Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival 

Spent the day surrounded by fiber lovers – touching luxurious yarn (at the Dutchess county fairgrounds). The Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival draws thousands of fiber lovers, from all over. There are vendors galore, aisle after aisle of amazing yarn. I’m grateful for gorgeous sunny weather with temps in the 60’s = perfect day!

I bought more than I should but, I’m frugal with my yarn purchase, most of year anyway. 😉 A few skeins, but couldn’t find the Blue Moon “Fire on the Mountain” hank which I need to finish a shawl. Well, I bought another colorway to make another. I also bought some accessories (knitting needles, crochet hook, etc.), earrings, some alpaca socks (for gifts), my annual large basket purchase & of course, a falafel.

Another amazing day surrounded by yarn!!
