What a crazy night for the Eastside Stitchers.
I got to Crossroads a bit after 5 pm, just as Wajio was arriving. We pushed 2 tables together and sat down to knit. GwenS showed up a bit after, with Darling Addie and her DD in tow. At about 5:30 a fire alarm started blaring, and the security walked through the mall, ushering everyone out. Wireknitter had arrived by this time. So most of us grouped together at the front of the mall, and waited to see how long it would take until the mall reopened.
I had to run home to get something for Wireknitter that I had forgotten, and when I returned, there were clumps of people waiting around the mall entrances, both workers and shoppers. I saw BlueBerryMary and Dreamweaver19 walking laps around the mall, getting their steps in while waiting. When the employees told us that the mall would not be opening again that night, we decided to head behind the mall, to a strip of restaurants (Dough Zone is my favorite dumpling house!). We got food at the various little restaurants
When I got home, and logged on to Ravelry, I saw that ReadnitDream and DomesticShorthair both made it to Crossroads, but couldn't find anyone because the mall was closed. I am so sorry that we missed them!
