Obsession Is Normal
So, Saturday night I went with my dear (blogless) friend Rachel to hear Stephanie Yarn Harlot Stephanie speak at the Park Slope Barnes & Noble. I am actually sitting way in the back. Thank goodness for the zoom button. She is as funny in person as she is in her books and on her blog. I was really looking forward to meeting her, but the event ran late and our respective muggles were waiting for us to have dinner at Long Tan. Hunger in the early months of pregnancy is a blessed thing and I was starving. The line to meet Stephanie was long, and I wasn't pregnant enough to bust to the front of the line. Phooey.
But alas! I arrive at the Knit-Out today and there is Stephanie at the author's table and the line is SHORT. I was pleased as punch to rattle on about my glee at knitting socks for the first time for the Knitting Olympics (she even checked them out), incubating a future knitter and told her about Project Knitaway. Cuz hey, knitting can be considered a sport!
I even got a sock picture! Yes, it's these sort of moments that make my little world go 'round. (I was ready to knock the teeth out of the woman who interrupted my moment so she could oggle over Stephanie and in the process shout in my ear to prove that she was really down with her. It's my turn to oggle, lady! Get in line.) But thank you to the other woman who offered to take this picture for me. You are a kindred spirit, maybe because we share the same name?
Later I met up with my Sit n' Knit buddies to knit in the great outdoors and enjoy the day. It was great to see my blogging buddies, Hila, Necia, Tawana & Jen/Julian. Plus I met many of our new members and overall, had a great afternoon.
Good times, good times.
