Swatching fun at Thread Bear

Hello everyone!

I wanted to update you all on my fun day at Thread Bear in Lansing. There was a great group of bloggers there knitting for the day. It was so much fun! Lynne was there from
and Laurie from and Susie from and Laura from West Michigan and Sharon from Lansing – I am sure I am missing someone, so forgive me in advance! It was a wonderful day, we knit and laughed and talked and ooohhh’d and aaahhhhhh’d over ALL the YARN at Thread Bear. Here is the best part, for knitting a swatch – they give their customers 10% off a purchase! Is that awesome or not. I have found another reason for the Harlot to recommend knitting a swatch! 😉 BTW, I heard that she is going to be in Ann Arbor on Sunday – not sure where, but that is what I heard!

The downer of the day was arriving home to discover my lower level (read finished basement) had flooded again. It was not a great way to end the day. Lynne and Laura – thanks for your listening ears on the way home. I sat down at 11:30PM and did what you suggested Lynne – I gave thanks for all that happened and felt like I was surely at the bottom with no where to go but up!

Here is the second perk – I am going to get to knit with Lynne and Laura again on Thursday. See – it is getting better already.

I went today to pick out new floor coverings, but I am most excited for the plumber to arrive tomorrow morning – I am not putting ANYTHING back until he GUARANTEES me that this won’t happen again! I know, I am not asking for much!

Well, my break better be over – my tea is finished – back to work for me! Have a great afternoon all!
