My friend Kelli asked for company to go to the
Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck this past Saturday.
It started off a bit cloudy but that did not keep the crowds away.
Over by the lamp post there was a vendor selling some type of artichoke goodness
that had a major crowd the whole time we were there.
Kelli is a hat person and this looked lovely on her! It is entirely made from wool and a
few unusually striped black and white feathers.
There is as plethora of hand knitted, crocheted, woven and beautifully created
woolen goods everywhere!
I purchased a few quarters of wool from this charming lady. I want to try to
rug hook some of my art this winter.
As the day progressed, so did the crowd....
a quick trip up to livestock hill for a black sheep selfie and our day was done!
The artichoke crowd was even worse on the way out so I never did get to try it :(
