or my version of Rhinebeck Reads!
On Saturday I met Catherine Friend at Rhinebeck.
She wrote Sheepish. I’ve been wanting to read her book, Hit by a Farm, but have not ordered it from Amazon yet. I was very excited to meet her. I read her blog Farm Tales. The book is very funny and I am about 1/2 way through it.
Two years ago I met Anne Barclay Priest at Rhinebeck and bought her book, Trafficking in Sheep, which I have not finished. But reading Sheepish makes me want to pick it back up. She was not there this year, (but was last year), so I just went looking for her and she passed away last November. So last year was her last Rhinebeck. I’m privileged to have met her and have a signed copy of her book. If you’d like to read about this wonderful woman, here is an editorial about her.
The Yarn Harlot was there too. I could have been 12th in line, but decided I wanted to go shopping more than wait for her…it was almost a two hour wait. They were giving out numbers, but I figured I’d probably not come back.
The project is a quick hat I am crocheting for Stitches. I will be working in a booth on Friday. She has several knitted items, but not too many crocheted. I am making it from Mirasol Miski in Bluebell. It is a free pattern from here.
As always if you want to see me, please head to
