Ann's By Design is participating in the I-75 Yarn Crawl which goes from Michigan through Tennessee and Kentucky during the first week in August. I love Yarn Crawls. They are a great way to explore new LYS AND decide which one's you love so much that you want to go back. When I came back from the Coastal Condo in May I was troubled by the discussion around what would be happening during the 2018 I-75 Yarn Crawl at Ann's By Design. There must be something that says, "Hippy, Skippy! I've just found my new favorite LYS and I am coming back!" I didn't hear anything in the planning that would make visitors do that. I know from experience that many LYS participating in a crawl have authors or designers as a draw. That's when I got to thinking. . .
During the 2018 I-75 Yarn Crawl, I will be the designer in residence AND author in residence at Ann's By Design. After all, I guess Knitting: A Love Story makes me an author. I have committed to being at Ann's By Design just waiting to interact with Yarn Crawl participants every free minute I have that week. I am pretty excited about introducing potential readers to Knitting: A Love Story. I reiterate, "What have I gotten myself into!?!?!?!"
