Rhinebeck Posting: Better Late than Never!

So, I'm finally posting about Rhinebeck. I don't have many memories from it sharp in my mind, so I'll just let the photos speak.

Fiber on display:

This is probably my favorite fiber display photo. I think this vendor knew just what he or she was doing by putting these colors here:

(I always look at the marled yarn and never buy it! Why not? Next year, I'll make it a point to.)

I love how this one looks like a flower:

Enough of the fiber -- there were cute animals!

I love this llama -- her name's Madame Bianca and she was for sale!

She gives kisses too:

Speaking of kisses, some brazen hussy sheep tried to steal my husband:

There were other, less slutty animals:

I only kept this picture because the little kid wiping out in the background cracks me up:

These babydoll sheep were even cuter than they are in photos:

There were cute non-fibery (or, if it floats your boat, I suppose you could spin their fur) animals too:

100_1170

Then there were the cold-blooded critters who must have been frickin' FREEZING! I know I was!

At least the guy with the gators and snakes was indoors.

I like the skeptical kid on the far right in the gray sweatshirt. He had that face the whole time.

I know the haunted tunnel is cheesy, and I think we're the only adults who go through it, but I like it because I always get some good photos out of it:

Finally, there were the people:

I was late for the Ravelry meetup on the hill, so I didn't get into the photo. Notice the devil signs in the back -- those are some LSG-ers.

Speaking of LSG:

The Twatweasel is the official LSG mascot!

Jesh let me take her picture:

It must have been an attempt at a self-portrait, because that is clearly my schnozz in the lower left hand corner. Clearly.

We were pretty late for the Ravelry party, too, due to traffic and going out to dinner beforehand. We were there for about 90 minutes of raffle, complete with people shushing us if we talked. I wish we had been there earlier, but, truthfully, I'm not comfortable mingling at big parties. I'm much better in smaller groups, or one-on-one. I'm not the sort of person to go up to someone and introduce myself, although I wish I could be.


I'll leave you with a idyllic "Autumn-in-the-Northeast" photo. You can see all 150+ photos from Rhinebeck here:

Love your pics. You got some *really* great shots of the animalia. (Even the "less slutty animals," hee.)

We also enjoyed the haunted tunnel. A little suspended disbelief every now and again is good for the soul, I think.

Thanks for sharing your photos. I already can't wait till next year :)
