Below are some of our pictures from the day. I like to think of it as the pageantry of Rhinebeck. At the end of the post, I have a link to my ravelry favorites with what we saw over the weekend.
You can’t see it from here, but the mermaid had dangly earrings. No mermaid should be without them.
For the partygoer who would like to be handfree, wine cozy necklace thingys.
We enjoyed the fall foliage even though it was a cloudy day.
I had been lamenting the day before that I didn’t have a good tote bag for carrying around at Rhinebeck. No, don’t even say it. For those that know me, I have MANY bags. They just weren’t right AND I left them at home. Rhinebeck had a terrific tote bag with great pockets and this year’s logo.
Nancy and I ran into a dear family friend. How we always manage to just “run into” each other is a beautiful thing.
We saw a man in a kilt with great cabled kilt socks. It’s a thing, check it out.
Well, I did ask the question (what better way to unwind…)?After passing the strolling musician, we came upon these two ladies, tailgating. We thought this was BRILLIANT. We surreptitiously took a picture because we were SO doing this next time. They caught us, we all had a good laugh and chatted for a few minutes before we headed to our car. We were about to pull out of the parking lot when they invited us to join them. How awesome is that??? They were fully prepared with Halloween wine goblets, table clothes, candles, blankets, and chairs. Thankfully I had some nuts in the car. I had to bring a hostess gift. We spent a delightful two hours and left there having made two new friends. That to me is one of the joys of Rhinebeck. The people you meet are terrific.
Here is the link to the patterns we found interesting.
