Commonly known in knitting and spinning circles (no pun intended) as, Rhinebeck.  Deb and I set out at 7a.m. Saturday morning for our 2 hour drive.

Here we are within a half mile of the fairgrounds…this less than a half mile stretch  took over a half hour.  There are  almost a jillion cars that are already there, and this is less than a half hour after the gates opened.

Despite the number of cars it really wasn’t too crowded yet. In less than an hour Deb had already made a few purchases and in the picture below, wearing a beautiful orange sweater she made, she’s being enticed, and won over by…

and this basket to put everything in because almost everything matches it so how could she resist.

I myself might have made a purchase for someone’s upcoming birthday! Stay tuned in November to find out what it might be.

Rhinebeck is always fun even for a non-knitter like me.

We enjoyed the food… the sun, clouds, a couple of showers, the foliage and seeing  friends.

Happy and tired we start our journey home… bye Rhinebeck until next year.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
