What a busy couple of days it has been! It began with a celebration of the royal wedding at the shop on Thursday night, encompassed another wedding on Friday night, a Knit a Thon on Saturday, a Sheep to Shawl Festival on Sunday and mixed in with it all was a surprise visit from D#2!
If we are friends on Facebook, you already know that a bunch of us got together to knit the entire Royal Wedding Party. It was a true group effort – some knit the entire person, others knit portions of outfits while others worked hard on the embellishments. We certainly had a lot of laughs. On Thursday night, we had a reception! Anyone who didn’t knit, catered the affair – cucumber sandwiches, scones, wedding cake and champagne, of course!
The Knit a Thon is in its third year, but is a first for us. We were asked to host it this year and it benefits YAI, an organization that helps disabled people and their families. That too was tons of fun with lots of door prizes thrown in! We also raised over $3,100!! although I didn’t get any good pictures. : (
Sunday was the annual Huntington Sheep to Shawl. Huntington combines this with their tulip festival and there is always lots going on. This year, we got to see the militia – they are usually set up at across the street in a largish field. The kids were so cute with their wooden rifles being asked to stand at attention etc. We had great weather and another fun day!
and now I need another weekend to recover from my weekend!
