Yarn Harlot's Visit to Portland
Yesterday was the 'Yarn Harlot's' visit to Powell's book store in my home town of Portland, Oregon. My mom was kind enough to go for me with the hopes of getting my book signed. She said there was about 400 people there all with knitting of course. She said and I quote, "What a clever and talented woman, even though there were about a gazillion people, she was amazingly graceful under pressure. Not only did I enjoy the talk, I got to meet her. what a gracious woman." And guess what - she knew my blog!
To the right - My mom does not knit (but she DOES crochet, cook, craft,crossword puzzles,writes, needlepoint, bake, decorate,drive people insane, & adores her husband and children who can do no wrong - in her own words), but Stephanie felt it would give her her socks, because it would give her 'Street Cred' and Stephanie is holding the 'fetching' gloves that I knit for my mom.
