Retreats, Snow, Anniversaries, Snow, Knitting, Snow, Ice, Slippery Roads, Snow, GREAT FRIENDS!!!


Is it really MARCH already??? February FLEW by...it was almost like there were only 29 days in it or something. So much has happened! The biggest news, in this writer's opinion, is the one year anniversary of Yarn Haven's opening!
happy anniversary
Bobbie and Dale Ann, thank you, so much, for providing a warm, wonderful place for all of us fiber friends to grow in friendship and yarn stash! You are each so precious to us!
Interesting that when the shop opened, there was a blizzard. The one year anniversary was marked with lots of snow and slippery roads as well.
The weekend prior was the First Annual InsanKnitty Knitting Retreat! Keep your eyes peeled for retreat dates for NEXT year. Here's a small recap of some of the fun:

Pat, Linda, and Cher working diligently. Cher...you dressed?

Beth's 888 hour afghan is looking GREAT!

Gina and Bobbie gettin' slap happy!

Jessica...totally focused.

...and Julie looking quite stunning and wide awake.

Did we ever determine who else is pregnant?

Becky brought her gorgeous spinning wheel and mesmerized us all with her beautiful yarn!

At almost 2 AM Pat finished her sampler scarf that had been on the needles for almost a year! We were rooting her on by staying up until it was finished!

So, it's Tuesday night, Knit Night, and here we are...6:31 PM and it's Dale Ann, Mary, Kathy, Maria and myself staring out at the frozen tundra before us. Yes, the icy pellets of freezing rain are falling from the sky and causing rather slippery roads...and YES, it's probably dangerous to even consider driving in these conditions. HOWEVER....
