist

5. Majacraft bobbins and 2 cones of cotton thread. This was my deal of the day! I was so excited to find two bobbins for a STEAL! They still have yarn on them too - hehe. The lady selling these was trying to clean out her supply of random things and I saw an amazing deal on a Lendrum speedy flier. Larissa ended up getting it for her new wheel for over half off retail price! I was just happy to find bobbins for half price and she threw in the cotton yarn for free!

6. A Rhinebeck long sleeve t-shirt

7. A Silk scarf

8. 1 skein of green merino yarn - from Shepherds Mill Farm - maybe for a Koolhaas hat?

9. A Silk cap - I have never tried spinning from a silk hanky or silk cap. I got this to try out the technique.

10. 5 different colors of fingering weight yarn from Shelridge Farms - for Fiddlehead mittens

11. 8 skeins of oatmeal merino yarn from Shepherds Mill Farm - for a sweater to be determined.

12. This gorgeous hand sewn Needle case!

Double Point and circular needle case

It holds both circular and DPNs - wow!

13. I also was lucky enough to get the signature of Ann and Kay of Mason Dixon fame.

They have the coolest stamps of their pictures too!

14. I also got 2 signed copies of

Steaphanie Pearl McPhee's latest NY Times Best Seller! (one for me and one for Sarah)

Yarn Harlot's Free Range knitter

And finally the most important thing we did at Rhinebeck was handout these buttons...

Cloverhill buttons

Jolene's yarn shop - Cloverhill - is going online!! Now all of you that don't live in Maryland can get the same awesome yarn that I can. Her shop will be open for business starting in November, but you can sign up to receive news and information now!

The needle holder is awesome! First thing my eye was drawn to, then I started drooling over the wooden thingies and the gorgeous yarn/fibre goodness you had on display!

The Shepherd's Wool is a fantastic yarn. If Jolene will carry all of the colors, I will be driving down to the store.

And the mittens look nice and warm.

Great haul! Sorry I missed Rhinebeck this year. Next year, I'm planning to be there and will be helping a friend.
