Spinning Loft and Yarn Harlot

Earlier this week I took some much needed 'me time' and headed down to the Spinning Loft in Howell, MI – picking up Melynda on the way of course – for two awesome days of classes with the wonderful Yarn Harlot. I learned a lot, laughed so hard my face hurt, made new friends (Hi Steven!) and got inspired to try new techniques. It was the best time.

Unfortunately, I forgot my Nikon but was able to get some shots with my phone…

Thank you so much Stephanie and Beth for putting on such a wonderful event. I had a great time and learned a lot while getting a much needed Mommy's Time Out!
