Naturally, as you will read all over, Rhinebeck was wonderful. Juno and I drove up Saturday morning, models of efficiency that we are, and were installed in the fairgrounds by lunchtime, giddy and thrilled. I could go on for hours and hours about the lovely things I saw, but the pictures really speak for themselves. One of the best things for me about Rhinebeck is not just the wool (though that is pretty damn good too) but the things and people that one gets to see there…
There were sheep. Many sheep.
Men in Kilts (This one is Mel)
This one is the charming David, who not only showed me a little leg, but where the beer was.
Cara is making a baby.
Ruth already did.
The prize winning Blue Faced Leicester fleece.
Kellee loves the sheep.
Jess threw a party.
Sarah had fun at the party.
So did a lot of people.
I watched a sheep to shawl competition.
I hugged Mamacate.
Pumpkins were chucked.
Clara took my picture.
Sheep herding dogs were for sale.
There was Yarn.
There were free range Canadians.
Sheep were shorn.
Same time next year? Definitely.
