my day with a harlot

after spending a whole day with the yarn harlot, i realized how lucky i was to get to meet some great women, see some great yarn shops, and of course, touch ALOT of great yarn. and of course, bloggers blogging bloggers...

i finally got to meet Rachel , another object of my blogging desires. and of course was driven around by the slickest of them all - candi jensen.

we almost had the harlot crocheting by the end of the day, i swear. of course, it was so much fun and i laughed and laughed and laughed. i thank stephanie for teaching me how to cable, giving some good sock advice (yes, i am trying my first pair - haven't hit the heel yet, ugh), and showing me that women can continue to prosper with creativity, energy, knitting needles and a great sense of humor. i thank candi for showing me all the wonderful possibilities of crochet, how great a color brown really is, and teaching me that no matter what comes you way in life - you can overcome anything and find happiness.
my first sock...such little needles...

we had a great time - and the bay area's knitters all came together at STASH - a wonderful shop in berkeley full of really great gals. i will be sure to go back and am thinking about hitting up the wednesday night knit-a-long. here are a few pics of the scene.

and of course, spending that much time around yarn, i couldn't resist when i saw some of this lovely kid merino...i am thinking big scarf/shawl with it. will let you know...

all in all a great day. i finally got on the train and started knitting with my new sock yarn...and missed my stop. and kept knitting. and then missed the next stop. ah well, the sock looks good. thanks for the fun day ladies!
