Fun at SAFF!

Just returned from a beautiful weekend in Asheville. Belva, Susan, Amanda and I do a girls trip to the mountains each year and we couldn't have picked a better weekend for amazing fall colors! Aren't our leaves gorgeous this year?

The Southeast Animal Fiber Festival was busy! Friday is our day to shop SAFF and to see friends like The Unique Sheep and Miss Babbs and The Knit Witch. This year we saw a few changes as the event continues to grow. The alpaca barn was a new vendor area. Several vendors who we used to see in the barns were inside as new vendors took their places. And probably glad to be inside as a misty rain held steady on Friday. But fiber lovers are resilient, right?!

Saturday we woke up to a chilly, sunny fall day; perfect for walking and shopping. We hit a huge shoe outlet and the Asheville mall. We stayed in The Biltmore Village so walking the village is always a delight!

The drive home was fun-plenty of good conversation and more yarn and fiber (and shoes) than we could almost fit in the car.
