To my pleasant surprise lots of Rhinebeck goers were willing to play along when I asked "Did you knit that?" and allow me to photograph them for my blog. There are lots of talented knitters out there and I want to thank everyone of them who took a moment to pose for this post.

And I absolutely adore this bright yellow! The design is beautiful too and the little blue pin to close it is fantastic. This Rhinebecker couldn't remember the pattern name, people had been asking her all day, I bet. But she did knit it in a Manos yarn.

UPDATE! Tasha, the knitter and model in this photo was kind enough to email me these details on her beautiful pullover..."Just wanted to give you more info if you wanted it. My name is Tasha, and my blog is By gum, by golly: http://blog.bygumbygolly.com. I primarily blog about vintage things, including vintage-oriented knitting and some sewing. The pattern is Red Queen by Lorraine Condotta, on Ravelry here, though obviously I modified it a bit to be more 40s styled. And it was knit in Brooklyn Tweed Loft."

When I wasn't taking photos of beautiful knitwear I was checking out stalls and stalls of stunning fiber and of course the animal scene.
And lots of angoras, its no secret I love these rabbits...some day I'll own one.
But until than I'll have to be happy with a pair of bunny slippers!
Last year my DH told me he had seen a kangaroo. So this year I made him show it to me. Not only a kangaroo but lots of exotic animals....
You never know what your going to see next at Rhinebeck!
All and all we had a great day, the weather was perfect and it was topped off by the Cooperative Press' Rhinebeck after party where I got to meet lots of fellow Ravelers and some rather famous knitters, but at that point by cell phone was dead so no pics!
So I'll leave with the kangaroo!
