Finally got around to going through my photos, and came across this one from my last day at Stash, one last one of the girls together. Its making me feel a little nostalgic.


Fast forward to Rhinebeck, and the reunion has begun!


Nathalie and I had a blast, and it was great to see Alice.

When I told Nathalie that I was moving back to CT, we decided right away to make the trip to Rhinebeck. We thought it would be good to have something to look forward to. Took a couple of great classes as well. On Saturday it was "A rainbow of natural dyes". We learned how to dye with indigo, and cochineal (basically bugs!). Here is a little sneak at what we dyed during the morning.


Of course I left with some supplies to do a bit of dying. I am thinking of trying it out on the burner of the bbq. More about that to come of course. Sunday was "How to dye yarn guaranteed not to stripe". Here is Nathalie hard at work.


and the finished products. Needless to say, I left with lots of dyes and undyed wool to work on!


Can't leave without a photo of this guy...

Oh My

I guess I had better start writing something now that Majorknitter has mentioned me on her blog! Haven't been doing much knitting with the move and all, but starting to get moving again. Next week Nathalie and I will be taking the trip to Rhinebeck. Hope to have some good pics for that , as well as the demolition of our old house to make way for the new! See you soon!
