After a 4-year absence I got the chance to hit the NY Sheep and Wool Festival, aka Rhinebeck, again. The first time I went, I only spent the Saturday there, but after spending the weekend in 2008, I knew I’d have to continue making a serious vacation of this experience. And, so it was a weekend this time too.
The highlights are as follows:
(L-R)LetteKnits, HeiressKnits, and CiciCarry!!
My G+ KnitChat crew, clockwise(VivianneKnits, me, Monetb56, PDXLaceknitter and TamiKnits– we all rode up together except for Viv who freaking LIVES up there! I am Gel- Us!
Maple Cotton Candy, ohhh so good. I was holding out for these delectable soaps I found in ’08 from a vendor with no online presence, but alas, he was nowhere to be found.
and Fiber goods:
Lots of decorated wheels. I keep saying I’ll do up mine, but I get lazy and scared of messing up so..
And don’t forget the sheep!
And just think, I did this times two! We stayed all day on Saturday til we just about got kicked out, but left early on Sunday to avoid the crazy that is trying to get out of the parking lot all. at. once. Live and learn.
So much to see and do and tried to take photos of it all. Wallet in one hand, camera in the other and a ton of fun was had.
I will have to make a separate post of the actual haul, as I’m still trying to recover(and make room!)
If you’re heading out to SAFF this coming weekend, I hope your experience is just as, if not more fun!
