Did someone say SHOPPING?




Our sponser for November was Gifted, the yarn shop inside Beaumont Hospital. Not only did they give us an incredibly generous gift for our raffle, they also provided us with a 10% off shopping day! Nearly half of our members were there and created a shopping frenzy. At least a few bought a kit for a felted purse that we can't wait to see! Get knitting, Kim and Judith! We want pictures STAT!

What makes Gifted so special? They carry a huge selection of Fleece Artist kits, Tanya had some socks at our last meeting that were made from a kit purchased at Gifted, and Chris found a kit she just had to call her own. Louise thinks they may just have every color of Manos that exists! And can you say BEE-YOOO-TI-FUL? I'm not sure the picture does it justice. There were patterns galore, displayed so nicely that you could hardly walk away from them. Kim and Judith got caught up in the sale area, where they got an ADDITIONAL mark down on the already discounted clearanced items. Judith picked out a kit to make some cute-as-can-be booties for kids she doesn't have, or know. . .if these make it to the charity pile, there will be some lucky babies in Oakland County. Tanya picked out some Schaefer yarn called "Miss Priss" and stood debating on the color,not for the colors themselves, but because of how they're named after influential women. Indira Gandhi? Toni Morrison? Gertrude Ederle? The choice was tough. Katy was there early, so we can't brag about what she bought, but Katy, if you're looking for the pattern you left behind, Louise has it. And do tell us what you found! Coralee got caught IN a picture for once instead of behind the camera.
I'm not sure if it was the discount, the fun of shopping with friends, or a true illness, but some stash enhancement happened for all of us! What a great day!
