A Rhinebeck recap

Rhinebeck14-1

I’ve definitely had a lot to digest over the last week and a half since coming back to Life After Rhinebeck. The weekend of the New York Sheep & Wool Festival has always been this happy exhaustion, where I stay up way too late with friends I haven’t seen in a year, or have just met for the first time off Ravelry, and then spend my days pretending I’m not going to shop, but leaving the fairgrounds with bags that are way heavier than when I came in.

My Saturday started off as it did for many, many people, in the Jennie the Potter Line. I never actually intend to wait in the line, but usually end up doing it anyway. It is a really fantastic people-watching spot, and I did actually end up snagging one of the mini dinosaur cups, which later in the weekend I ended up leaving with a friend who I’m sure wanted it more than I did.

I don’t think I could have asked for a more wonderful weekend, except if there was a way to get 8 hours of sleep and a Jennie the Potter mug…
