The notions at Rhinebeck or the rest of the haul!

There were a few small things I needed to replace, and at least one goodie I likes and got.. There were also a few things I didn’t get because the vendors were out! But I plan to get them!

Along with the yarn from Briar Rose I got a great button.

I plan to pull a Kohler of knitting and ‘knit a sweater around this button!’ Which is kinda funny because as I was looking through them someone in the booth said.. ‘What would you buy a button then knit a sweater around it?’ I giggled.

Then a little sheep measuring tape and a needle gauge to replace mine.

I got those from the Carodan Farm booth. Nice people! You will remember my vintage wrap was made from their worsted yarn! They were delighted to see that I was wearing their yarn! (oooh looks like they are having a knitting retreat!)

An Addi needle so I can actually make the Morehouse Merino Fiddlehead scarf that I bought a kit for last year. And just how do I ask could I resist those Lobster Mitts? OI! I think they might just be my travel knitting when I head to Vegas next week!

I wanted to get some snap closures for a little quick knit bag but the vendor had run out of them so I am working on getting them by email!

Azia got some more needle felting supplies, she always manages to get me to spend some money on her!

The Yarn at Rhinebeck..

Yep you all just come here for the yarn.. I know… So here is my haul from Rhinebeck.

Some Tahki Creole out of a few bib boxes of ‘vintage’ yarn. I intended to make myself a Luxe tunic with this..

 Tahki Creole Yarn


  1. I don’t know if it is enough yarn
  2. It is bulky rather than worsted so I may need to do some math!!

We will see it might become another sweater that I can wear against my skin!! Like Tubey!!

Now we come to the obligatory Briar Rose purchase.. I keep buying their yarn, and knitting with it.. ripping it out and then setting it aside.. not that I don’t like it. I just need to find the perfect project I think.. But I love it!!

Briar Rose Yarn

I saved the best for last.. Please.. just don’t tell my husband how much I spent on this little gem. 


I decided it was time for me to get myself some luxury yarn! I am also hoping that it will be all it is supposed to be:

  • very warm
  • very light
  • hypoallergenic

With emphasis on the last point!!

Next up the notions, and Azia’s haul of course!!
