Rhinebeck 2009

Schedule is up on the website. I've been checking every couple of days and this is the first time I've seen 2009 schedule.

Are we going to see pictures

Are we going to see pictures of the purchases? Will there be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth as we jealously drool over your purchases?

Good for you! And you're

Good for you! And you're there today too so you have ample opportunity to melt the other half!

I had enough on Saturday, I spent nothing but cash though. I did pretty good at spending all I had with me though!

It was GREAT to see you!

So - I am told I will be in

So - I am told I will be in front of Building 'A' at noon thirty on Saturday; and at the Sheep to Shawl on Sunday High Noon. And I believe I will be KIP-ing at the Holdiy INN indoor patio sometime Saturday evening.

All else is subject to change.

Oh yeah; if you should happen to hear someone singing "Ghost Knitters in the Sky" it will probably be me....

When: Saturday, October 17th
Time: 2:00 - 300
Where: At the picnic tables in front of the food vendors

Please private message me if you think you’ll be able to meet us there.

I’m very excited about getting to see some of the guys in between retreats!

Giving this bump. Okay, so

Giving this bump.

Okay, so it's official, I'll definitely be going on Saturday. WillyG is travelling up to Albany to spend the weekend at my house and come to Rhinebeck too. We're really looking forward to your visit! We might be able to swing going to Rhinebeck both Saturday and Sunday if you're up for it. The Queen Anne's Lace has been mailed in and I can't wait to see how it does there.

Along with all of the guys I usually see each year (Mel & Dave, Jim, Joe, etc) I'm really looking forward to meeting some of the other guys from MWK too. Who else will be going?

I've been toying with taking

I've been toying with taking my vacation around Rhinebeck, but I don't think I can foot the bill to get up there and still find a place to stay. Because, of course, I can't bear to go for a measly four hours (as bus trips from 'around here' would do). My wish would be to take the Greyhound, but it gets sticky for the financially impaired.

Is anyone near the city willing and able to take in a fellow knitter for a night or two or three?

Even though I'm going to be

Even though I'm going to be having surgery just two weeks before, I still plan to go to Rhinebeck. May not drive, but I'll be there! Most likely on Saturday.

mine too. However I know at least three of my ren-faire friends will be attending....and I will probably have to attend a meet and greet for my other knitting group....(or suffer the consequences)
