Another year, another trip to the NY Sheep and Wool Festival. This year my mom and dad joined me. I've enjoyed going with each and every person I've ever attended with, how could you not, but Rhinebeck is the best when my family visits. Heck, NY in general is just better when my family visits.
I have talked about Rhinebeck extensively year after year so I will keep the recap short and sweet.
First, the hat. I have tried this on every year for the past 8. This year it came home with me. There was a guy also from NYC trying on a different hat from this vender and I think we talked each other into our hat purchases. It reminds me of Dr Zhivago.
Second, the animals. How cute is this sheep? I was squeeing over it and the farmer told me this breed is special because they smile. And no, I don't know what breed it was because I forgot to take note. whoops.
And finally, the haul. Miss Babs, Fiber Optic, Touch of Twist, Bartlett Yarns, Brooks Farm, Ensign Brook Farm, and sparkly gold fiber from a vendor I can't remember. The goal was golds, a light indigo, a Fiber Optic ombre box and colors I don't normally grab. I think I accomplished that. There is not a red and teal combo in sight (if I didn't check myself those are the only colors I would ever use).
Just something random, it never fails that the moment you stop posing like an normal adult and start goofing off, it will be captured for posterity. So here you go.
I call myself a normal adult but my sunglasses say otherwise.
