6 Days on the East Coast

I have been back several days from my whirlwind 6 days in New York and CT and here is a very photo heavy and word light synopsis:

Steve, my brother, and Hannah, my niece

Amanda and me

Amanda in her apartment

Out to dinner

Train to Westport

Angie and me in SONO (South Norwalk)

Drawbridge up to let sailboat cruise through

Visting with my former back door neighbors

Reunion Class of 1968- Norwalk High School.
Hedy and Me (see my feather and fan shawl!!!)
Arlene, Reggie and Keith

Hedy and Jill


Arlene and Joe (not a couple)
Ed and Joan (yes a couple)

Peaceful Knitter I read Sonia's blog and she reads mine! Check hers out!
at the Ravelry Meetup

Jess and Casey of Ravelry fame! Either they are very tall or I am very short!

My purchases!!!
Green fiber from Briar Rose Fibers is 17 oz of BFL, and the rose color is from Creatively Dyed yarns: 8 oz of Merino and Seaweed yarn.
My first try at silk Hankies for spinning
Now I can see what all the fuss is about with Socks That Rock. Also, buttons for my
February Lady Sweater

Two Bosworth spindles: Midi in Cherry and Mini in Canarywood

Visiting with Marion

Walking the beach and jetty

Beautiful Fall Colors

Details to follow when I have the energy to post more. The change of scenery was wonderful, both the water and colors, family and old friends, but with the economy tanking, it only took a few minutes for the good feelings I had while away to vanish once I arrived back home.
I did finish the pair of socks!!

Welcome back! Looks like you made out with good booty from Rhinebeck. Looking forward to hearing more about your travels.

You look great in your shawl!
It seems you all had a great time at the reunion. Walk on the beach, a day with fellow yarnies and the beautiful fall leaves. You can't go wrong!

Looks like you had a wonderful trip! I can't wait to see what you do with the roving from Creatively Dyed... I met Dianne this weekend at SAFF (fiber fest in NC) and her stuff is beautiful.
