So this past weekend I went on a trip to attend the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck NY. I flew out of Regina with my knitting buddy Katherine. We picked up Leanne from NB in Toronto and flew to Albany NY. Janie and Patricia from Kansas met us at the airport. They took us grocery shopping at Trader Joe's. I wish we had one here.

The best was exploring the fair with my IBK buddies. We hit up the Rav meet up on the hill and I found podcasters that I adore like Leslie and Laura from the Knitgirllls and Carin from Round the Twist and the Deborah and Melanie from The Savvy Girls. I ate a deep fried pickle (interesting) and posed for pictures with my gnomies. Saw Stephen West from afar and went all fan girl in my head. I might have squeaked out loud, shoulda, shoulda, shoulda went and met him, he was so adorable. I saw the Yarn Harlot walk by with her entourage and I had to grab Suzanne to stay upright. It was really fabulous.

I know there are girls I met that I will see again. I have to because, they were that awesome (said in my best NY accent like Suzanne). We have a flickr group where you can see more pictures of our weekend if you'd like. And as always Itty Bitty Knits is an open friendly group on Ravelry, so if you knit, crochet, weave, spin, dye yarn, etc... check us out!
