Rhinebeck Goodness!

The NYS Sheep & Wool Festival was GREAT fun! It was my first time there, and I really did have a complete blast!

We camped at a nearby State Park and thank goodness for really good North Face sleeping bags! It was a good time, and we even got a nice view of the Hudson River!

Ready to go! I got my button on, representing my Rav folks!

It was a gorgeous day for a festival! The trees were gorgeous fall colors!

Alas, yarn! The handspun/dyed yarns were to dye for!

It's not a Sheep & Wool Festival with out the sheep! Craig and I made some new friends!

I met Kim (AKA Afroknits ) at the Ravelry daytime Sat. party! Kim is a fabulous knitter AND baker! Her cookies are heaven!

Wheels = love. The buildings were filled with goodies to browse!

I bought my first Golding Spindle! I shall call her Queen Elizabeth! :)

I saw Robin (AKA Robinsegg) at the Sat. night Ravelry party at the Elks Lodge! After looking for her the whole day, I saw her that night! Yay! It was so much fun to meet other Ravelers and make some new friends!

And a tired couple left Rhinebeck feeling refreshed and relaxed. Can't wait for next year! Counting down already!
