On sucking less

The knitting internets have been gathering momentum the past few weeks. There have been countdowns tossed around on Twitter, SQUEE IN ALL CAPS, excitement over packing and things to knit. Rhinebeck approacheth. I am lucky enough to be attending for the 4th year in a row, and it is always a good time with knitterly […]

What comes of not having a plan

Exhaustion is starting to become a theme around these parts. Now that the term is in full swing I’m starting to feel it, and even though in a couple of weeks I know I’ll start to turn that corner when the end is near and I get a burst of energy back, right now it […]

If you can find a group of people

Here I sit this morning, enjoying some of Manhattan’s fine caffeine and free wireless, pondering the happenings of the weekend, regretting my return to the real world, envying all these stylish New York women who breeze around elegantly in their wool coats and tall boots and brilliant handbags and wondering what sort of effort it […]

Somewhere in there I bought yarn

Re-entry after a knitting/touristing weekend is always hard. On the one hand, it’s fantastic to be back in my own bed, my own routine, and even work is comforting in its own way. On the other hand, after all the intense exposure to yarn, patterns, friends, and all the beautiful hand-knits that were out walking […]

Please stand by

After experiencing empirical evidence (once again) of the failing combination of Air Canada/Newark Airport, I am home after some delay but did at the very least use my time on flight delays to snag some photos off of my camera! At home now, in between gulps sips of vodka cold straight vodka a refreshing beverage […]

Soon. Soon.

In 2 more sleeps I will be on my way to New York City, to the waiting and generous spare bed of my knitting pal Rebecca, then on Saturday it will be off to the New York Sheep and Wool festival, aka Rhinebeck. Wait, there’s something missing in that description, what was it…oh yeah: WOO […]

Shiver me timbers

(The internets tell me today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Yarr, mateys). I’ve been having one of those weeks where I want to knit everything. Like, everything. Only willpower is standing between me and casting on for three more sweaters, two shawls, and four pairs of socks right this very minute. It’s that sort […]

Making the most of it

I discovered today that one piece of my Rhinebeck experience that I had totally forgotten about – being captured on camera by the LetsKnit2gether podcast – has now hit the airwaves😉 So if you head over there you can see about 30 seconds of me in the blogger meetup segment. But more than that (because […]

You’re a nummy treat

How could I have left out the important part of Rhinebeck – the purchases? Right you all were to harass me. Well, let me tells ya – after this weekend it’s going to have to be lean times around here at Knitting to Stay Sane, but I have no regrets on my purchases and I […]

Let me ‘splain. No, there is too much…

…let me sum up: YAY RHINEBECK YAY. I’m sure the blogosphere is already flooded with Rhinebeck posts, and um…this is another one. And one from a newbie Rhinebeck-er at that. So this’ll be a post with lots of photos and I may ramble a little bit. I flew down on Friday and met up with […]
