A Stormy Weekend

Hi, this is Cathy and I am just checking in to find out how you all made it through the rough weather we had over the weekend. There were some amazingly damaging winds. The weather did not last long in Linden, not much rain, but big winds and some big branches down with tree damage.
In Grand Blanc the shop was under 1/2 power for Monday. We were open and ready to serve the knitting community but had extension cords, portable lights in the restroom and no air conditioning. The restaurant next door was closed and the parking lot was empty. It was oh so strange. I heard stories about no power from Gaines to parts of Grand Blanc. We are all hoping the inconvenience can be corrected soon.
On a more optimistic note, we are gearing up for 'fun in the sun' on wwkipday. World Wide Knit in Public day can be shared on the grassy knoll across the parking lot from Ewe To You Yarns in Grand Blanc on Saturday June 14. We will be offering a chance to dye some sock yarn. Join us for a relaxing day of knitting with friends and fellow knitters and sign up to make your own hand dyed socks. We have a limited amount of undyed sock yarn, so sign up soon. We supply the yarn, the dye and a basic sock pattern for $20.00 and you supply the creativity. Happy knitting
