"Yarnbeck" bound!!!

Apparently, the excitement over Rhinebeck has gone straight to my brain. A few weeks ago, I accidentally called it "Yarnbeck", so Pea and I have been referring to it that way every since.

Pea is not quite as excited as I am, although he perked up a little when Elizabeth mentioned that there would be a wine tasting there. Here is our conversation from yesterday:

Pea: You can drop me off at the wine bar and look at yarn as long as you want.
What I thought I said: You would really stay at the wine bar and send me out all alone?
Pea (laughing): Do you know what you just said?
What I thought I said again: Yes, I said You would really stay at the wine bar and send me out all alone?
Pea (laughing even harder): Do you know you called it the "yarn bar" both times?

Okay, I could swear I said wine bar, not yarn bar. But Pea insists I said yarn bar, and I can always tell when he's lying. He wasn't lying. I'm obsessed.

I'm also a square. If I can get my computer to recognize my camera again, I'll take a picture of myself to help you out. In case I can't, here's the most recent one I have.

My hair is a bit shorter now. I'm not sure what I'm wearing yet, aside from jeans. And I'll be carrying an I'm A Square bag. Hope to see ya there!!

i'm not so sure that a yarn, i mean, WINE bar is such a good idea when knitters and yarn are in the same place.

Cathy said...

I'm sorry I won't be there :( But you have a great time!

I have to admit, I read your post and it took me a while to realize that you had said yarn bar instead of wine bar! lol I guess my brain must be a wee bit muddled also :)

Anonymous said... can leave Pea at the Wine bar....And you can leave ME at the yarn bar! lol

Have lots of fun..take lots of piccies!!

I love that you said "yarn bar". I frequently accidentally insert the word yarn where it's not supposed to go. I'm glad I'm not the only one. A yarn bar does sound like a really tempting idea though...

wine? yarn? wine? yarn? wine? yarn?
2 of my favorite things, maybe I should open a wine/yarn bar....hmmmmmmm --- though
The Yarn Bar is a great name for a knitting store, don't you think?

I know, I know, I know. I had no problems traveling to Vermont or Virginia to get yarn, but I cannot make Rhinebeck! AUGH. Please pet lots of yarn for me!
