So my favorite yarn store had their 5th anniversary party tonight. An evening of comraderie, treats, and yarn. Yay!
To prepare, I joined in a knit-along, making a bag for the occasion
I also made a cupcake (but I didn't take a picture)
We all got goodie bags, including this mug that is coming to work with me. And a string of green pearls
While I was there, I won a door prize!
Isn't it beautiful?
There was also a tricky tray/Chinese auction, and I won TWICE!
A knitting for men book and 10 skeins of 100% silk yarn
A pack of pattern books, and 3 skeins of gorgeous wool
Here's my stash. I'm stoked!!!
But the best part of this party was that the proceeds from our evening went to 2 great programs--Angel's Closet and VNA/Hospice. The evening raised $1300 for them.
Congrats on 5 years, Joanne! I had a great time.
