My Rhinebeck wish list is as follows:
Bijou Basin Ranch
Mainly to see the Outlander inspired yarns.
Because I love their yarn and the only local person who sells it is not my favorite place to go.
Green Mountain Spinnery;
They have wonderful, crunchy* yarns. I may not buy anything because I still have yarn I purchased from them last year (and the year before that), but I love looking.
I love this yarn, despite the fact that I haven't knit with it. I think it's the colors and the crunchy* factor.
Into the Whirled
I know I've seen their yarn before, but I want to take a closer look this time.
Jennie the Potter
Even though I've never bought from her, her stuff is amazing and maybe this year, I can pick up an ornament or something.
THIS yarn I love and I've made a scarf I love out of her Polwarth Silk and am half way through a Wingspan in a gorgeous blue/green yarn. I will definitely buy yarn from her. Definitely.
I love her buttons, but I think I'm only buying stitch markers this time. Some more for me, but mostly for my knitting friends' Christmas gifts. Love them!!
Similar to Hope Spinnery, I love the colors, the fact that they dye with sea water, and the crunchy* factor.
*When I say crunchy, I mean the yarn feels homespun and rustic, but in a good way, if that makes sense.
Truly, this is the year I need to be careful with my money, as I don't have a lot of it and I already own a RIDICULOUS amount of yarn. So this list is to help me focus on keeping my acquisitions under control. After all, the experience of the festival is really enough of a thrill; I truly don't need to load up, especially since I get to go fairly often. This will be my fourth time and I'm just as excited as I was the first time!!! And I love that I get to share the experience with my daughter. That makes it extra special.
