Rhinebeck 2018

After an absence, I’m back and I’m going to try and make blogging more realistic for my life. I missed sharing my projects and having a record to track them. So here is a little bit different format with a few details of each project, a few photos, and hopefully more frequent posting again.

Last fall I went to the New York Sheep and Wool Festival, aka Rhinebeck with my friend Erica. It was a bucket list trip for both of us and going with a friend made the whole thing a little less overwhelming. Rhinebeck is the most talked about wool festival in the US and because its location is close to so many major cities in the Northeast, a lot of people attend. A lot of my yarn-y friends attend.

It was a lot of fun. We ate the best damn falafel. I found a historical museum at the fairgrounds and met a man who had attended school in this school house. I pet a lot of animals, and I hugged so many people. It was amazing.

Technology is such a gift. I finally got to meet my health and exercise support group in person. We all bonded over Orange Theory and it bloomed into so so much more. I knit the same sweater as 20 other people and we made a human rainbow. Erica made me a political hat of rainbow goodness.

The best part of the trip was finding that Erica and I traveled so well together. It was a huge leap to spend 5 days with someone, but we came out the other side still friends and now we’re thinking up our next adventure together.
