Yesterday a friend and I attended The New York Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY.
The day was bright and unseasonably warm as we explored the barns full of fiber.
My beautiful, albeit shy, friend and I learned how to use a spinning wheel.
Time to start saving those pennies!
We were so busy and our hands too full to take many photos.
I spoiled myself and purchased one ball of long desired Qivuit in a soft, mossy grey color.
And my yearly skien of cashmere which is eggplant and not the blue it appears to be.
Some of my bounty from left to right:
Persimmon Tree Farm mohair/wool blend
It was a wonderful event made even better by sharing it with my friend.
Unit next year!
ps. Thanks Mom!
