We left for SAFF from Steve's house at 6 AM and got there a little after 9 AM. It was after midnight by the time I got home. Not many things I would spend 20 hours of my day devoted to. We had a really good time and it was so much fun seeing all of the other fiber fiends roaming and buying and trading stories of found treasures. I finished Michael's sweater in the car about a half an hour before we got there.
Here's a pic of Steve, myself, Brett and Lou in the alpaca barn.
I had already explained to Michael that I had to wear his sweater first for SAFF and he was very gracious and understanding. It was very comfortable and perfect for the cool weather while we were there.
After spending the whole day at SAFF, Claudia and her husband invited us to stay for dinner at the cabin they had rented for the week and treated us to a wonderful home cooked meal along with a wonderful sunset view from the back porch before heading back to Atlanta.
Michael wore his sweater to church this morning and it looks great on him. He told the class while I was out of the room it was his own special portable 'hug' to keep. He wanted the class to know I made it for him, but knows how I get embarrassed easily and didn't want me to feel too self conscious. Several people came up and gave me compliments afterward which was really nice. I felt so proud that he liked the sweater and it felt so good that he liked it so much that he wanted to do a little bragging about it.
Once I get all the pictures downloaded and rest a little more, I'll post more from the trip. I'll also take pics of the treasures I came home with too.
