KNITTERPALOOZA ROCKED!!!


I can't even begin to describe what a great time I had yesterday at Knitterpalooza 2007, in Lansing. Great friends, great shopping, great food. And even a birthday presents! Woo Hoo!!

We started our day with a small group of seven. All from Detroit. And all eager for the day to begin. Here we are outside ThreadBear in Lansing, anxiously waiting for the doors to open and the shopping to commence. (Caitlin, Daisy, Amy, Beth, Diane and Angela)

(Pictures of my yarn shopping haul can be seen here: Knitterpalooza 2007 (Flickr))

We also visited Rae's Yarn Boutique. I was so excited to be there, I forgot to take a picture. Sorry Rae.

And an antique mall that has a yarn store in it. It also had the scariest looking devil dolls I have ever seen. (I'm just glad I was so tired last night that I didn't have nightmares) Can you say Demon Dolls? (If I couldn't before, I can now)

The day was also filled with early birthday presents.

From Beth:


And Larj Marj:


In our yarn grab at the picnic, I got this great skein of Jitterbug. And you all know how much I love Jitterbug. Cha Ching!!! I hit the Jackpot with that grab! Thanks Toya! Funny thing was Toya grabbed the yarn I brought. How funny is that!!!


And Dana surprised me with the greatest handmade stitch markers. Thanks Dana, they're great.


Do I have the best friends in the world, or what? I know I do, so you don't have to even consider answering that.
Hope everyone else had as good a weekend as I did.
