Fall flora and fauna

A belated Rhinebeck post -- but what a great day it was! The weather was absolutely glorious -- crisp, clear and sunny the whole day on Saturday. The drive up was spectacular -- fall colors as far as the eye could see. Same was true for the fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, as you can see.

There was so much beautiful yarn to see, and so many people looking and touching it, that I didn't take any photos of the stalls. TGhe loivestock sheds were alittle less crowded, however, so I did take a few pics in there. Of the more unusual-looking animals only...

That's a Jacob sheep, above, and a weird-looking llama, below.

It was also really fun to hang with the women from the LIC Stitch-n-Bitch. Pictured below, from left to right, are Melissa from NeoKnits (wearing a Rowan-designed sweater); Dana (wearing a Melissa-designed sweater); Colette (wearing another Melissa-designed sweater); gwen; and me.

I managed to control myself and only bought two (that's right, TWO) skeins of yarn. Pics of those to follow another day. All in all, a FAB day!

Glad to hear you had a good time - those fall colours are amazing.

BTW the "good looking guy" on my right is my partner Jason (another of the partners, Campbell on the left). God, you have no idea how absolutely chuffed to bits he would be to know you said that ;)

What an adorable picture of you all - I'm sorry that I wasn't there! When will I see you next?!? You've been quite the jet setter!
