Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who stopped by and posed, and/or tweeted, blogged, FB'ed or stopped strangers with a tap on the shoulder and told them to come by to my photo project shoot, Rhinebeck Style, at the NY Sheep & Wool festival last weekend. It really was a spectacular weekend in every way.
Not to mention some big fun.
Huge thanks to my niece Ariana, who worked with me all weekend. I don't do the Rhinebeck sweater thing (the pressure!) but I did make us 2 sets of Rhinebeck fingerless mitts from handspun.
I'm running out of town to work in DC this week but before I leave, just this report and many thanks--and a regret that I couldn't have stopped to chat with everyone, friends new & old.
so....drumrolllll..... we shot
• 2152 images at the festival
• around 203 people posed for us
• a couple dozen are now doing the Hollywood chin everytime a camera comes out
• we shot sheep, llamas, one pair of Paco-Vicunas
and one adorable cashmere goat.
Stay tuned for more. This is too wonderful to let sit unattended--I've got my (handknit) (handspun) thinking cap on for sharing this project. You all looked wonderful (seriously).
