Who doesn't love...
It's obvious why the women on the left are smiling -- Stylish in Starmores are Susan (Katy's mom), Margene, and Katy (Susan's daughter) -- I'll tell you, just watching the parade of stunning handknits would have made for a mighty fine festival. But the women on the right, why are they smiling so big? They're happy, wearing their lovely knits, for sure -- Ann in her Merkin and Theresa in Rogue, Cara wearing Seraphim and knee-highs -- but those smiles are so BIG! ; ) Must be that orange-clad fella in the non-knit -- he made for a memorable exit, didn't he ladies? Thank goodness I had a camera
to hide behind!
I'm sorry that I don't have time for linking today. And really, I'm stealing time to post just these few pictures and bang out a few words. Suffice it to say that it was like any other gathering of this type -- way too much of some things and far too little of others. Mostly, way too little time to spend with people who mattered. There are some that I barely -- or NEVER -- even saw. I'm really sad about that, but I suppose that just means "next year..."
Oh, I just had to share the rare photo of Cara's trick -- if you've seen Ann's photo album, you know that it's difficult to perform, much less catch on film! Poe doesn't even have to do tricks.
Glad you made it home safe and sound! Sorry to have missed you and the gang at Rhinebeck. Next year, perhaps.

I know exactly what you mean... it really IS all about the people, and then the time plays with us cruelly and flies right by and we have to part again. I do hope to meet you one day, and am so glad you got to make it to Rhinebeck.
