Of Rhinebeck and a Contest!!

This is my 100th post!  I shyly started this blog back in April, a little unsure about what I would have to say.  It turned out to not be nearly as difficult as I thought it would be, and I have met many kind people who share my obsession.  In honor of my 100th post, and as a way of saying thank you for stopping by, I've decided to have a contest.  Just make a comment to this post, and I will randomly select a winner.  (That is, DD#1 & DD#2 will pull a name out of a hat.) The prize will be some of the yarn I dyed earlier this week to match my Toad Lilies. I'll also throw in a few little goodies, yet to be determined - most likely something I find at Rhinebeck.  So don't be shy, just comment, and you could win some YARN!


For those of you who have me on your Rhinebeck Bingo card, here's a photo of what I'll be wearing.  You'll most likely find me rolling around in a big pile of yarn.  I'll also be at the Meet Up.


Sorry about the bad photo.  It was raining, poor light.  That's my Swallowtail Shawl which in reality is a deep mossy green, a green mohair cardi, and of course, the requisite Blogger Bingo tote.  If you want to see a photo of me, there's one here.

Last year a friend of mine started a drawing group in his studio-barn.  It is a lovely space, with wonderful light.  We all chip in a little money to pay for the model, and spend the morning drawing.  He's a college painting and drawing professor, but this is his time to concentrate on his own work, so there is no instruction.  Just watching him work and viewing his art which is all around us in the studio, is inspiration enough.  Here's my favorite of the drawings I did today.  Again, poor light = crappy photo and the image is too large for my scanner.


Have a wonderful weekend.

I love that cardi. It's the greens, I think. Have a lovely time this weekend and remember to look before you start rolling in yarn. Someone else might be in there already. ;^)

Yay!!! 100 posts!!! It'll be your blogiversary before you know it. Enjoy Rhinebeck....sniff, sniff, wish I could go.

YOU have a wonderful weekend at Rhinebeck.

Congrats! Really enjoy your blog. Have fun at Rhinebeck...I'm copying you and saving all of my change and hopefully can go next year! The Rhodie Gus socks stalled because of a dropped stitch, it wasn't pretty, but I'm plugging along.

Congrats on the 100th post!! I can't even keep track of how often I post. (I'm pretty sure I missed my blogversary ages ago)

I love that Toad Lilies yarn, and congrats on the 100th post.

i'm honestly not trying to win a prize; i just wanted to comment on how much i like the green :)
happy blogiversary! i was well over 100 posts by my 1 yr, but i tend to delete posts periodically just as routine maintenance.
have fun at rhinebeck!

Have fun at Rhinebeck. I'm jealous of all you people getting to go and play Rhinebeck Bingo!

Congratulations not only on your 100th posting but also on your multi-talents. I would SO love to be able to draw, and I love your drawing plus your gorgeous hand-painted yarn. You're one talented woman!

I am posting but if I win you will have to wait until Sockret Pal is over to send me my prize!Congrats on #100!

Congratulations on your 100th post. I love the Swallow Tail Shawl. Pretty color. And also love the new sock yarns. Gorgeous color combination!

Have fun at Rhinebeck!

Congratulations on your 100th blog post! Have a great time at Rhinebeck!

Yeah, 100 posts!! I would have left a comment even without a contest. :) Did you say YOU drew that picture? Before I finished reading your post, I just figured the professional artist drew it. You do wonderful work. See you tomorrow!!

Happy Blogiversary!
Have a fantastic time at Rhinebeck!!!

That is such a great drawing! I took two drawing courses and I swear my drawings still look like stick figures.

Fantastic work and have a great time at Rhinebeck!

Happy 100th post!

What a lovely drawing.

Can't wait to meet you tomorrow!

You are one of my squares!!! See you tomorrow! :) I look forward meeting you! :)

Congrats on the 100th post!! I am an avid reader of your blog. Great drawint too!! Makes me want to pick up charcoal again. :)

you constantly amaze me. I had no idea you could draw..and you're really good. Like Karen, I at first thought the drawing had been done by your friend.

Congrats on your 100th post and have a great time at Rhinebeck. I am so looking forward to hearing about everyone's adventures.

Ooh, the colors of that yarn are gorgeous. I'll gladly enter the contest. :-)

So many folks have been asking me to help them to identify me at Rhinebeck tomorrow. Geez, I have no idea what I'll be wearing because, as you know, the weather here in Jersey is absolutely unpredictable.

I think, I'll be wearing a black turtleneck sweater.
