…. was a lot of fun! Thanks to everyone who popped in to check us out. We enjoyed meeting all of you and it was fun to share the Loopy space with other knitters again. I kept forgetting to take pictures all day, but here are a few:
Christy and Eileen. Christy has been an online orderer for over a year and is a Loopy Groupie. So fun to meet her in person! Eileen asked me where I went to high school. (Which is a question that only the St. Louis people will understand. Eileen lived in St. Louis before here. I haven’t been asked that question for months. It’s a weird-joke-St.Louis thing…) Eileen’s sister-in-law was watching her on the webcam from Wisconsin. (Hi, Eileen’s sister-in-law!)
Pat who traveled up from Highland’s Ranch with her friend (who did not want to be in the photo, as she was here incognito), and became instant BFF’s with Elf Jody, because she told Jody she’d teach her to knit. Never mind that we’ve offered this to Jody before. Apparently she was waiting for Pat to appear and offer.
Some of the knitters who came for our first Loopy Knit Night, which was fun! I frogged something twice before deciding that I had to find a simpler thing to knit when I’m surrounded by other knitters. There were others there who managed to chat and knit something that takes a brain at the same time, but apparently I was not one of them. (Please note Herman-the-mail-cart eavesdropping in the background there.)
We’re looking forward to more fun shoppers today and tomorrow. Stop in if you’re near us in Colorado! (And I only remind you of the state because we still get a few calls a week from people wanting to know our hours …. and they live in St. Louis.)
