While I was in Lansing for the Michigan gathering at KissnTell's, I went to two LYS with CherylD. One is Rae's Yarn Boutique, and they were having a sale. I spend mumblemumblemumble and they were kind enough to set it aside for me, as I had left my $$ in the car, which was a mile away. Later that day, we went to Sticks & Strings, and I spend about the same amount of $$ as I did at Rae's; they were also having some of their yarn on sale and I actually bought enough to make something for ME!! Which, of course, I haven't started yet. Someday, when I retire . . . Anyway, both stores were staffed with knowledgeable women, and had way more yarn than I'll ever have money for. S & S said that if we wanted to do another Michigan group thing, they have an air-conditioned room upstairs which we could use . . . something to think about for next time?? I recommend both stores, and will no doubt spend mumblemumblemumble again the next time I'm in town. Consider yourselves warned about the dangers of entering either establishment!
