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???
