The sunsets, the fall foliage, the knitwear (just look at that skirt! "Knit a skirt" went to the top of my to-do list when I walked in and saw this) and of course the friends, all made it so much fun. 

Claudia came up from Charleston to shop and take classes and dye her own sock yarn (red, white and blue--I can't wait to see how the socks turn out!) in the Bird Mountain Creations booth (more on that next time). Corinne has the distinction of being my very first customer! After connecting via social media, it was so lovely to finally meet her. Since we live near each other, we will do lunch soon. And probably knit.

Starr took my Vintage Winter Shawl class at the SC Knitting Guild's 2014 Knit Inn last February, and we have since kept up with each other on Facebook.  I love that she came to see me...and she bought a kit, too!

She wins Denim Jacket.

Wendy from Spinsjal came to SAFF in the coolest jean jacket I've ever seen. She's always got something brewing on her blog and I wish we'd had more time to chat!!

Pat from Bird Mountain Creations was as much fun to hang out with all weekend as I expected. I love her zest for living and her sense of excitement that she carries around with her everywhere. She's never met a stranger and is one of the most generous people I know. She is an encourager and a bright light in a dark world. Plus, tutus.

What a weekend, right? And I've only just scratched the surface. Next time I'll show you sock yarn dying in action and introduce you to some of the lovely vendors (of which there were many!).
