This Sunday I went on a bus trip to Rhinebeck. "Rhinebeck" is what everyone calls the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival, which occurs annually over one October weekend, at the Duchess County Fairground in Rhinebeck, NY.
It was a great day! I looked at a lot of yarn, and I talked to a lot of people. I took some photos of sheep.
I am sitting here now thinking about some things that I should have done.
I should have taken pictures of some of the yarn. All the amazing colorful displays. All of the beautiful and varied textures.
I should have taken some pictures of the festival grounds, and the walkways, with so many thousands of people, many wearing beautiful knitwear. I could even have taken a picture of the gumbo I ate for my lunch. And maybe some of the lovely fall foliage.
I did stop by the Knitcircus trunk show in barn #37. I introduced myself there, had my picture taken, and I met Amy Detjen who I know from the Knitcircus Podcasts that she does with Jaala Spiro. (These are a lot of fun. Have a listen when you have time.) I probably should have taken some pictures there as well.
I will do better next time. This was not my first fiber festival, but it was the first one I could blog about.
