Tangents and Connections

It really was a busy weekend in Rhinebeck.

Consider this: a farm on Martha's Vineyard has a CSA for fleece. How did I learn about this? Standing on line to get a beer during the Ravelry party! And fine beer, too - LOCAL - Keegan Ales in Kingston, NY a woman with a very pretty scarf tells me the yarn came from the Martha's Vineyard farm and then one thing led to know how it goes. It was a great chat. By the time we'd finished getting our drinks she had me hooked (pun intended?).

As soon as I got home, I launched my Internet and found my way to Martha's Vineyard. Truly one of my favorite places in this hemisphere, and lo! Release your inner shepherd! Participate in sheep farming not just vicariously but in reality! I fired off an email right away - immersion vacation! (And brilliant marketing on their part!!)

Yes, my friends, the wheels are definitely turning!

maybe you've found it already, but there's a group on Ravelry for the Martha's V CSA. I love the idea of it; I just wonder what you get for the investment.
