Rhinebeck was great as always. We drive up I-87 and while the colors weren’t as bright as some years, there is nothing that can take away from the impressive Catskills or the Hudson River.

Right away we ran into Mardi, Nufflebutt on Ravelry. As we left building A, alpacas and llamas were marching past. We had a nice visited with the Harrisons. Rose is Colbertnation on Ravelry. We waved “hi” to Jesh through the thick crowd around Holiday Yarns. We glimpsed Trish and caught up with Brigitta and Patti, - who took fourth place in the spindling competition -, right at the end of the sheep to shawl competition. There were tons of people there. Lisa, aka Tsock Tsarina had her own big booth this year and was delighted with how things were going. We didn’t get to talk with her for long because she was busy already first thing Sunday morning.

It seemed to us there were more vendors, more food booths, more of everything. I took photos of gorgeous things that impressed me, but only the wonderful hooked rug dog turned out. This was the first year the Finnsheep Breeders Association had an exhibit in the breed barn.

I watched the parade of sheep breeds for a while. Then with sore feet and happy hearts we headed home.

If NY wasn't so far away... and the rental cars so expensive... I'd have loved to been there, and meet you in person. Thanks for the pictures!
