Being a SAFF veteran I gave her a little advice:
- Have a list of yarns your interested in (weight and yardage) for projects.
- Avoid having a specific color picked out for aforementioned projects.
- The first round is for seeing what's available. The second round is for purchasing.
- You must buy soap at the Soapshed.
- You must buy goats milk fudge.
- Had no list of yarns, instead picked out vendors I wanted to purchase from specifically. Miss Babs, The Knit Witch, Kitchen Sink Dyeworks, and the best goat's milk fudge in the world.
- Had no list of weights or yardage, but specific colors picked out. Aqua, yellow, and orange.
- Bought several things on my first round, such as the honey sticks I bought within 20 feet of the door.
- I did not buy soap, but smelled every bar again.
- Fudge was my second purchase.
Yes, that is all of it. Two skeins for Kauni EG, one skein KSD sock yarn , two small skeins of Miss Babs and not early enough KnitWitch sock yarn in the pile (very bottom). Well all of the fibery purchases, I also bought 4 flavors of honey sticks, two tiny cookie cutters (a heart and a star) and the fudge, which I managed not to eat until I got home and shared it with Mr. TURBO thankyouverymuch.
We also visited animals. It was so funny to see Amy interact with all the animals. Normally I go with my BFF and college roomie Leslie, who was an ag major like me, but she just had a baby in September and wasn't ready for any travel yet. So this time my traveling buddy was a little less Dr. DoLittle and a little more City Slicker. There was very little touching of the animals until this awesome sheep, who loved her chin scritched.
