Eye Candy: Rhinebeck 2018

October 26th, 2018

New York Sheep & Wool, commonly referred to by many of us as Rhinebeck, is an annual celebration of fiber arts and the animals that provide us with the fiber we use. For some it’s about the shopping, others are all about those cider donuts, but for me it’s all about the people and seeing the amazing works of art they have created for the event. It was incredibly difficult to narrow down what to share in this little roundup post, but here are the finished projects in Ravelry that caught my eye.

First off, some groups of people who made the same thing! I credited the person whose photo I used in these, but you should be able to also check out the other ones in the projects tab of each pattern.

It seemed like colorwork was a big theme this year. Here are some of the sweaters that caught my eye for their great use of color.

Finally, I just felt like these pictures captured the beauty and joy of Rhinebeck.
