Missing the Rhinebeck Experience

Rhinebeck has sadly been canceled this year. But that doesn't mean we won't be able to enjoy some of the small bits of happiness that come from attending. This mini set is comprised of 5 20g minis based on some of my favourite things from New York Sheep and Wool.
From left to right we have:
Majestic Flying Llama - Every year we go on Sunday to watch the Leaping Llamas. One of the llamas from the Spitters Club in particular has become our favourite. This is based off of her. She is majestic and a good bit aloof.
Apple Cider Donuts - Yes the line is almost always crazy long. But the donuts are 100% worth the wait.
Lunch on the Hill - There's a lovely hill right next to the path that leads to the apple cider donut booth that many a festival goers enjoy taking a break on. Its usually litered with leaves and people in lovely woolen garmets.
The Sheepies - From the parade to the sheep for show in the barns, it's always wonderful to go and take a break from buying too much yarn and look at the little floofs chilling. Sometimes you even get lucky enough to pet them.
Leaves on the Ground - Much like the hill the rest of the fair grounds is often covered in gorgeous autumnal leaves. I don't know how many pictures I have taken of the tree and the ground to share with people...
Let's get this forever drive over
And head to Rhinebeck
A gathering of friends
Still weaving in their sweater's ends
Heading to Rhinebeck
Wake up and check the weather
Pull this woolen look together
And get our butts to Rhinebeck
Glowing yellow and orange leaves
Is that a hot or cool breeze?
Let's look at the sheep at Rhinebeck
Delicious smells are wafting
Standing in line knitting
It's lunch time at Rhinebeck
Coffee and apple cider donuts
Artichoke French, falafel, and such
That's the festival food we eat a Rhinebeck
Head back to the space that is not our own
Chill out and watch some movies to zone
We have one more day left at Rhinebeck
Wish we could have done another workshop
Bought more yarn, or watched more llamas hop,
But we must return home from Rhinebeck
One last hug good bye
As we come down from the yarn high
But next year we shall return to Rhinebeck"
Hand wash in warm water with mild detergent and lay flat to dry.
