Fiber & Fun at the Sheep & Wool Festival

Last weekend, the STC Craft team made our annual trek up to Rhinebeck for the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival. For those not familiar with the event, Sheep & Wool is a beloved fall ritual that combines country fair with fiber heaven. Perhaps Clara Parkes summed it up best when she called it "a knitterly version of a homecoming weekend."

This year, we were excited to have authors Norah Gaughan, Bruce Weinstein, and Daniel Yuhas signing books at our booth.

As you can imagine, we were a bit overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of yarn & yarn-related goodies.

We also found ourselves enchanted by animals. (The llama parade was particularly unforgettable.)

After we stuffed ourselves with kettle corn, apple crisp and a million other kinds of fair food, we packed up our booth and headed back to the city. For all of you who came to Rhinebeck, we hope you had a great time and safe travels home, too! And for those who couldn't make it, perhaps we'll see you next year? (It really is worth the pilgrimage.)
