This past weekend, I spent two days in Rhinebeck hanging out at the NY Sheep and Wool festival. To say it is the event of the knitting season might be putting it lightly. What can I say that hasn’t been said before? The weekend was awesome. It was even more awesome that I didn’t have any […]
It’s that time again! Time for Rhinebeck! I’m busy making last minute preparations, charging up the camera, and packing way too many knitting projects!

This project has been a tough one to keep under wraps, but I’m so excited to be able to finally share this with you! I was honored to be contacted by Ysolda to design a sweater for her newest project, The Rhinebeck Sweater almost 2 years ago. Even though I was in full book knitting […]

What does everyone want to know? What was your haul at Rhinebeck of course! I walked away pretty light this year. I purchased an alligator scarf kit from Morehouse and 5 skeins of natural colored wool from Maple Creek Farms. The alligator was cast on immediately after walking in the door on Saturday night. It’s […]
