This is the first year that I haven't gone to Rhinebeck. I have mixed feelings about it - I WANT to go, to just sit around and watch the people, to eat the tasty fair food and oogle (and buy!) yarn. But I have so much yarn! And I would like to use my money to pay off all that student loan debt... and I'm sick.
Still, I tried desperately to find an excuse to go. Several friends are busy this weekend; some didn't return my texts. Some are sick like me! I couldn't find anyone to meet up with. I couldn't think of any books I wanted to have signed or to buy.
So, I spent the weekend at home taking it easy. But I still wanted to get some nice yarn.
I ordered it from Revelations of a Delusional Knitter's online shop, here. I got it about a week ago, but I figured I would save it for when I needed a pick-me-up. So yesterday I opened it up and oogled the pretty yarn inside.
The colorway is Reeses, but it reminds me more of fall colors. I think the photos capture the color really well, one of those oranges is a little more pink, but overall it's pretty good.
I can't wait to make some fall socks for myself!
