NYS Sheep and Wool Festival 2010 Rhinebeck

Yesterday, I went to Rhinebeck... for the annual NYS Sheep and Wool Festival... for the first time.  It was truly amazing.  I probably could spend the entire weekend looking around there, as there was just so much to take in.  Next year I'd like to see if I can swing a class or two.

Spinning wheels everywhere!!!

Llama  parking?

Ellen's 1/2 Pint Farm (crap picture... sorry)

Looking Glass Wool
 Just some random knitting...

All in all, I was very good.  I only bought 2 skeins of fingering yarn... and a lovely button.

This skein is going to be a pair of socks.  I bought it from Cat's Paw Yarns.

This skein is going to turn into the Listado Cowl.  I bought the yarn from Silver Moon Farm Fiber Arts.

And then there's my lovely button from Mellisa Jean Design.  It's made from a nut and then stained.  It will be adorning my Hooked on a Feeling Shrug.

Then there were the critters.  I don't know if it's the little kid in me or what.  I love the animals.  I really wish we had the room for a pygmy angora goat.  They had them for sale.  I had to walk away VERY QUICKLY!



  1. I'm jealous!

    I wanted to go but...that's a half day drive. One day.

  2. This is totally random, but the button made from a nut made me think of a pig's nose.

    So cute.

    Looked like a great day! :D

  3. I had the same thought about the button! I think that's why it appealed to me.

    Andrea - You really could make a weekend out of the entire thing. There was that much to see. Just something to think about... :)
