No Harlot For You. . . .

Well, tonight was supposed to be Yarn Harlot night. Sadly, it was not. Stephanie got stuck in Canada, and there was much raining in Chicago and it was just a bad scene. Anyway, there was much knitting and fun had, even without the Yarn Harlot. It all started when I was the first one to the venue, and I decided to Kinnear myself: I realize I look kind of crabby in the above picture, but I was trying to catch exactly what I would look like had I been Kinneared by someone else. Obviously, sitting there alone knitting didn't make me look weird enough. I had to bust out the camera and take pictures of myself knitting by myself. I swear, you should be in my head sometimes.

Anyway, I did knit quite a lot of sock:
This is my own yarn in the Sunset (I think) colorway. I dyed this awhile ago and put one in my shop, kept one for myself. I am so glad that I kept it for myself. It's lovely.

Well, that's it. Tonight I will spend the rest of my evening knitting above sock while watching lots of Friends reruns. A pretty good end to a pretty good night.

Happy Knitting!

  1. I'm sorry you missed the Harlot. I know she's upset about the whole thing. Still, I'm glad you all made the best of the rainy evening to have a knit night.

  2. Sock knitting with Friends reruns is always a fun time in my book. It is so unfortunate about the weather messing up the YH's flights! I hope she gets back to see you all in Chicago.

  3. I love the colors in that sock. So sorry you missed seeing the Yarn Harlot! Maybe she'll make an appearance sometime soon. (PS - I love Friends too - we have the entire DVD collection!)

  6. I just Stumbled Upon your site and have to tell you that you've inspired me to learn how to knit! I have a friend who is patient and kind enough to teach me so I'll be learning next week. I love your socks and hope to be as good as you someday with a drawer full of lovely striped socks. Thanks for sharing you beautiful work.

  7. I'm so sorry you missed the Harlot! I like your new sock though. After taking a class from Wendy (WendyKnits) on Saturday I think I'm finally ready to give toe-ups a try. Do you like toe up better?
