Vicarious Attendance

Someday, I will be able to shop Socks that Rock Rare Gems in person.

But until that day happens, the next best thing is to give money to good friends and ask them to pick something they think you’ll like.

I did not go to Rhinebeck. But I did get yarn at Rhinebeck.

My friend Yvonne was going. I gave her some cash and told her to get me a Rare Gem.

Apparently, Zarzuela got to pet my new yarn before I did (she saw Yvonne at the festival)

I love the random colors that pop up in this skein. They’re totally unexpected, but they just plain work.

Plus, it’s a mediumweight skein. I loves me some STR Mediumweight.

Thanks, Yvonne. I appreciate your mad shopping skillz!

You've got quite the army of talented personal festival yarn shoppers!

Beautiful skein! Now I know that Yvonne is a good personal shopper when it comes to yarn.

Good choice. I love the idea of rare gems. No one will have socks that look anything like yours.
