I am off to the NY Sheep & Wool festival this weekend. Although I have a shopping list for yarn, my main purpose in going is to meet up with people I interact with online but don’t get a lot of opportunities to hang out with in person. I’ll be there both days.
Of course, because we have only met online and this is a crowded fairground, that whole meeting up thing is hard. You can’t even rely on the old stand by of looking for the other person in the café who is looking for someone that they have only met online because well, a lot of people are doing that at Rhinebeck.
Here’s the thing to look for:
It will likely be full of yarn
Going with a pig theme is going to make me stand out, I’m betting. (Mat says I have to play you Papas Got A Brand New Pig Bag. It’s pretty funky.)
Also, depending how warm it is, I might be wearing this:
It has 2 sleeves now.
And I guess a recent photo of my actual face wouldn’t go amiss. Please note this was taken a few months ago and I haven’t had my hair cut since. Which means it’s not only longer (though not long) but has NO STYLE. Also, the adorable teen will not be with me.
Places you might spot me: Briar Rose booth (probably earlier on Saturday), the 4H stand for lunch, the picnic tables by the food stalls (random times), watching sheep showing or hanging out in animal barns.
I think I’m also going to the Cooperative Press party on Saturday night.
