Nope, I know it's not true. Sure, I'm on the couch suffering from a cold - but it can't be from Rhinebeck, can it? Ah well, even if my cold was caused by Fiber Overload, it was worth it! Here's a quick rendition of my day, in pictures.
The ride up is always nice, with little traffic and wonderful scenery.
First stop (after a frantic run to the Ladies Room after drinking a large coffee on the way up) was The Fold booth, and it's wall of Socks That Rock!!
I managed to find a few that wanted to come home with me.
Where to go next? I know, lunch!! Mmmm, pierogies. My Polish knitting grandmother would approve!
We saw this little bunny. He was so cute I was tempted to bring him home with us.
The rest of the afternoon? Yarn, yarn . . .
And some wine tasting for Sweetpea. You don't think he goes to Rhinebeck for the yarn, do you?
And now, I'm stuck on the couch with a stuffy head, a sore throat, and plenty of aches. So does yarn and fiber cause colds? Maybe it does. But I don't mind. I simply take a look at the skeins that followed me home . . .
What other knitters did I bump into in my travels? Details on my February Lady Sweater? More about all the yarn I bought? Let's save that for next time - after I've had more chicken soup and rest.
