There was only one drawback - Dr. Stacey took my picture (possibly for the Knit One newsletter) ! I HATE having my picture taken. And 98% of all pictures of me are completely hideous. But I was knitting a simple garter stitch shawl with the Magic Ball yarn (in Halloween colorway) that I had purchased from the shop maybe a month ago. It really looked like candy corn as I was knitting it up. I'm terribly disappointed however because 2 ends of fiber in the Magic Ball split in the middle of my knitting and I had to unravel my shawl so that I can start over WITHOUT holes popping up in the middle of my shawl. (Pictures to come as soon as I re-start it.)
The shop is wonderful and so is the staff.. if you're ever in the Mars area, please stop in and support their shop! I can't wait for knitting group next Wednesday afternoon!
