fiber show tonight and tomorrow

I dropped off some yarn this morning for the Whatcom Weavers Guild's Fibers and Beyond show. This will be my second year doing the show. I was a little surprised by how well my sock yarn sold last year, so I brought a bunch of my Willow BFL sock yarn and Cascara merino/cashmere/nylon sport, plus some silk/merino, Targhee and BFL spinning fiber, and a few other random things. It's marked down a bit as I have some plans for new colorways and sock clubs, and I'd really like to clear out some storage space.

I'm working the floor tonight, which I'm excited about because I'll get to see all the goodies early. When I was there, there was already a rack of handspun and three giant baskets of gorgeously dyed fiber. I saw a woman with a pile of vivid felted wall hangings getting checked in. And the weaving! Oh my, the weaving. We have some brilliant weavers in the guild.

I love how pretty the show floor is, too. There are some people with a real knack for display and merchandising, and every year it gets more and more polished looking.
