SAFF (the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair), in Asheville, NC. Four of us have gone there the past few years and had a great time. It's literally everything from sheep to shawl, although we have sworn off any yarn-buying this year. Right?
The past couple of years, we've had the use of an apartment, but it is not available this year, so we have rented a house. The apartment came complete with celebrity gossip magazines last year, but I think that the house will not. So I bought these today when I went to the grocery store. Yes, I was kind of embarrassed and I did feel as if I should explain to the teenaged boy checking me out that I don't usually buy this sort of thing, that I know I am the wrong demographic for them. My proof is that I don't even know who Emily is!!!
But then I decided that he probably really didn't care. I bought them and moved on. Last year we took turns reading them aloud; whoever just couldn't knit ONE MORE STITCH would read to the other three knitters. We're stocked up for this year.
Traditions are important!
