hand-dyes drying at the fairground Thanks to my work with Windy Valley Muskox, I had the opportunity to visit rural New York in October. Famed and celebrated fiber gathering, New York Sheep and Wool, aka Rhinebeck almost defies description, there are just so many facets. What I can tell you is that if you go, you'll definitely see fiber and yarn and sweaters, knitters, fantastic local food, yarn-related celebrities, and absolutely people knitting. And animals; you will definitely find animals! You can see more of my pictures from Rhinebeck here . I would also recommend Glenna C's account here , and this fun video about Rhinebeck Sweaters.
