SAFF - Days 1 and 2 - The Fun Begins!

On Friday the weather was pretty miserable. It was cold and rainy. Even though we were outside in the sales arena we still got a lot of traffic. We really were not sure what to expect since this was our first year but we did better than we expected so we were excited!!!! We saw a couple of alpacas.........

Worked the booth - we are such a GREAT team!!:

Then on Saturday the weather was beautiful and we did a BUNCH of business! Lots of people stopped by the booth to introduce themselves and we saw lots of friends that we hadn't seen in a while. We had SO MUCH FUN!!!!

Claudia and Sandy stopped by.

And Claudia just happened to win the Knit Witch raffle prize!!! Congratulations Claudia! I will post pictures of all the "loot" tomorrow.

Then there were the "Sheep Guys". Famous Steve, Lou, Doug and Stuart.

At the end of the day Saturday we got together with the Atlanta crowd at a Thai Restaurant. Before that though, Cristi and JP came to our hotel and we got started with the festivities before dinner! We had a great time. I can tell you right now that the 4 of us are a dangerous (yet wildly amusing) combination.

What a ham eh?

We had dinner with The Sheep Guys, Sandy, Claudia, Regan, Grace, Jane and Kat (who incidentally neutered our dog - well the neutering wasn't incidental, you know what I mean). I hope I'm not leaving anyone out!

OK - I think that is enough pictures for one day. More tomorrow!!

Looks like such a blast! Some day when I am independently wealthy or retired I will travel around to all these yarn festivals. :)

Hey, Mr. Man has his clothes on! How did you manage that?
I am so jealous that you got to hang with those cute alpacas.
