Happy November

New York Sheep and Wool Festival a.k.a. RHINEBECK


I always feel so lucky to be working in the local knitting shop, The Knitting Garage at Stickles, especially during the Sheep and Wool Festival.
My favorite thing about the festival is seeing so many people dressed in their hand-knits.  Which better place to be than in the shop when there is a literal parade of fiber-enthusiasts coming through and showing off their work.
Here are a few of my favorites I took pictures of before it got too busy :)

I am sorry I don’t have details on all of the garments, but here are the details on my ensemble:

Cardigan: Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig…/Strickliese/featherweight-cardigan
Shawl :The Drifter by Tami Gore
Hat : Cable Hat 3113 by Bernard Studio
Mitts: RBK Fingerless Mitts ( RBK stands for Rhinebeck and these are my own design available on ravelry)…/library/rbk-fingerless-mitts

We also had a trunk show right in the shop!
I could not resist this kit from the Tre Liz . Two strands of sock yarn knitted up into a "blanket" and then dyed; perfect for my two at the time socks ; socks will be guaranteed the same color sequence. BTW:  Have you signed up for my class yet?  Classes start next week.
