The next morning we headed out bright and early to Rhinebeck!!! Jess took some great pictures of the trip there.
We made it in pretty quickly and I sprinted to the Miss Bab's booth. Thanks to our friend Yana getting in line for me, and a woman giving me a skein out of her hand I got one of the Rhinebeck 2014 exclusive colorway skeins! We then headed to Into the Whirled, where I got some Falkland Fiber to try out. So in less than 30 minutes I had gotten all the yarn and fiber that were on my list. The rest of my haul included a Sheep Incognito print! I have been wanting one of these and now that I have a craft room I decided to get one.
While Jen and Yana made a mad dash to Miss Bab's, I ran to the bathroom. When I made it to the booth, Jen had already grabbed the Polydactyl Set for me that she knew I wanted. I purchased the Coffee Break set so I could make a tubularity.

I participated in a recent Kickstarter for Going Gnome and received a cute hedgehog kit. So I was eager to stop by their booth and see all the new packaging. I came home with a little mushroom home kit, it is an advanced kit so I plan to do the hedgehogs first and see how that goes hehe
One of the most fun parts of Rhinebeck is meeting knitters from around the world. I was super excited to run into the ladies from the Must Stash Podcast!

I even managed to get a skein of the awesome Must Stash yarn. It is self-striping, Martian Rainbow #12. I cannot wait to knit it up!
When I ran into Stacie from Must Stash, I asked her if she had a booth so I could try her yarn. She didn't have a booth, but she had a few skeins on her to sell. I purchased a skein of the coveted Dark Side of the Moon and am really looking forward to knitting a pair of socks with it soon.

We ran into other fabulous knitting friends, but I do not have the pictures on my phone. It almost feels like a reunion every year. I am also proud of myself that I remembered to get a pic with Jess! We go to these events together and have very few pictures together.
