The third weekend in October finds knitters flocking to The New York Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, New York. 'Rhinebeck', as it is fondly called, can be described as Knitters' Mecca!There is a vast assortment of animals, fiber, items made with fiber, so many yarns, designers, meet-ups with knitters from all over the world, demonstrations of all types, and more!Visitors wear their hand knits with pride, whether it be hats, shawls, sweaters or anything in between. Consequently, fiber lovers go up to complete strangers, touch their garments, exclaim over them, and no one minds!If a visit to Rhinebeck isn't in the cards for you this year but you'd like to join in the fun somehow, then we have just the thing!Our gifted colorwork teacher, Jeannie Giberson, has designed a stranded colorwork cowl called the See You at Rhinebeck Cowl. Happily, My Sister Knits has a two session class, taught by Jeannie, to teach this easier-than-it-looks cowl that is just right for a beginning colorwork project!This class meets Saturdays September 16th and 23rd from 9:30 to 11:30. No prior experience with colorwork is needed! This may be just the project to get you hooked on this fun knitting technique with a teacher whose passion is colorwork! Read about more class details here.Finishing the See You at Rhinebeck Cowl by the third weekend in October is entirely doable! You'll probably have time to make two! As a result, you can wear it that weekend and feel as if you're joining in the fun even if you aren't at Rhinebeck.There are only 6 class spots available as it's important to Jeannie to give her students the individual attention they need.
