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 http://iwasknittogetherinmymotherswomb.typepad.com/
and Laurie from http://abitsheepish.blogspot.com/ and Susie from http://toknitperchancetodream.net/ 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!

The Yarn Harlot will be in Ann arbor on Sun at the main library - downtown Ann Arbor - at 2, I think. I plan to arrive early!

Sorry to hear about your basement flooding! Sounds like otherwise it was a good time!
