rhinebeck ladies

I’m always forgetting to take photos with people at Rhinebeck. Forgetting to or too shy to ask? I never have proof of what I was wearing and who I was hanging out with! Well, Erin snapped a great photo of Ashpags, Amander, and me! Thanks, girl! I didn’t have time to make a Rhinebeck sweater (I never have and that bums me out!) so I wore my Hurrication sweater. Nothing starts your morning off better than walking into the kitchen in a house full of knitters and getting those “oohs” and “ahhs!”

>> Someone ought to revoke my nerd card because I only just discovered the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast. This episode about the invention of the sewing machine was very interesting. I imagine that the 19th century was full of patent frauds, curly mustaches, and tricky con artists/serial killers.

>> I’m loving this commercial with knitting Ashton Kutcher.

>> The (very brief) history of sheep at the White House. They’ve got bees now, maybe they ought to bring these guys back! Let’s start a petition.

>> Threadpanda’s Rhinebeck recap. Those photos. Yum.

>> The Stashbot app is out and already in the top 25 apps in the App Store! Very excited to have this tool on hand!

>> This article’s made the rounds but it’s worth sharing again. The true cost of a knitting pattern.

>> Missing Outlander? Buzzfeed’s got your Outlander wardrobe knitting fix.

>> Looks like this sheep was trying to follow me home from Rhinebeck. Sorry for the delays, everyone! (Imagine Homeward Bound but with a sheep, alpaca, and goat?! Let’s make this movie.)

    That sweater is just the best. Glad I finally get to see it on you. xxx

    Re: sheep at the White House in the 1920s. Imho, making automobiles illegal and expanding White House lawns would have been a better option than getting rid of the sheep. Very impressed with the funds raised for the Red Cross from selling wool. It would be a booming business these days!
