The Glitter Knitter and the Yarn Garage at the 2009 Knitout at the Mall of America

Man we had a party at the MOA. Steven had a booth that spilled out into the walk and thousands of knitters and crocheters turned out and met Steven and the top quality Yarn Garage team.

Something new this year, Bob White, who is generally the Webmaster and the fiddler for the Yarn Garage served as a chauffer and shuttled folks out to the Yarn Garage in his 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton. There they were able to shop for the fine fibers that Steven has in abundance at the shop.

One woman commented, "We wanted to thank you for the great time we had at the Yarn Garage. We would not have been able to make it without your driver service. We really appreciated Bob's willingness for the early pick up on Sunday. He even didn't complain when I made the call at 6:00AM on Sunday morning. ( I really didn't expect him to answer. I thought I would be leaving a message). We were able to get our shopping done and still make it back to the Mall for the afternoon of madness with thousands of other knitters.
We had a great time at the Yarn Garage. The staff, Lori and Tori ( I may be screwing up the names) were terrific. They climbed ladders, searched for colors and fibers just so we would get the perfect combinations. I will definitely be keeping your name and number when searching for fiber and stuff.
Thanks again
