Rhinebeck 09

This was my second year at the NY Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY. It was suppose to rain, but didn't, although it was cold. I wore my new hat and curly scarf. The scarf got lots of comments. Here are some pics of the day. A yurt that was put up by a vendor. They did wet felting. It was really cool! There was a nice display of fall flowers that was really colorful. A good crowd, we got there about 10:00 and it wasn't too bad, but by noon, it was very crowded! We stayed until about 5:00 and it was really emptying out by then. I did go to the Ravelery meetup, but really didn't know anyone, since I don't post often there. I did meet Anne from Norway, but did not get her Ravlery name. She took a nice picture of me in my new hat and scarf. I also shopped at Creative's booth, Creatively Dyed. I bought two skeins of Woodbrook in the colorway of "School" Cuz how could I pass that up? I really liked a skein that she made special for the festival, but didn't purchase it. Later I went back and it was still there, so I snapped it up. I will try to get pics later of my goodies, as it is early and not too light out.

Hi, it's a small world, isn't it :D) Here we meet again ... I wish I hadn't place you bang in the middle of the picture when seeing it now. Here is the picture you took of me; thanks :)
From your pictures it seems like you had a great time after we split up?
Looking forward to see what you make from Creative Dyed yarn. We'll keep in touch on Ravelry.
