lk2g-005: NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, Pt. 1

Did you miss the opportunity to go to the 2006 NYS Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY? Here’s your chance to experience it all.

See what was going on at one of the largest fiber events in the country! Over 34,000 people at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds on Saturday alone. There were Spinners, Knitters, Crocheters and other crafters. Llamas, alpaca, goats, rabbits and other creatures. Wine tasting, cheese tasting, fried pickles(?) and other foods. Yarns of all colors and fibers and the Hudson Valley fall folliage to compete with.

There was so much going on that we’re going to have to split this into two episodes!

In this episode we met with Terry Kunst an owner of angora rabbits, Richard De Moss of Catalynje Buffalo Fiber who spins Buffalo fiber, and Donald Kading a sheep sheerer.

What am I wearing:

  • Shrug made with Rowan Wool Cotton of my own design completed fall 1996. (really just a feather and fan rectangle with cuffs)
  • Booga bag by Julie (mine was modified to be wider) made with Noro Big Kureyon and Reynold’s Lopi
