Rhinebeck Recap 2012

wool roving

Yummy wool roving... there were bags and bags and bags. You could feel the lanolin and smell the sheepiness. Heaven.

angora bunny

I really wanted to buy this rabbit. No more animals allowed in my house though. 

sheepy sheep

He was for sale too. See above.

grumpy llama

This was a grumpy llama. He didn't want anyone to be near him. I wasn't going to test him. Look how gorgeous he is though.

drop spindle sally

The spindle (Sally ) I bought. I love her and try to spin a little every day.

This is perhaps my favorite festival that I make it to every year. It makes me happy to be there. See you next year, Rhinebeck!


  1. I can smell the lovely lanolin sheepiness from here. I take my drop spindle to doll shows--it always seems to fascinate kids when they see the process.

  2. Oh that will pass time at shows! I have 1 coming up I can bring it to.... Thanks for the idea. It's much more fun than just standing there!

  3. All these Rhinebeck posts make me so envious. Looks like you had a great time, sorry you didn't get your rabbit :(

  4. It was a wonderful time. Don't feel bad about the bunny. I do already have one who is loved and gets cuddled, so I thought (other than Hub's stern warnings about no more animals) it might be unfair to bring a new one home.

  5. That's funny... Hubba always tells me not to buy any animals when I go to fiber shows too. lol/

  6. Oh, I wish I could go to Rhinebeck. It's so far away.

    Looks like you had a great time. Hooray for a spindle.

  7. I'm so glad you let me tag along. :) My post is coming on Monday (it kept getting pushed back). Glad you finally got to start spinning!

  8. Glad to have started spinning (FINALLY) too. It's very relaxing for something that's brand new.


Thanks for reading. Please share your thoughts with me. I love reading them!
