Going to Bowling Green, OH

Hello all you Black Sheep!

This is my first attempt at posting on the blog.  Just wanted to let everyone know how great a time we had at the Black Swamp Spinners Guild Market Day in Bowling Green, OH yesterday.  We had an extremely large group of Black Sheep who ventured south - 17 in total!  We had a wonderful time there, going from vendor to vendor, trying not to spend our entire bank accounts.

We chatted with Amy of Bad Amy Knits - bought her yarn and lots of her bags.

Across the aisle from Bad Amy was one of our favorites - Briar Rose.

 I got to show Chris (Briar Rose) the lovely sweater I made from her yarn and pattern.  Her yarn is so lovely.



And finally, we had our yearly group photo taken by a friendly knitter.


I know , I know.  The number of Black Sheep in this picture is only 15.  Wylie and Judith had left before we took it.

Oh, and Michele won a beautiful knitting book in one of the raffles they had.

We did manage to hook up with Wylie and Judith when we all drove into downtown Bowling Green and ate at the Easystreet Cafe.  It's a great bar/restaurant with wonderful food.

Some of us then drove to Perrysburg, OH to visit a great yarn shop - Yarn Cravin.  It's a wonderful little shop in an old house.  Yarn in every room.  We manage to visit every year. (and purchase more yarn, of course!)

The drive home was uneventful.  It was a lovely day and we all had a great time.  Some also went over to Kim T.'s house afterwards to knit and help her celebrate her birthday.  Happy Birthday Kim!
