Seeing the great Yarn Harlot
Saturday, I went to the Maker Faire to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, the Yarn Harlot, speak. The first shot is her--there were many people knitting in the audience, including me. I bought her new book, Things I Learned from Knitting whether I wanted to or not, but did not get it autographed. Afterwards, I wandered around and saw many interesting things--a giant cupcake vehicle, a giant woman sculpture, and many crafts--I really liked the crochet display that someone had attached to a post, showing the different shapes that could be made. I was sorely tempted by some solar dyed yarn, but bought only one indie-dyed hank from Red Sheep. That is a new record for number of links in one of my blog posts! I also met a friend, whose blog is linked on my blog already, Debra Roby, we sat and chatted for a long time.
