Yarn Harlot!

I haven't had a post in a while about Knitting.

One of my favorite blogs to read is Yarn Harlot's. The link is in the sidebar.

Our Odd Tuesday group, well the main 4 of us, went on a road trip to the Indy area yesterday to go to the Yarn Harlot 2008 Book Tour. What FUN! Lots of knitters.

It was Exhausting though and I did get a migraine about half way through the evening.

It was truely an exciting time. I got to hold "the sock" for the group photo! Don't we all look totally wiped out? I'm second from the left and was so gone I don't believe that I even realized that Stephanie was even next to me. A Migraine will do that to you.
I had the Yarn Harlot sign the book to my daughter Mariah, because it was a school night and Mariah couldn't participate in this event. She was quite pleased and took the book to school today before I even had time to browse through it.
The drive up was productive. We all brainstormed,, talked, and I knit a short row heel and part of the foot of a sock. I'll take pictures of it later.
Have you ever knit something and later when you wear the item or pick it up you know what you were doing while you knit on it? Well, this pair of socks will always remind me of Jordan because she gave me the yarn as a birthday present, Claudia( )because I used her picot edgeing and the Yarn Harlot trip. That makes me happy.
