Stash Enhancement

There are a lot of very fun ways to enhance your stash, but I have to confess that topless men might just be the most entertaining.

I am about to stick my head in the virtual sand when it comes to knitting. I've printed off a hat pattern, and I've got my scarf and socks to work on. Hopefully they will be enough to keep me away from Ravelry and the knitting blogs that I follow until this weekend is over. Everyone is getting ready for Rhinebeck, and I am not going. I remember reading about everyone's Rhinebeck excitement last year and wondering if I would ever be 'in to knitting' enough to hit up an event like that. This year I read about the sweaters people knit just to wear there, and who's packing what projects and which authors will be signing their new books. I'm 'in to it.' I want to go, and I'm less than two hours away! I am just not in a position to be able to go to the festival this year, let alone buy any of the stuff I can just imagine I will be coveting while I am there. So instead of making the quick jaunt to upstate NY, I am going to pretend that it is really more of a fleece thing and I won't appreciate it since I'm not a spinner. (I am warning you... nobody is allowed to correct me on this for the next 3 days!) I am going to avoid any of the tempting reports from Rhinebeck until Monday when it is too late for me to hitch a ride and try to sneak in.

For those of you going... I want to hear all about it. Tell me details, take lots of pictures... just don't expect to hear from me until next week.

I'm going to Rhinebeck, and I'll take pictures. If there are any men with shirts off, I'll snap some extra shots just for you. ;-) Especially the big, burly ones who are carrying several sheep under their arms!

That is fantastic! It is about time I become an equal opportunity oogler. Besides I think June might be a little too young. Thankfully he has color work to eye up instead :).
