Rhinebeck 2011–Everything Else!

Rhinebeck Bingo!  After charging through the first couple of buildings and just focusing on the yarn…I decided I need to look for Rav people for Rhinebeck Bingo!

Stitchy McYarnpants organizes it every year and it’s a blast to play!  And I ran into my first square!

DSC00929 This is knitterotica.  I must say, she just looks like a blast to know!

Men in kilts, I saw a few…

DSC00958 This is the group I sometimes join on Thursdays….they made very cool sparkly hats…Nutmeg Knitter and Wife”Mom” Knitter are part of this group. I got to meet Nutmeg’s little nutmeg…

Also at the meetup, I ran into the group I met at the hotel last year.  They actually came up and said hi and remembered me.  I’m always surprised when people remember me…So I saw Gingy and PeonyUnderhill, and Abby.

2 very cool things happened….one, I met Vanessa

DSC00960 She traveled from Australia…very cool!  We hung out for a bit and she got to meet Jess and Casey…yes I said hi too…

Two years ago I met Ann from Norway.  Love how Rav, has brought people from all over together….

I also won a hat!  StevenA was on my Bingo card and he said on his blog the first person to ask would receive a hat….So I saw him at the meetup and noone had asked yet, so yeah I won a hat! It’s cool, cuz it’s not a color I would pick, but will look good with jeans…


and then the Jack O’Lanterns
