Random : Rhinebeck purchases 2011


What did I buy at Rhinebeck? I wish I could've buy more, but hey, yarn budget. We all know what it's like. I'm usually a buyer with a purpose, and having none on site, I decided to stay logical: fingering or lace weight yarn that can be knit into so many things.

I laid my hands on a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock heavyweight in the Swamp Goblin colorway. A generous 198g/350yds skein, enough for a nice, long pair of socks.


I discovered MissBabs' "Yummy Monochrome" sockweight yarn and couldn't help but buy one skein in beachglass colorway. Another pair of socks, I suppose?


The last skein (yes, only three skeins...) was a real surprise. I went to their stand at least four times. I just couldn't decide. At last, I fell in love with a skein of Mocha's Fiber Design Lita Laceweight yarn, 80% Extrafine Merino/20% Silk in the Lauren colorway. Love love love her yarn.

Very lovely acquisitions! I also scored with Miss Babs. BUT HERE"S MY QUESTION .... where did you find Blue Moon? They weren't listed as vendors. I am so sad that I missed them!
