|Marker-Miller Orchards in Winchester VA|
I kept my cool but when my husband started pointing out the 'perfect' apples to help her friend, I mentioned that I like her hat. She smiled and said she knit it. I grinned and showed her my handknit socks. I asked her if she was going to Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival next weekend. She lit up like I had told her Disney World was coming to town. She said she didn't know about the fiber festival so I gave her the website info. She got all excited and said she had a whole bunch of friends who were impressed with her knitting and wanted to learn. I told her to bring them along. Converts are good for the knitting world.
It keeps us on our toes in the vendor markets.
