Shop Hop 2008

The Black Sheep Knitting Guild waits patiently to check out.

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!

Kim gets a kick out of signing her patterns.

  1. I know that getting ready for ShopHop is hard work, but the payoff is seeing old friends and what they’ve knit over the past year, and making new friends. But to have a ‘homegrown’ designer present is really encouraging. If SHE can, then maybe there’s someone else out there who can, too! Go Kim! Marge
