[Insert knitty title here]

I am not exactly feeling creative blog-wise. We had a super busy weekend. I worked Friday night... always a joy. We of course stayed up way too late and then my DH said yes to Joshua's request to driving across state.

Joshua wanted to go see his grandma and grandpa, we don't get over there often enough and felt it was a good day to go. It made for a long weekend of driving. I'm still recovering. The weather was quite crappy on the drive over so we decided to stay the night. We all had a great time and had a really nice visit. The boys were especially happy to see them. It was good for everyone.

While there we were able to go to Lake Orion and visit Heritage Spinning & Weaving. It is a wonderful store with all kinds of fiber related materials. I was immediately drawn to the woven scarf that is on their website and featured in Handwoven Magazine. It is the 4H Log Cabin Scarf and it is gorgeous. Joan was wonderful and so very helpful. I'm not ready to tell what came home with me but I will give you a hint... have you noticed a new web ring on my blog?

We headed back on Sunday morning and we couldn't very well drive by Lansing without a quick stop in at Threadbear! It's only been a week and they have even more stuff. I'm wondering how long before they buy out the Taco place next door and expand.

I picked up some more Cascade 220 Superwash in some nice spring colors, a few bobbins for my spinning wheel, some back issues of a magazine and the bag for my Joy. My DH got some cotton to make a knitted tee. It's so hard to get out of there without breaking my budget. At least now I can take my wheel out on the town when the mood hits me.

I am happy to say that Threadbear is now carrying the Knitterella greeting cards! How exciting. I am sad to say that my friend knitterella will be moving soon. She is taking a job with a new company working from home and will move back to her hometown. She's getting married later this year so actually living where she will be wed has to be easier. I wish her all the best and Jill, I will miss you.

As I am rereading what I'm blogging I realize that I have a bad case of run on sentence syndrome. That's okay, admitting I have a problem is the first step in correcting it. I hope everyone has a good night. Pictures will be coming soon... hopefully later tonight but certainly tomorrow.

You were in my neck of the woods - I live less than a mile from Heritage Spinning & Weaving. Joan is so friendly and her store has really grown over the last couple years. I love to go in there and drool over the wonderful colors.

I'm having the bag for my birthday which isn't for a while yet, but it makes it easier to get around though doesn't it?
