Rhinebeck and life....

I have to admit, my Saturday trip to Rhinebeck was not my first one. I went there already twice in the previous years. Each trip was unique and interesting in its own way.

This year I stumbled upon the Ravelry meet on the hill by accident. I saw Jessica, one of the founders of Ravelry and spoke to her very briefly. I saw many fellow knitters and their fabulous knitted projects. I also visited the book store and spoke to some of the authors who were attending and had their books for sale. I bough few things, and returned back home with many pleasant memories.

It was a wonderful trip and the weather couldn't be more pleasant, sunny and warm, with a hint of fabulous peak colors of New England foliage. I will definitively visit the festival again, though it might be few years before my next visit.

Since one of the books I purchased is named Slow Knitting, I have decided to try to live by the words, at least for a day.....
Sunday - knitting
Sunday  - reading about knitting 
Sunday - garden, and the end of slow knitting day.
Just in case if you are wondering, the vegetable on left is kohlrabi, and we usually harvest them in the early days of spring, so it was a nice surprise to find one still hiding in our garden. This year we tried to grow cabbage, but somehow it turned out to be rather a meal for the caterpillars instead for us. This little cabbage head survived and will be served for dinner as a salad.

Thank you for visiting.
