Rhinebeck Around the Bend
This is the lovely Deirdre DeSantis, new owner of The Spinning Room in Altamont, NY. Deirdre will be at The NYS Sheep and Wool Festival this coming weekend, Oct. 15 & 16, in Building A, booth 25. She is bringing along a selection of our handpainted yarns (which are hanging about right next to her in this photo). I feel there is good karma in this shot, as the yarns are flanking "The Knitters Book of Yarn" by Clara Parkes. This is an amazing book, and it has a brand new sibling, hot off the presses, entitled "The Knitters Book of Socks". Clara will be at the festival along with many other esteemed authors, signing books and chatting with all of us wool junkies.
I hope those of you travelling to Rhinebeck this weekend will stop by and say hello to Deirdre. Enjoy!
