My first trip to Rhinebeck ! What a beautiful day & what an amazing group of people. Seeing hundreds of people walking around in their hand knits was so inspiring! I want to knit ALL THE THINGS!

I got to meet knitting royalty :) Wendy, Diane and Aimee
Each one gracious and friendly being interrupted by a starstruck groupie.
Best of all Amy Herzog soooo generously took the time to take my measurements (along with many others)! I cannot wait to cast on my first Custom Fit sweater! I am soooo looking forward to her class in December.
I ordered a Rhinebeck 2013 mug from Jennie the Potter!
And purchased beautiful yarn from Miss Babs (for a color affection)  and Fiber Optic (for my custom fit sweater).
There was wine tasting and wine purchasing. What a way to spend a beautiful autumn day!

Looks like it's Socktober to me!

 Nothing like some spooktacular sock yarn kits to stir up the pot for some Socktober knitting! Above is my "Toe-Up" sock yarn kit from MSKiKnits at Single Handed Knits who has orchestrated the greatly anticipated Sock the Vote KAL! Check out the beautiful bag she made! It traveled all the way from Hawaii to New Jersey!!
and below.... a kit that's right up my alley! The colorway... "Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun" of course!
