Shop Hop 2009

Shop Hoppers Catherine & Pat say...

"Shop 'till ya drop!"

Shop Hop 2009 was a big hit for the Stockinette Shop Hoppers and Yarn Store Owners alike. According to Shop Hop organizer Kathy Morrow, there were 43 entrees in this year's Shop Hop drawing.

The Shop Hop end date coincided with the Retreat dates so many Retreat attendees hit the Truckee and Lake Tahoe Shops during the Retreat.

Here is a recap of Shop Hop 2009:

Doris, Mary, Lauren (shop owner) Susan & Jude
Shopping at The Knitting Nest

Many Stockinettes made the scenic drive and visited Lauren Wayne's darling boutique shop The Knitting Nest at the top of the mountain in Stateline NV during the Retreat. Everyone was "wowed" by Lauren's creative displays and her shop's unique yarn selections.

Lauren Wayne, owner of The Knitting Nest

Free hat patterns were given out to the Stockinettes at every shop during Shop Hop 2009. What a great idea! Many Shop Owners offered specials to the Stockinette shoppers, too. A big thank you to all the wonderful Shop Owners for making the Shop Hop such a fun shopping event!

Shopping is always more fun with your family & friends!
(Sisters Karen & Linda, Daniella & Mom and Lea)

Many Stockinette shoppers found some fabulous yarn selections at The Wool Tree in South Lake Tahoe during the Retreat.

Shopper Karen E. said fellow shopper Lea did a "happy dance" at The Wool Treee when she spotted some Trendsetter yarn she had been searching for! Yes, the Stockinette Shoppers know how to shop and have a good time!

And the Winners Are....

Close Knit Friends Jude & Doris

Drum roll please...the Grand Prize Shop Hop Award goes to Doris!

Doris K.'s name was drawn as the Grand Prize winner for Shop Hop 2009. Doris and her best knitting buddy Jude made a deal that if either of them won in the Shop Hop, they would share their winnings. Well, their shopping efforts paid off for visiting all of the 13 shops in the Shop Hop. Congratulations Doris, and of course, Jude, too!
