Last week Thursday, we went to Represent at FIT, an event hosted by the Yarn Harlot. She was very funny in her presentation. The moment I found the funniest was when she first got on stage and said, “I’m sure you are all perfectly nice people individually, but altogether, you scare the crap out of me!!” :-)) She has a lot of balls, the little lady, to stand before such a MASSIVE crowd and chit chat with us. I dunno how she does it. I would be intimidated right off that stage. She talked about her different experiences as a knitter and a writer and told plenty of funny stories. OH, and her hair looked good. She worries about her hair in public a lot. HA!
Afterwards, Necia, Jeanine, Chante, Tawana, Sherrin, Marva and I (heretofor known as The Whatchamacallits – we were missing Bronxie who is also part of us and WE MISSED YOU BRONXIE!!! And, Happy Belated B-day to you!) went to eat at Dallas BBQ’s and had a GRAND ol’ time. Even if we DID have to gulp down alcoholic drinks and shovel the food into our mouth super fast because the New Jersey-ans had to rush to take scheduled buses. I wanted something to commemorate our event and since most of us were knitting socks, and there happened to be a bull (?) skeleton over our table….
Yep. Fun times, indeed!
At BBQ’s I showed the ladies an email on my PDA regarding the FANTABULOUS sale going on at Knit Happens. Their eyes popped out of their heads. I think I must’ve been one of the first 3 or 5 or 10 people to order because it was shipped out that day. I scored folks. BIG TIME.
Here I am Squeezing the Loot.
Here I am Petting the Loot.
Here I am Hugging the Loot
Lorna’s Laces galore, Cherry Tree Hill and Koigu.
Oh, and once that shipped, I couldn’t resist. I caved folks…yes, I sure as hell did. Who the HECK could resist that tremendous sale?? Well, Wendy told me she resisted but apparently she’s made of steel. :-)) I bought enough Debbie Bliss Baby Cash, Cathay and RYC Cashsoft for FOUR summer tops! WOO HOO!! I busted out of that Yarn Diet LOOOVELY! UGH! But, what can we do? We are only human right? And I HAVE been working diligently through my stash.
