Yeah, when I've done the quilting hops, I usually just pick a few stores to hit.

Just thought I'd post a pic of the 'Oddball Care Shawl" I just finished! Since Martha got to see it, and because I'm so proud of it! Everyone who knitted on it did such a great job!

So, I only made it to Craft-O-Rama this weekend and it's a cute little place. COnnected to Amy's Ice Cream which is dangerous! Not a ton of anything...maybe 20-30 bolts of fabric, 3 or 4 shelves worth of yarn, a corner with needles and such...5 or 6 sewing machines, 2 maybe 3 big tables to cut and measure fabric on...some shirts and bags and little knitting kits that were cute...on the check out counter are some little do-dads and some novelty knitting needles (Hello Kitty or Dice).

So it has a little of everything and the lady that was there is SUPER nice.
