You could take Metro North from Penn Station. Maybe you can find other NYC knitters to join you. It should be a beautiful trip this time of the year.

And I assume Clara is going to be at Rhinebeck, with piles of her new book?!! Mine arrived yesterday from Amazon! Can't wait - need more time to read and knit!

If you haven’t read Clara’s Rhinebeck A-Z report, do it now! She really captures the spirit of the weekend.

Clara's article was great, especially for someone who wasn't able to get there. Next year I am going to take the train. Does anyone know what this year's featured breed of sheep was? I wasn't able to tell from the NYS&W web site.

Surprise! I thought Q would be qiviut. Quince works just as well...such beautiful yarn! I thought X would be more difficult, and probably would have for anyone who didn't have Clara's knowledge and expertise in yarn!

Terrific article, Clara! You are a great writer, also evidenced by you newest book, which I received last week. What I love most about your books is that I learn so much from them. I think that even if I weren't a knitter, I would be drawn to your books for the information presented in such an accessible way. Thank you, Clara!

One of these days, I'm going to get to Rhinebeck and/or Maryland S&W. They are on my "bucket list"! As is meeting Clara, of course!

Keep on knittin', mama, knittin' those blues away!

Thanks Clara for the great review. This was my first time at Rhinebeck and I had a blast. Your review brought back many good memories and also showed me what I missed as we went around the grounds. I did get to meet you and purchase the new book to add to my collection. Our group is already planning next years trio.

Rhinebeck decided a couple of years ago to discontinue having a featured breed, I think. I'm not sure why, but that's what we were told when we asked.

I loved the A-to-Z article, too. And am very sad that I couldn't make it to Rhinebeck myself, but did have a good - and happy - reason to not attend: my 2-year-old granddaughter was spending the week with me and DH while her parents went on a well-deserved child-free vacation. If I lived closer to the Hudson Valley I would have just brought her with me, but despite her fascination with farm animals I know that I wouldn't have had much opportunity to do it *my way*. Hopefully next year . . .

I loved Clara's From A to Z article. I've never been to the Rhinebeck festival and thoroughly enjoyed reading and seeing all the different photos.
Thanks again Clara and maybe sometime in the future I will be able to visit the Rhinebeck Wool & Fiber Festival
