Rhinebeck - 39th Annual NYS Sheep and Wool Festival
We just came home from Rhinebeck. (If by any chance you are not familiar with the area, it is two hours north of New York, along the Hudson river in the Hudson Valley. Chelsea Clinton got married here.)
It was a wonderful experience. I was clearly overwhelmed, so many beautiful choices, ideas and animals. I have been to this city before, but was unaware of the wool festival. This was the first time I went to the fairgrounds. My husband was a real trooper, first because he drove back and forth and secondly, I can"t imagine how it must feel, to look at yarn and animals who produce them, for four hours - if that is not your passion.
Nem regen erkeztunk haza Rhinebeckbol. Ez olyan ket orara van tolunk, eszakra a Hudson folyo melett, a Hudson volgyben. Talan hallottatok rola, itt volt Chelsea Clinton eskuvoje.
En mar voltam errefele, de nem tudtam errol a fonal fesztivalrol. Jottek mindenhonnan, es hat minden gyonyoru volt. Ami a kotessel, horgolassal es szovessel kapcsolatos az itt biztosan reprezentalva volt. A ferjem egy igazi hos volt, eloszor, mert o vezetett, masodszor, mert negy orat ott boklaszott velem, az allatok es a fonalak kozott.
Yes I did get two skeins of yarn. They are 100% superfine alpaca. It is from Delly's Delights Farm from Trappe, MD. They are so soft, that I had them on my lap all the way home, and caressed them as they were kittens. The colors are beautiful. I can't wait to find a fitting pattern for them. Each is 650 yards, and considered sport weight.
Es hat vegulis nagy nehezen valasztottam, ket gomboc 100% alpaka fonalat. Delly's Delights nevu farmrol valo, Maryland-bol. Sport vastagsagu es 594m. Olyan puha mindketto, mint amikor ember kiscicat simogat. Pont igy ereztem, mig az olemben voltak hazafele.
