Sponge

I have a headache. I think it's because I didn't have enough caffiene and I was a learning sponge all day. Soaking up the new job knowledge.

What I really wanted to talk about was what I did this past Saturday. Yes, I went to see the Yarn Harlot.

My knitting buddy and I went to Doylestown Bookstore in PA, grabbed a seat and were completely entertained and charmed by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. She speaks just as she writes. The yarns she spun (sorry, had to do it) were sweet and funny and appreciated by all, and there were some non knitting husbands in attendance. On top of it all she is very down to earth. It was a pleasure hearing her speak and meeting her.

If you look closely, you can see THE sweater. Stephanie's Olympic sweater. It is beautiful and it I have no idea how she knit it in 16 days. Truly amazing!

Because there has been no knitting content lately. Look! Socks I finished like 2 weeks ago! Please ignore the bad photo and very white winter legs which look really fat because they are leaning up against the couch.

And lastly - here is my little mini me. Huddled all meatloaf-like in my tote bag. Some times she cracks me up!

Oh how cool. I wish she'd tour closer to Charlotte. It's like she's afraid of going too far south. *sigh*

Those socks look really cool. I must ask the obligatory question - what yarn did you use?

Gorgeous yarn and such a sweet kitty. My heart goes out to you-- it only takes a minute and those little furballs are a part of our life. I have a kitty too. So I know how you feel. Just love him as much as you can while he's here.

New visitor to your blog, courtesy of the yarn harlot's blog link. Love your stash! You must be a wonderful person. Sorry about your kitten; I too have a sick cat, but it is due to old age; he is 17 +.
