The Atlanta area shop hop is coming up in September. As this is bound to be of interest to some members, I thought I'd better put a link here. The link will take you to the shop hop blog, which will keep you up to date on participating shops and those great prizes!
The shop hop is an opportunity to have some fun with friends, as carpooling is a good idea indeed. And it is a chance to get around and see what the shops have, as each shop is different and carries different yarns and related items. This is also a very good opportunity to make a wish list for those upcoming December gift-giving holidays -- make the shopping easy on others by letting them know what sorts of things you like and where they can be found. And if you are missing a skein or two, this is also a chance to fill out those gaps in the stash. As the Yarn Harlot reminds us, you never know when there might be a sudden international shortage of wool. (Somehow this sounds like the first chapter of a science fiction novel -- the invading aliens abscond with sheep from New Zealand to Iceland while the dogs are left barking at the skies.)
