NEFFA is great, as usual. They have expanded Lower Hall with a tent this year and the tent is great. Only problem to get to Lower Hall you must cross pavement with grit. Grit ruins suede soles and dance floors. Bring your street shoes to get there. Let's hope they get some mats put down.
On the right, Himself in the Main Hall at about 10:30. It's not overly crowded. On the left, Lisa and the woman from Roaring Jelly who I can't remember her name, conducting the "festival orchestra' -- i.e., open to anyone who wants to bring an instrument and is familiar with the standard playbook.
And, of course, there was knitting. One perpetual sock finished, the next started on the way there.
Made in Italy, 80% machine wash wool, 20% polyamid. I've made a couple pairs out of it and it washes/dries/wears well.
