A beautiful, blustery day in Rhinebeck, NY, for the start of the Festival. Check out Doris is wearing her now-famous (and free pattern) Broomstick Lace Scarf in Celestial, a new color of Simply Soft. And the mitts she’s wearing are her design (of course) and are being featured in Interweave’s new Crochet Accessories special issue. And Vickie? She’s working on…..well….more on that at a later date….. Bottom line is, we all had great fun, saw lots of sheep (well, more yarn than sheep) and made plans to do it all again next year.
But before I go, I wanted to share with you my first favorite (I have two) “yarn animals” – an angora goat, the curlied guys that produce fiber known as mohair. I have no idea how he could see me, but he came over to see what that silver thing in my hand was – or he was just a natural ham.
