Maybe it’s because the weather where I live is unusually cool for August – it was 73 yesterday. But I feel fall coming.
To a lot of spinners the event that makes our hearts beat faster in the fall is – Rhinebeck, the New York Sheep and Wool Festival.
This year it’s October 19th and 20th, with extra class time on October 17th and 18th.
Who’s going? Where are you staying? What will you buy? The vendor list is up!

What are you knitting for your Rhinebeck sweater? I’m knitting a cardigan using Ann Budd’s most excellent Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters with handspun of course.
Are you taking classes? Have you looked at the list? There are lots of spinning classes taught by teachers from all over the county.

This year I’m teaching for four days which means I can’t take classes or shop much. Usually, I take a least one half day class, even if it’s something I’ve taken a class in before. There are always new ideas, and new perspectives, plus the classes usually give my shopping new direction.
The half day classes I’m teaching this year are all about knitting with handspun, because that’s what I love.
What are your Rhinebeck plans?
