If you live in SE Michigan and knit...

Hold on to your britches!

The Rhinebeck vendor with "the most coveted yarn,"* whose product makes knitters want to "back up a trailer and take it all home,"** THAT vendor is coming to Ann Arbor and Flint in the next few weekends.

Briar Rose Fibers is making a little road trip to the area on three upcoming Saturdays. Here's the schedule (reprinted with BRF owner Chris Roosien's enthusiastic permission):

Open House at Nancy Melet's
Saturday, November 18th from 10-5
218 Pine Ridge St.
Ann Arbor, MI

Open House at Nancy Melet's
Saturday, December 2nd from 10-5
218 Pine Ridge St.
Ann Arbor MI

Open House at Michael and Kay Melet's
Saturday December 9th from 10-5
3806 Wroxton, Apt #4
Flint, MI

Only rigid family fiscal policy allows me to ensure I won't buy it all in the first hour on the 18th.

*Spincerely Yours

I'll tell you more once I've *loaded up* in a week.

I can say I've seen the yarn twice in person. Once at the fiber arts festival and again, a week later, at Inish Knits in Cedar,Michigan.

Its primary appeal to me is its colors, which are oh-so-rich and very, very autumnal. Ever go walking in the fall and wish you had a sweater that captured the leaves and the remaining greens? This is it.

I know less about its knitability.
