Rhinebeck!

Truly a wonderful Rhinebeck year…good friends…good yarn and fibre…treats for everyone…

First of all, we spent the entire week before Rhinebeck making these little sample tags:

…however the person formerly known as “the Boy”, who now wishes to be referred to as the Squirrel Whisperer (I predict this will change very soon after he realizes there are no squirrels here), quickly came to the conclusion that knitters cannot live by yarn alone and would need TREATS!  Hence: treat bags to hand out at Rhinebeck!

(notice the Smarties…we tried to go for as much Can con as possible:  Coffee Crisp, Crispy Crunch, Smarties…)

Thank you to my “street team” (I feel so young and hip…) Stephannie, Elizabeth, Angela, Melanie, Sue, Molly, Emily and especially Keri, (who gets extra credit for wearing a freshly made-with-indigodragonfly-mcn sport cardigan, making her the most perfect billboard) who spread the treat bags far and wide.  I think this street team thing is going to expand very, very soon…

Memories of Rhinebeck 2009:

What do you think, Otis? Next year?
Canadians are fascinated by your very small ice cream…
…and really? Coke!  Now with vitamins and minerals!?
…but really it was the giggling over “Skinny Water” that almost got us kicked out of the grocery store.
lots of show and tell and knitting with friends

If you’re interested in purchasing any of my yarn and/or roving, please send me an email at indigodragonfly.K AT gmail.com (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating what you would like.  First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it.  I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off as soon as possible!  Shipping charges to the US will start at  $5 (1 skein of sock yarn) or $7 (1-2 batches of most rovings/1 -2 skeins of larger skeins of yarn).   Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval.  I will send you quotes for both surface and air mail shipping…just tell me which one you’d prefer.  Sound good?

Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked).  I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps.  Custom orders are always welcomed!  Just email me with what you have in mind.

Photography 101

When taking photos of your newly completed sweater, here are a few easy tips to follow:

1.  Your arms will never be long enough.

2.  It’s helpful to stand in FRONT of the camera

3.  After almost 3 straight weeks of rain, you may forget how to take photos in sunlight.

Of course, you may just want to refer to this as your “ethereal period.”

4.  Take another step to the left.  Trust me.

5.  Eventually, the law of averages will work in your favour.
