It’s that time of year! The temperature is starting to fall, the days are getting shorter, and the leaves are starting to change. This can only mean one thing to us knitters and spinners…Rhinebeck! For those of you not in the know, Rhinebeck is the location of one of the country’s largest sheep & wool festivals, the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival to be exact.
Nestled between the Berkshires and the Catskills, it is the perfect location for an amazing fall festival. There’s wool, yarn, beer, wine, cheese, artichokes, fried stuff, quality people watching, great friends, and loads of fun and laughter to be had. I’m working tomorrow and leaving early Friday, so figured I’d better get down to business and start picking out what hand knits to bring along! On a sour note, this process has made me aware that my seasick socks are missing…the hunt is on.
