Rhinebeck: the stash

I was a busy girl this year! I bought some great yarns & some really beautiful buttons at Rhinebeck. Wanna see?

I’d never bought any yarns from Sanguine Gryphon before – every time I checked out their website I had timed it badly, so that the colors I liked were either sold out, or in quantities too low for sweater-making. I’ll be watching their website more closely from now on, I assure you!

The only other yarn I bought was from an indie producer called Blackberry Hill Farm.

They had some nice looking fleeces, but this yarn really caught my eye. This yarn looked handspun to me, but apparently it isn’t. Still, it’s beautifully made, long staple & it has that new-sheep smell. 😉

And finally, I also found some fantastic ceramic buttons from Melissa Jean Design. I have a hard time finding buttons that I actually like. At this booth, I had trouble making a final decision – I wanted them all!

I had a wonderful time at Rhinebeck & a fairly productive shopping trip, to boot. I can’t wait ’til next year. *sigh*
