Dutchess County Sheep & Wool Festival This Weekend, Oct 15-16

You don’t have to be in the market for a baby lamb to enjoy this one. The Dutchess County Sheep & Wool Festival, in Rhinebeck this weekend, is my idea of heaven, even though I have no plans to add livestock to my pet menagerie any time soon. Wool and yarn for sale, herding dog competitions (just like Babe!), pumpkin carving, cooking demos, a full schedule of activities for kids, and lots and lots of fuzzy animals. Can anything be better than a critical mass of border collies and hand knit mittens set against the backdrop of a pretty Hudson Valley town at the height of fall foliage? I think not.
