Clockwise, starting at top left: Shameka was bobble-icious! Deborah and Mary Beth were so cute in their matching Ursas, sister power rocks. That's me and the Ravelry mascot Bob, knitted and worn by Ysolda Teague (she made that with a friend in a week!). And good old Yarny Kim.
The Ravelry party did not produce any winners in our group again but I did kitchener the toe of my sock in the dark and cold, Shameka has a great photo of it (scroll down to the end of the post). My sweater was done just in time, I was frantically sewing the buttons on the morning that I left. Vivian was the "it" sweater at Rhinebeck, I saw so many of them there. It was vaguely deflating to see so many versions of it, but that also reaffirms what a cool pattern it is. The runner up "it" pattern was The Einstein Coat according to Kim. What was really great was to have Ysolda Teague (Vivian's designer) see the sweater herself even though she was in a knitted Bob costume at the time. The Twist Collective folks said how nice it looked too, very chuffing. Construction details on Ravelry.
Rhinebeck was a total feast for the senses, color and beautiful yarn everywhere. I think I was in too much of a yarn haze to get many pictures of the fair, but I did snap a picture of folks working on Big Sock. The goal of Big Sock is to be the world's largest knitted sock when it's done. Meanwhile it is traveling around the world and stopping at yarn shops and fiber events where anyone can knit on it. Still lots of knitting to be done.
