Whirlwind Tour

Last spring when we were talking about Fiber Frolic, I threatened to drag Lisa to Rhinebeck. I promptly forgot all about this, and so did she, until I was looking through old email a couple of weeks ago. Rather than simply let sleeping dogs lie, I promptly emailed Lisa, who promptly agreed that of course she had to come to Rhinebeck. So she drove for three hours down to my house yesterday, and I flung her and Miss B into the car at an ungodly hour this morning and drove to the fairgrounds, arriving a bit later than we'd planned but before the STR ran out.

Lisa is a trouper, obviously, with remarkable adaptive abilities.

She met Beth...

and Franklin.

We tried to figure out how these irises got confused.

I failed to crack under enormous pressure to buy Miss B a bunny. (Look at that face. How could I resist that face? Only through years of practice.)

For Sandy, who is ten feet away as I write.

There was so much more I cannot even begin to tell you, especially if I expect to post this while it's still technically Saturday. Tune in tomorrow when we return for day two of the adventure.


  • Miss B is growing up into a beautiful young woman. I can't believe how much older she looks from the last time I saw her.

    I'm glad everyone is having a good time! I will sit here and look at my two skeins of STR, coiled beautifully in one of the bowls that was a centerpiece at my wedding. :)

  • I think I must have walked right past you at some point because I remember seeing a young lady spinning on a hitchhiker and thought she looked remarkably like Miss B.

  • It was a lovely day. I'm glad I ran into you.

  • You met Franklin? Oh, you have been in the presence of genius!

    The kid has the appealing face down pat. She could be a poster child for anything and bring in big, BIG bucks! The smile only a hardened mother could deny.

  • Fiber festivals are great. I've always wondered why we have ours in August, when it's so hot and humid. It would be so nice to pet woollies in cooler weather.

  • Oh, Miss B, you were so close!
