At some point I'll take pictures of the things I bought, but till then, there's some of the fair. I didn't take pictures of the booths, because I've been to craft fairs where the sellers are extremely sensitive about pictures being taken of their booths, so I stayed on the side of caution. After all, I wouldn't want to be traumatized at my first Rhinebeck. Or more so, haha.
I'm not a person that likes crowds, and I'm generally afraid of people. I hate that. I wish I was one of those people who could talk to anyone and make friends without hardly trying. If you've talked to me on IM, I'm probably nervous then, too. I go through stages where I try very hard to overcome this, and then I lapse again.
So Rhinebeck, was almost terrifying, haha. There were knitters EVERYWHERE, trying to get at the prettiest yarns. I have a hard time speaking up, so I end up waiting patiently (or not so patiently) behind people, hoping for a chance to get by. At Rhinebeck, it almost felt like a surivival of the fittest. I FAIL. I probably would have bought more if I wasn't fazed by so many people, and so many CHOICES.
Me at breakfast that morning, wearing my Wicked sweater. I finished it in time! Unfortunately, it was too warm to wear it past like, 8:00 that morning.
A healthy breakfast of pancakes, milk and bacon. MMMmm. BACON.
There was a little petting zoo at the entrance, with sheepies, a tortoise, lemurs (sp?), kangaroos, and a little alligator.
And of course, there were sheep- lots of them. And goats, and alpacas, and BUNNIES.
I passed the barn with the sheep auction, and thought it was interesting- I took a quick picture.
I wanted to try the fried pickles, but found the booth AFTER we had eaten :( SAD FACE. But we did try several types of dip, cheese, maple sugar cotton candy, and ice wine. For lunch I had a shake and fries, so healthy, right? But SO YUMMY.
