This year’s Shop Hop was a blast! It started with a group celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday party (they even mailed a sign ahead so we surprised her at the door!), then came the Black Sheep Knitting Guild with their busload of 20+ and the day ended with carpools of Clarkston’s library knitting group. In between we took a few breaths and enjoyed the fashion parade. It is always fun to see what everyone has knit over the year.
Also during the event we were pleased to host a trunk show from Knitting Matters and Kim Smith was on hand to sign her patterns, answer questions and help make yarn selections. A couple of her fans showed up in vests knit from Kim’s patterns and were kind enough to pose for the camera. Truly a good time was had by all . . . I know this because the home made brownies and cookie bars were but crumbs on the plate and we ran out of Shop Hop gifts. What a day!
