I had to take a break from the temptations of the fair grounds - the yarn, the spinners, the food, maple syrup cotton candy, the cheese (yes there was wine and cheese tasting), I have no will power really.
While I was walking out on the grass meadow, I saw those freshly sheered sheep. I wondered which of the many bags of fiber belonged to them.

Back inside, I keep telling myself to pull the plug already, I'm nearly out of dough and my feet are feeling numb. Right there in front of me I see someone who had already run out of gas!
Surely, I could not pass that by! Do I buy them all or just the dye lot? Do I buy the merino, the mohair AND the boucle in the same colorway? Oh, darn it! WWUDO??
As I stood there contemplating bankruptcy, the sun began to set and that was the final cue that it was indeed time to go home. I followed the crowds, like sheep, out to the parking lot.
Bye bye Rhinebeck. Until tomorrow...
