sheep & wool fest AND it’s cider week

It is supposed to stop raining tomorrow…  What are you going to do?

Head south on 9 to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck and visit the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival 2011.  It is amazing.  It will help if you like yarn.  And sheep.  And all wooly things in between.  The colors and textures of the fluff and roving and yarn are gorgeous.  Since I really only do a rudimentary crochet (lots of afghans in my house), I really go for the sheep or goat people that sell cheese…  Take the kids, meet the animals and if you’re lucky the chicken pot pie people will be there – get in line early, before they run out.

Starting Sunday, October 16 and running through the week, it’s Cider Week!  This is a new effort to keep the apple industry alive.  I love it when the call to action is Join the Hard Cider Revival!  They even have a friendly Find Cider list which includes several fine establishments in Hudson.
