The First Annual Boston Farm & Fiber Event was a raging success!!! A million thank you's to all the folks who braved a cold rainy Sunday to come out and geek out over yarns and fiber goodies. I had no idea what to expect, but the crowd size was beyond my wildest hopes! I got to meet so many creative, passionate knitters on Sunday!
I made the rookie mistake of not bringing a booth helper, which both meant that conversations were sometimes cut short (which I regret and apologize for) and also that I was unable to explore all the other amazing booths and goings on. I heard great things about the knitting lounge (which I very much wanted to hang out in) and about the other vendors there. A big thank you to everyone who put up with me asking about the other goodies in their knitting bags, so I could at least live vicariously. And a huge thank you as well to all the folks, including my vending neighbors, my sister-in-law, a representative of the Boston Public Market, and at one point a Woolscout Knitting Retreat participant, who realized that I was solo and very kindly offered to watch my booth for me for water/food/restroom breaks. It's a little thing, but it underscores for me how caring and supportive knitters/crafters are as a group.
On Monday I woke up feeling like I had spent Sunday taking part in some sort of obscure endurance event, exhausted, but still on a bit of runners high. It will take me a little while to survey the remains of my inventory, update my website, and catch up on my dyeing (see previous post about the state of my future dyespace) so I thank you all for your patience. And as always, if you have any questions, or would like to make sure that a specific color/yarn kit returns, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
