Did You Hear??

Yarn Harlot will be coming to Halifax in August! Hee hee hee. I get to run away from home without the kids for one entire day. To be with my own kind. Yipee!! It's not like I idolize her. It's more than that. It's about going to see a regular woman, normal and perfectly down to earth (or at least so I gather) who made good in this big bad world. Knitting and being proud of it. At a time (FINALLY) when women (and men) knit in public and are not immediately led off in those nice white jackets that buckle in the back. I will stand in line to meet her. I may have been a knitter for many years, but Stephanie inspired me to try new techniques. To get out of my comfort zone. That can never be a bad thing.

It would appear that as of late, I've been all about jumping on the bandwagon. So it is with some trepidation that I confess to joining the Mystery Stole 3. Yesterday I finally bought some beads. I will be knitting with black New Zealand wool. It will be pretty. If I ever start.

She really is an inspiration. Even to knitters like me who will never match her knitterly talent! And the one time she comes to Maine...I miss it. Dang.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! And good luck on that shawl. I envy your ability to knit something like that.
