I'm back from a wonderful trip to Rhinebeck. It was great to be back on the East Coast while it was at its finest. I was there to sign my brand new book Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads: A Modern Knitter's Guide to Exploring and Discovering Style, but I did manage to take a few laps around the fairgrounds.
I found all my usual favorites, adorable outspoken sheep, delectable fried foods and happy, happy knitters. This time I channeled my inner Garance Doré and took quick snapshots of my favorite style moments. They weren't always handknit or even knit but they all celebrated wool, fiber and fun. Some standout trends were mixed media scrap projects, vintage inspired Americana, classics gone neon and art yarn as jewelry, the last one completely bolstered by spinning instructor and imagination ignitor Esther Rodgers. I was remiss in not getting people's names so speak up in the comments if you spot yourself or a friend (I DID let them all know I'd be posting their amazing knits on my blog). Enjoy!
