SnB-SLC is The BEST anywhere

It is. I believe this without knowing any other SnB anywhere else. Why is this, you might ask? Well, how about Ten Things that make the Salt Lake City SnB the Best SnB? and feel free to come up with you own list! 1. The outpouring of sincere emotion for our sweet David's passing 2. The warm, friendly location where we meet and eat the Best BLT's and Italian sodas in SLC - The Jitterbug 3. A really, really diverse group. Really diverse. 4. Everyone gets a Cheers' "NORM" greeting when they walk in the door - everyone might not actually know your name, yet, but they know what's on your needles, and eventually everyone does know your name 5. You can be MIA and everyone still welcomes you back like you neve left (but they were wondering where you've been...)and YOU wonder why in the world you would ever have gone MIA from this group in the first place? 6. We have multi-talented members who go whole hog into whatever it is they do - likeLaurie, who didn't stop at learning to make soap just for herself. Uh uh. She launched a business! Blessed Juno soap is the most wonderful, aromatic soap and she is always developing new formulations, fragrances & textures out of the best natural ingredients, and we of the SLC-SnB get to try and buy first - like her "Hand Knit", created just in time for our anniversary. 7. Diet busting birthday parties 8.The best Vet referral so that now my poor Maggie's miserable skin troubles are almost over. And: 9 & 10, Tah-dah!: Susan and Mim - We have not ONE, but TWO recently published designers here in our SLC SnB. Susan has two of her sock patterns in Vogue's new Ultimate Sock Book, and Miriam's breathless Icarus Shawl is gracing the cover of the just published Best of Interweave Knits http://bestofknits.blogspot.com/ Not their first publications, but certainly high profile! What are you're Top Ten reasons why your Snb is the Best? It's just an honor and such good fortune to be able to slip away to this cocoon for 3 hours every week! I'm trying to move off of blogger and over to typepad and reactivate my blog there, but haven't quite figured it all out yet, so I will post photos next time.
