A day with the ladies...

No hubby, no baby. What a wonderful thing to try every once in a while.

We visited the craft show at Fenton High School. Lots of beaded jewelry and fun fur scarves. Finally saw one of the so-real babies up close. Very freaky. We then headed out to find Elaine's Yarn in Davison. Not the easiest if you don't pay attention to the street signs. Evidently E. Flint and W. Flint are very similar in addresses. We made it there and it was well worth two turn arounds. What a lovely shop! It's in an old Victorian house. The woman that runs it was very helpful and incredibly nice. I now have natural fiber yarn in my stash. I also picked up one of the famous chibis. $4.95 for a blue one rather than $50 for one on Ebay.

We had lunch at The French Laundry in Fenton. Yum! Who knew a grilled cheese could be even better with the addition of bacon and raisin bread?

The knitting began at Moshel's house after the afternoon out. We all decided to give our hands a try at making bunnies out of squares. This my first project using mohair. It's interesting. I'm bummed the wrong side is so much fuzzier than the right. I may turn it inside out before constructing. We'll see.
