From the second the gates opened until the "get out" announcement, that was one hoppin' booth. People waiting to get in the booth! My biggest challenge was staying out of the way while simultaneously being available to assist all the lovely yarn crazed people. Tina set up a couple of "get in here and check this out" displays that were very effective. At one end of the booth, she had a shawl, I believe it's called Rennaisance, knit in colorway Cinders (again, if my memory is working), a black and grey variegated colorway, with red beads knit into the shawl just popping with "look at me" excitement. At the other end of the booth, her Stardust Lace sparkly yarns, with a particularly delicious colorway named Beloved (I think/hope) showing off the sparkly so beautifully, practically grabbed anyone attempting to walk on by. I did indeed witness whiplash more than once. I had to laugh. One of the first customers of the day said she didn't want sparkly because she believed the fad was fading. Ha! Other customers did not get that notice. "Oooooooo, Sparkly!" pretty much echoed throughout the day and those yarns just WHOOOSHed right outta there. It was a bit like a piranha feeding frenzy. And the moment I'd tell a customer that yes indeed, Stardust comes in sock weight too, well, you'd think the place was full of lottery winners.
I know. Where are the photos? I suck. I brought my camera but when I pulled it out of my purse at home to tuck into my fiber festival bag, the essential little piece that is the door to the battery fell back into the purse without my noticing. The camera will not take photos without that piece. I should just take my camera, get back in the car, and go back to get photos. But my attention starved doggies would cry, so you'll have to settle for photos of them.
