We LOVE the 'Yarn Harlot'

Brenda and I went to the Philadelphia Book Festival yesterday to see Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka, the Yarn Harlot..yes...THEE Yarn Harlot.  We were so excited!!  We took the train into Philly and were the 3rd and 4th knitters in line!!
(We WERE very excited!)  We were NOT disappointed.  She was 
 witty, SMART, and just plain wonderful:-) Usually everyone knits socks when going to see the Yarn Harlot, (she is known for her traveling sock...her version of Flat Stanley I think).  I was knitting this:
This is the valence I am making for Rachael's bedroom window.  However, I did take along a sock I started so I could blend in if needed.
Was I glad I did!!  Here is Brenda and I holding Stephanie's sock and she is holding mine.  Did I say we were the 3rd and 4th in line?  If you would like to see Brenda and I smack dab in the middle of the first row, click on here blog  and scroll down a little to May 19th.  Yes, we are the nerds taking pictures of her taking pictures of her sock.  
 We had a wonderful time and of course it was great to catch up with Brenda!

You two make me laugh! That's great mom, I'm happy that you got to sit in the first row AND take a picture with her! I'm really excited to see my window when I get home...See you Friday, love you.
