Hey, there! I’m back from beautiful, Rhinebeck, New York where I partook in the annual Sheep & Wool Festival. This was bucket list event for me, so I was thrilled to finally be able to attend. I can’t imagine a better yarn lovin’ backdrop, than New England in the fall. Seriously beautiful, and for an Austinite like me, the crisp weather and turning leaves were a treat!
I admittedly only stayed a few hours at the fairgrounds–not because it wasn’t a good time, but because this trip offered me the rarity of holing up for two days in a rental house to knit with friends, whom I rarely get to see. That was an opportunity too good to pass up! I did however, stay long enough to walk the aisles of the many buildings, filled to the brim with fiber-related treats. I chatted with knitting enthusiasts, witnessed insanely long purchasing lines for the aptly named rock star of the show, Socks That Rock, bought copious amounts of buttons, saw cute animals, touched soft yarn, showed great restraint by not buying the place out, and took some pictures to share with you all. So, here’s a glimpse into the world renown festival!
