Did you have a busy weekend? Me too! I spent most of Saturday with my friend Kate, trying our best to help out the small businesses in our area. We bought tons of weaving yarn at Forma Fiber Arts in Whitmore Lake, then headed over to the metropolis of Dixboro to the Antique Store/Button Lady. Starved, we walked next door and had a great grilled cheese sandwich and bowl of soup at the Moonwinks Cafe and treated ourselves to Zingerman's version of King Dons -- yummy!
Next up was the village of Northville where we hit the Center Street Knits (picked up a cute pattern for a cardigan) and Dancing Eye Gallery (found a great ceramic button). Both are super shops and the gallery was especially bustling.
On our way home Kate was kind enough to stop at Cantoro Italian Market in Livonia so I could get my fix of Italian goodies. Pasta, cheese, fresh bread, good wine, and a cannolo for my dessert -- deliziosa!
I spent Sunday knitting hats to be felted -- it rained and rained all day so it was easy to stay inside! Now my hands are numb but there's still more knitting to do. Sweat shop work is never done!
