If you were in Rhinebeck last weekend, you no doubt saw this lady -- probably more than once. Striking. Even if you'd never be caught dead wearing this hat, you've got to admire the creativity and workmanship -- reminds me a little of stegosaurus bumps -- and the colors were just gorgeous. Well, -I- thought so. Maybe it's because I don't wear hats that I admire them so! Maybe I need to try one like this.
We finally stopped her in her tracks and chatted for a bit. She allowed me to take some pictures and shared her web address with us. Her name is Kathryn Alexander and her website is here. She has kits for vests and sweaters, she teaches, sells wheels, sponsors retreats. I shouldn't be thinking this way, but doesn't that sound like fun?
Didn't I just return from a retreat-y like thing? I miss you guys. Wish I could give you a real, live hug.
