We, like so many of you, are looking forward to Rhinebeck this weekend. There is always this question looming in the back of our minds before the NY Sheep and Wool Festival: "What is the weather going to be like?" "Will we be able to wear a sweater? A hat? Shawls?" Well, according to Weather Underground the answer is, "Yes, you will be wearing a sweater. And...hopefully it won't rain all day."
That all sounds fine to us. SO! Lucky readers such as you are, we are going to have a little contest complete with nifty giveaways! On Saturday Kate and Courtney will be perusing the fairgrounds with thousands of other knitters. Dividing the day into three 2 hour chunks from 11-1, 1-3 and 3-5, we will be wearing different Kelbourne Woolens designs from our selection of wholesale, free and published patterns. Tweet us from your mobile with the tag #kelbournewoolens and tell us which Kelbourne Woolens design you've spotted and when! We'll choose a winner, at random, for each time slot and mail you the pattern and yarn to make the garment!
Just so you know who to look for, here's Kate:
and here's Courtney:

We can't wait to see you at Rhinebeck!
