My full list for the Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY

I had written a primer on shopping for yarn at the sheep and wool festival in Rhinebeck, NY where I included a partial list of yarns that I am looking to get.  Here is my full list.  Keep in my, my success rate is about 50% so when I come home, I will likely be toting only 1/2 of what I intend to buy.

  1. A sweater for my father in law, worsted weight, in blue color, 8 skeins, probably from Wild Apple Hill Farm, from Hudson, NY. They have an incredible selection of color.  The yarn is tough, but when I accidentally washed a pocket, it became soft and felted beautifully.  I have written this step into the pattern directions I am developing for this sweater.
  2. Socks for my kids, fingering or even better sport weight, 2-3 skeins, bright colors.
  3. Additional yarn for my daughter’s blanket, Brooks Farm, Solana (I bought 3 skeins two years ago, 2 skeins last year which were accidentally the wrong yarn), 3 skeins, matching color. I will bring the blanket to make sure I don’t make a mistake again.
  4. 2 extra skeins of the cream, undyed yarn from the Massachusetts dealer on the top floor of the split barn, for a vest or sweater for myself.
  5. A light sport weight yarn, preferably wool blend, for a spring fall beret for me, in blue color.
  6. Sport or fingering weight wool for gloves for me, two skeins, grey or similar, color
  7. Girls vest made from sparkly yarn
    Vest with a small ruffle at the bottom

    Vest yarn for my daughter, fingering weight, preferably with sparkles, 3 large skeins, purple, pink or blue hues; The last vest I made from Space Cadet Yarns, which has a little bit of sparkle.  They are not coming this year, but I really hope that I can find something similar (or I will have to order online).

  8. Single strand blue/green yarn for a light spring/summer hat and scarf for my daughters, 2-3 skeins
  9. Cotton blend for a dress pattern for my daughters (unlikely to find this at the sheep and wool, but will look); 4.25/inch
  10. Lattice Pie Hat made from Good Kharma Yarn's worsted weight

    Thin vest yarn for my dad – preferably green colors, sport or thinner. Preferably a wool blend.

  11. 3-5 skeins of Good Karma Yarn, preferably in pink for my Lattice Pie hat and scarf patterns.
  12. Thin hat for the spring or fall for kids called Squared Away
