I thought I would pass along info on what I think would be a pretty nice day in Mystic CT. I can't go because its on Saturday but it sure looks neat. Mystic River Yarns is having their annual Designer Day on Nov. 18th. From 9-noon Jacqueline Fee is giving a class on the fundamentals of designing your own bottoms up, in the round sweater. They will have a lunch buffet and then in the afternoon Lily Chin will give a class on how to fix mistakes. The whole day, including the classes, lunch buffet and refreshments and booksignings after the afternoon class is $99. If you just want one class its $55 but even that includes lunch and the afternoon refreshments. There is a limit of 20 per each class. Their number is 860-536-4305. The shop is about a five minute walk from Mystic Seaport and about a 10minute drive to Mystic Aquarium so you could bring your SO and kids etc for the day and have them occupied. I'm very bummed this is on a Saturday. I would go in a heartbeat if it were on Sunday.
