Weekend at Rhinebeck Fiber Festival

My friend and I spent the weekend at a 2 day fiber festival snuggled in the Catskill Mountains with all the fall foliage surrounding us.  But better yet, we were also surrounded by sheep, alpaca, llamas, bunnies and other animals that provide us with amazing fiber.

Barns and barns of fiber artists, spinners, weavers, dyers, knitters were the main attraction and can I say that it can be overwhelming at times. 

The highlight of my weekend was meeting Anna Dabri and getting a signed copy of her newest book,  Shaping Shawls.

I immediately needed to cast on with some of Periwinkle Sheeps gorgeous wink yarn when I got home.  So far, the one I chose is coming out lovely:

Here is the stash I bought for spinning and knitting:

Now, I am anxiously awaiting the weekend to really get going on some of this stuff!

The Beast is a place and the social decay which emerges. The Anti-Christ is the bullshit.
The Anti-Christ is the positioning, whether enforcing the historical perception of the Holocaust, refusing to acknolowdge the existance/capability of Artificial Intelligence or the clone host fakes who infest society's upper eschelons, those who the gods use to enforce the BigLie which compells people to incurr evil through temptation.
This is the REAL battle of good and evil. Take it or leave it.
