Fall color and llamas in Rhinebeck, NY

| May 8, 2014 | 2 Comments

Starting where I left off, back in 2012 – where does the time go? We all know it goes down the drain, clockwise, if you live in the northern hemisphere. Or does it?

In October 2012 we took a small-ish (for us) trip to Rhinebeck, NY specifically for the queen to attend the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival. This is apparently a mega dealeo for people who are into knitting and spinning and other fiberish crafty stuff. While I enjoy making the journey to such events, this one was over the top, insane, out of control knitting people from all over the place converging on a small hamlet in New York state kind of crazy.

The place was packed. But hey, there were llamas.

And now Mutual of Omaha’s Animal Kingdom… view the queen in her natural habitat as she seeks out some unsuspecting knitting thing and then gets all ‘awesome face’ about how awesome the thing is.

For me, it’s all about the scenic and on this particular trip, the fall color was outstanding. We travel to the northeast often, usually in autumn, and this was the bestest color yet in the Catskill mountains.

    Those sure are purdy trees! And, the Queen is so EXCITED!

    We’ve had something in Portland called The Sock Summit. A friend attended and was part of a team that sheared a sheep, carded the wool, and knit a pair of socks all in the same day. I was duly impressed. I don’t, however, believe that they had a llama. Losers.

    Any festival that inludes a llama: win-win. Love the colors. 🙂
