Love love love: “Rhinebeck Style” by Gale Zucker. In 2010 and 2012 Gale put up a backdrop at Rhinebeck and asked knitters if they wished to pose in front of it for pictures. Knitters, as they do, obliged, and this fantastic slide show, set to very appropriate music, was born. So much wonderful eye candy. I kept pausing it to see the individual pieces.
I’m lucky enough to have a few of these original patterns – and a 1960s vintage catalog – in my library, acquired from my husband’s elderly relatives. I’ve blogged about this, and I get a request at least once a month from a knitter seeking out the patterns.
And if you’re on the eastern seabord of the US, consider the Blended Threads workshop in Maryland, lead by author Deborah Robson. The focus of the retreat is fiber, and the weekend will be spent preparing, spinning, playing with and working with all sorts of fibers. Sounds most wonderful.
