We had a great day at Rhinebeck yesterday.  I think that the people going today probably have the better weather, but all things considered, it was a terrific day. 

Lots of wool. 

Let's skip over the amount of wool that may or may not have been purchased and brought back to the farm.  That's irrelevant.

Lots of sheep:

And because I fell in love with these:

we now have Sailor- a red satin angora buck.

And because Adam fell in love with these:

yeah, you guessed it.

Meet Cisco, the new farm dog.

To Market

Today Adam, his mom, and I went to the Calicoon Farmer's Market and set up with the Spinners and Weavers Guild.

Manning the table while trying to get some knitting done on Adam's Christmas sweater

Mary's felted hats

I've been knitting and felting these lambs while my sister has been giving them names and personalities. 
They sold really fast!

It was a beautiful day, but 80 degree weather doesn't make people want to think about snow and
warm woolies.

Annie, who works with Adam and I.

Ninja Yaks

Niobe.  Stealth yak.

Gaia, on the other hand...

less stealthy.

Take a Guess

Q:  How many sheep can fit into a hay trough at one time?

A:  Five

No, we don't have any idea why that's their favorite place either.  Your guess is as good as ours.
