I Love a Good Yarn

Yarns, stories, and sometimes stories about yarn

Counting down to Rhinebeck!

It’s been nice to step away from the blog for a spell, but with the New York State Sheep and Wool festival starting tomorrow in beautiful Rhinebeck, NY, it’s high time to get back to what I love best – knitting, writing, and writing about knitting. I’ve taken notes on the couple of projects I’d like to find yarn for at the festival and am very excited to spend a couple of days among knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers and other fiber enthusiasts.

If you’re going, I hope you have a wonderful time. The weather forecast isn’t ideal for showing off one’s knitted masterpieces, but at least we’re not expecting rain (ugh, wet wool!).

And, if the events in Rhinebeck don’t completely whet your appetite for all things yarn and knitting, head on over to nearby Saugerties, NY, for The Perfect Blend’s annual Sheep and Wool get-togethers. The shop will be open late tonight and tomorrow night and until 4pm Sunday and will be hosting a variety of fun events, such as a book signing and pop-up shop, and offering their usual outstanding hospitality and cozy ambiance for sharing your experiences from the festival.
