Long weekending









I’ve been having such a lovely long weekend – friends, knitting, tv watching, great food. We’ve been canning so much the last couple of weeks, and there’s just a couple more things on our list before apple season starts to arrive. In anticipation of fall (ignoring the 30+ degree weather), we also made a pumpkin loaf (recipe from Back to Her Roots) and it was delicious. We used regular whole wheat flour, plain yogurt, and subbed brown sugar for the maple syrup.

I’ve also picked back up my Aidez cardigan, and between brunch and some tv with H, I’ve gotten most of one of the front panels done. The reason I’ve picked this back up is because I might be going to Rhinebeck (NY Sheep and Wool)! I am super excited even though it’s still over a month away – I’ve been planning my sweaters, perusing the vendor and class lists, and reading lots of recaps. Are you going? Any tips or suggestions for first timers?

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!


  1. Oh, that’s so exciting about Rhinebeck! I’ve only been twice, but if you’re after anything from Jennie the Potter… run fast! The lineup is virtually instant. Also get there early for both parking and entry line-waiting reasons. Last year was bananas! (Oh, and save room for cider donuts!)

  2. Beautiful photos! The bounty this year has been amazing here too! I am envious of your potential Rhinebeck trip!

  3. every year I chicken out of going to rhinebeck because I don’t like crowds. I would like to think that one day I would go though….are you going as a vendor or as a shopper?
