Famous knitters should come to Oklahoma more often.
If you ever have a chance to see Stephanie on her book tour, you should go. It was really great to sit in a room full of knitters, meet some fellow bloggers (Hi Sue and Emma!), see what everybody is working on, and listen to Stephanie talk shop for a couple hours. And also, she's just hilarious.
The Scarf That Must Not Be Named made a rare public appearance to see the Harlot, and actually received lots of compliments, which made him feel much less self-conscious about his wonky stitches and issues with gauge. One young girl even requested his picture! He also enjoyed mingling with Rosemary's Gryffindor scarf at the book signing. (And if Rosemary finishes her scarf before me while simultaneously knitting a sweater, a shawl, socks, and God knows what else....I, um, won't be surprised).
I had a great evening. Thank you, Stephanie, and thank you to Gourmet Yarn and the OKC Knitter's Guild. And lookee here! The Yarn Harlot is not nearly as intimidating as Ethan Hawke, famous knitter though she may be. I have the autograph to prove it. :)
Glad you had such a good time. And an autograph? From the Harlot? Score!
Your pictures are wonderful!!! Mine suck out loud...!
I'm thinking of starting Icarus too.... but I'm working up to it...slowly.
