Its been too long...

So its been awhile. The birthday celebrations and Rhinebeck seemed to have taken up a lot of my time SO I guess we have some catching up to do.

Birthday: so I got many presents for my birthday mostly knitting books and Jane Austen related books so I'm thrilled. I also got a new set of speakers for my ipod so we can listen to tunes in the den. Oh and the fifth season of Family Guy. I love that show. I was going to put up pictures of everything but there were so many little things it seems weird. Plus I have my last birthday dinner tonight so I still have a few more presents!

Rhinebeck: Mom and I went to Rhinebeck on Saturday for the first time. It was CRAZY! So many people and livestock and stalls. It was almost too much to take in. I did have a wonderful time and we're definitely going back next year AND it helped to get my mom back into knitting which is great.

What did I get at Rhinebeck? What didn't I get? My first purchase was very large handwoven basket with my birthday money from Grandma. And I mean large. I then proceeded to fill it with birthday gifts from mom (yarn and a swift), mom's purchases and my own purchases. Boy did it get heavy!!! And people had comments about my large basket everywhere I went. They all seemed to love it. At first I was getting scolded for not filling it quickly enough. I ran into those people later in the day and they were very proud of my progress. But it really did get heavy, I turned into mom's pack-mule by the end of the day but it was worth it.

On our way out we were interviewed by these people from, I think that was their name, apparently we caught their eye with our large basket of goodies. That was fun. Apparently our little clip might be out there in cyberspace soon. I'll let you all know when if it happens.

My favorite purchases have to be my knew Alpaca friend (see Anna now Mr. Paci had a friend in NY) and the swift. Thank you thank you thank you mom for the swift. Man is it great! SO here are my shots from Rhinebeck. I didn't get as many as I wanted because I think I was too distracted by well EVERYTHING to take pictures.Justify Full

Also I finally finished the purple jumper however its a little large in the bust area. It's almost as if I have wings under my arm pits so I have to try to make some adjustments. I should be able to fix the seaming so it fits better right? A little sewing maybe???
