It's Only Monday?

My heart is a thumping and I’m super nervous? Why you ask. I’m crushing on Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Last year, I had just gotten to know her blog and had whipped thru her book right before book signing. I went and was star struck by how well she could see into my soul. She said everything that I could not and now this amazing woman was sitting right in front me and what did I say? Was I prepared? Hell-No!!! AHHHHH! I told her she was an amazing writer and knitter. That was it. I wanted to run and hide. I don’t do well in situations like that, and most people who know me, know I’m quite and have to think thru what I want to say and how I want to say it. I’m not sure, but I believe most people to be very witty and able to work a the fly. That isn’t me. So, I’m writing a speech. Yes, I’m a dork, but if I want to say all I can tomorrow, I have to...other wise I’d more then likely, say “your cool” and that would be it. Go ahead and laugh...I know I am.

I have gifts to bring and hopefully she will be awed by them. I know the Froebe Fiber clan will not be able to attend and so I will bring stuff;) I too have something for the Harlot and I truly hope she likes...I’ll post more about that tomorrow as I’m hoping (fingers-crossed) that the package comes soon. Otherwise this teaser is nothing but a very bad and late April Fools joke.

Oh, yeah...if your reading this please call: 630.574.2409 it’s the number to the Borders in Oak Brook. Ask to make reservations to the Harlot’s appearance on Tuesday. Lets freak out the muggles as much as possible;)

Alas, I gauged for the candy Trekking socks and I’m getting 10 stitches to the inch...ouch, I think I’ll just wait till the STR twisted rib socks are off the needles or is this reason enough to purchase two extra Addi Turbo size 1 circ’s? At 13 bucks a pop...maybe not;)

Current update on the Twisted Rib STR’s...

I’ve also made another yarn cake for the Hoodie...and what do I see in my inbox? Oh, yes a 40 % off coupon to Joann Fabric’s online store...maybe it’s time for the swift?

Hey, Knitterary? Did you get that photo thing to work yet???

Nope. Haven't figured it out. I'm still waiting for the food coma to wear off before I try to use my brain.

I'm going to try loading pictures into google's photo album thingie and see if that works. I don't know what else to do!

And, fwiw, I get a little starstruck around writers I admire, too.

I'm a little jealous. I have to work tonight, otherwise I'd be there, too. Have lots of fun listening to her and weirding out the non-knitters. :)

And your socks look great, btw. I bet people have aleady suggested it to you, but there's always KnitPicks Options if Addis are too expensive.
