|Last weekend I had the extreme pleasure of traveling to Rhinebeck, New York, for the 31st-annual New York Sheep and Wool Festival. If you couldn't make it to the show, fear not—this week I bring the show to you.|

Final Weeks Before the KR Retreat
Join us on November 8 for the Saturday portion of the Knitter's Review Retreat in Syria, Virginia. We'll have a color-knitting workshop in the morning, taught by Annie Modesitt and Bess Haile, followed by an on-site marketplace in the afternoon (featuring Carodan Farm, Stony Mountain Fibers, and Spirit Trail Fiberworks, plus a visit from the folks who make the Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles). After dinner, Stony Mountain Fibers' Barbara Gentry will show us how to blend fibers by hand!
There's nothing like curling up by the fire with a warm cup of tea (or coffee) and your knitting on a fall evening. In case you need to stock up on provisions for the winter, this month we'll give away a $50 gift certificate to gourmet retailer Dean & DeLuca. Simply stay subscribed and you'll automatically be in the drawing.
As always, thank you for your readership. Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums!
