Rhinebeck again.  Our weather at Rhinebeck for the most part was milder and dryer than here at home, beside Georgian Bay.  But Sunday it changed.  Although still sunny and dry, the temperature dropped and a cool breeze brought out everyone's  woolies.  Perfect attire for a wool festival. Here are a few of the most fabulous that stopped by our booth.

The lady in the Norwegian ski sweater below, told us she scored the sweater at her local Good Will for $12.  She was very proud.  Her friend's hat is fabulous.

This knitter is wearing a  Cameo, one of Shelridge Yarn's latest pattern releases in gorgeous colours.

The last minute knitter  below,  sewed in her ends before leaving her hotel for Sunday's show.  This is  a Vogue pattern she said.  Fabulous, fabulous, sweater coat.

I loved how this knitter had a scarf that matched her sweater.  She knit  the sweater and a friend knit the scarf for her as a birthday gift.

This fellow, wearing his wife's knitting, I had to chase after and ask if I could take his picture.  Hand knit hat, Inspira Cowl that used up all the leftovers in her stash, the wife said and a hand knit sweater.  I should have checked his socks.

Below is  my favouirte knit 'view' of the show.  These knitters - look how young they are - met on ravlery, discovered they all live in the same area, formed a knitting club and now get together regularly to knit.  They decided to knit the same sweater pattern and all wear that sweater to Rhinebeck.  Isn't  that a wonderful story?

GinaC. - Thanks, Brenda...must have been a hoot manning (personning?) that booth! Such a neat stripey-girls story!

Hope you're enjoying sun over your way today - there's gorgeous sun here, a little rare over the last few weeks.
