Here is a picture of the large crowd before the event. This is not even all the people that were there. Here is my sister pretending to be excited about being at a knitting event. She did not bring any knitting, but I had shoved some needles and some dishcloth cotton in my bag before we left because I didn't want her to feel left out. Note the garter stitch goodness. Someday, yes someday, I will make this girl a sock knitter.
After everyone went around and did a show and tell of their knitting (which was most excellent, by the way), the Yarn Harlot came out and took pictures of the crowd with the Travelling Sock: Got to love all the knitters/bloggers taking pictures of the Yarn Harlot taking pictures of them. After a very nice talk about knitting that had me laughing quite hard, it was time to wait in line to get our books signed. While in line, my Kool-Aid sock did a little perusing of the DVDs:
Then, I met her!
Oh yes, I touched the Travelling Sock, people. It was awesome. And, when my sister made mention of my blog, Stephanie asked what my blog was and when I told her she said she knew it. She's like, oh yeah, you leave comments on my blog. I have to say that may have made my week! :) My sister ended up having a lovely time, and while she did not quite understand my excitement (I think I caught an eye roll), she does accept it.
So, that's all. It's past my bedtime, and I am not even a little bit tired. I am totally on a Yarn Harlot high right now!
* Please Note: I did have other clothing on besides the handknit socks!
