NEFF 2014

NEFF 2014 has come and gone! This year just confirmed my feeling that NEFF is my personal favorite fiber festival. Working the booth for A Hundred Ravens is a pleasure — Kate is a great boss, and it’s easy to sell her gorgeous yarn :). I love talking with customers and helping them find projects and yarn to make them … or yarn, and something to make out of it.

Here’s a quick peek of the booth, in case you missed out on NEFF …

Of course I “ran away from home” and did a little shopping too. Here’s my loot for the weekend:

I have projects for everything, except the fiber of course. (That has to turn into yarn before I can decide what to do with it.)  My not-fiber purchase is a beautiful wood yarn bowl from Dan Tracy Designs:

a stray skein of already-wound Aesir in Starry Night will become an Into Gold hat, eventually (the pattern isn’t quite available yet):
