My Brush with Knitting Celebrity Greatness!
Oh, and some Canadian woman who calls herself the Yarn Harlot wanted to be in the photo too. Poor thing, no one was giving her any attention so we let her pose with us.
(I wait for hours to get my big photo moment and my clapotis ends up all bunched up on my shoulder, sigh)
So, I met up with Ceallach today and we drove to over Los Altos where over 300 knitters showed up at Full Thread Ahead to see the Yarn Harlot herself, the uber-fabulous Stephanie Pearl-McPhee.
After checking in, we walked around the shops and, since knitters can't live on yarn alone (shocking, I know), Ceallach treated me to a refreshing margarita and appetizer platter at a local Mexican place. We returned to the shop and found some seats.
As expected, Stephanie was a hilarious and very entertaining speaker.
And, as you all know, you can't go to a yarn event and come home empty handed--Los Altos has another yarn shop, Uncommon Threads where I scored some Koigu because, as I said to Ceallach, this colorway makes me happy. And she understood, because she found some happy Koigu too.
