It’s like a mobius strip…

There is no happiness like getting a package in the mail :)

(except maybe holding a balloon)


Since it’s the end of SP4, my secret pal has finally revealed herself!!! HI SECRET PAL!!!!! The timing could NOT have been better with the book, because TODAY (techincally yesterday, but I haven’t gone to sleep yet!) I travelled down to Knit Happens* to meet…

STEPHANIE, a.k.a The Yarn Harlot!!!
on her YH’05 Knit’s End Tour – get the tour button here ;)

It’s sooo wierd meeting bloggers in person. Especially Knit Blog Royalty like Stephanie!! You feel like you know them, but you *really don’t*…AND YET YOU DO! It’s wierd. Chelsea and I both gave her little welcome-to-DC presents and both times, when she opened the cards and read them, she was like “OH! THAT’S who you are!!!!” hee!

Anyway, it was really super fabulous to finally meet her. She was just as cute and funny in person as she seems on her blog!!! She even dished a Yarn Harlot Blog SECRET! (I’m soo not telling!!!) Hopefully, I will get to say hi again when she comes back for MDS&W!!! Of course, to honor Ms. Harlot, we HAD to get her to take celeb pics with our socks-in-progress:

The Bittersweet Socklette’s brush with fame!
(since *my* blog entry is nearly identical to Chelsea’s, we thought we’d switch it up and have Stephanie pose facing the OTHER way with MY sock. We’re WILD like that!)

Speaking of The Festival, remember my Honeymoon cami that I was or was not going to wear?


Do you also remember how they say “…join, being careful not to twist…”?


Scratch the Cami.

With only one week left, I don’t know *what* I’m going to do. I’m all jealous because everyone *else* is going to have some pretty knitted thing to wear, but at the same time, I don’t think I have enough time to MAKE anything I’d wanna wear!!! :( saaaaad.

I do hope to come back to the cami eventually though. It’s a really pretty design :)


* The Knit Happens Online Store is OPEN!!!! WOOO!!!! GO KRISTINE!!!

Doesn’t she look cute with her prettypretty princess birthday balloon?

    A very fun Hump Day indeed!

    Argh! I missed you again! I had to leave at 5:30 pm for a stupid dinner with the husband’s associates. Sorry about the honeymoon cami – I’ve done that “twist the stitches” before. But they say that once you’ve done it once, you never do it again!

    Ah! Looks like fun! Can’t wait to meet her and you at the festival! We are so close now… just a few days away!!! :)

    I know first hand that my sis (vibegrrl) loves her packages in the mail. I used to send her some every once in a while. BALLOONS!!!?!! Who doesn’t like a balloon. One of the best presents I ever received was from my sis. A balloon. A huge one that said ”i have a balloon and you don’t” and it stayed up almost a year!! :) I just had to say that!!! LOL

  7. Vicki Says:

    Ah, the SP reveal. I really should mail that stuff out lol. At least you get to go, just enjoy yourself and don’t feel too bad about it :)

  8. Vicki Says:

    Oh, I have that piggy bookmark. It’s so cute! Sorry, I’m done now.

  9. Anne Marie Says:

    I don’t have a damn knitted thing to wear to S&W. I thought about setting up a drunken poker game where I could win something from a more talented knitter. Bring a bottle of whiskey and I’ll let you in on it!

    PS The Yarn Harlot Woo-Hoo! That’s supa-cool

    OMG! I am so jealous you got to meet the Yarn Harlot!!

    She is going to be in the Boston area tomorrow night and I hope I can make it there in time to see her! She is holding your sock! wee!

  11. frecklegirl Says:

    Me again!

    Poor cami is not so happy… You have time- you can pull something together! (honeymoon cami?)

  12. Jaimi Says:

    Good, I’m first with the news…the Harlot has a picture of you on her blog!!!!

  13. duff. Says:

    extremely unlikely i’ll be wearing anything knitted. it gets hot there.

  14. Silvia Says:

    I wouldn’t worry about the wearing of the knitted thing, just get the cute shirt…Plus style is all in the shoes anyway.

  15. Jenny Says:

    “be careful not to twist” – it’s really only when the pattern actually says that, rather than merely “join” that I fuck it up. invariably.

    BUT! The honeymoon cami is really fast and I believe you can do it. I’ll try to have mine done too. Since I ripped back like 6 inches a few nights ago, we’re both going to have to knit fast!
