I am pretty sure I missed a whole swath of booths at Rhinebeck, but it was a pretty huge event and there was so much crammed into the buildings that I didn’t even realize @_@ I ended up going with two non-knitters, Rich & his sister, and having a pretty damn good time. I didn’t take out my camera very much, because it was so crowded and there was barely room to move around some of the booths, let alone take out a camera.
First off, the food: It was AWESOME. Artichokes French was worth the long line, and I am going to buy at least two bags of maple cotton candy next time around. I should have bought some of the spice packs from the olive oil sauce booth, and I’m regretting not doing that. Rich bought a pretzel and got maple and spicy honey mustard dipping sauces. The maple one made the pretzel taste just like a piece of french toast.
I’m not going to spend too much time talking about my purchases, so I’ll just post the photos I took afterwards, with captions for the yarn fibers and weight.
All in all, I totally loved Rhinebeck, although I do wish I actually knew people on Ravelry so I could meet up with them. I went to the Ravelry party for a few minutes, but it was fairly crowded, and again, I don’t know anyone.
Plans for next year: Maybe will book a motel room nearby, and take a spinning wheel class
