Shannon Okey ROCKS!

We had Shannon Okey, author of "Spin to Knit" and "Knitgrrl" here on Saturday. It was fun, fun. Shannon is all energy. She gave a great class on spinning with alternative fiber. She is a total enabler. She roped in a woman visiting from New York and another woman who was here working on a sweater and taught them to spin.

She just knows so much and loves what she does so much. She brought great energy to the shop on a cold Saturday.

See pics here:

We want her to come back in the worst way. We'll keep you posted
