Here she is the woman of the hour, the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl McPhee. She's Canadian y'know. Huzzah!
WE witness the ubiquitous sock and crowd picture taking.
I had to wear a sweater that I made, of course. Before I left the house I asked Dave if he thought I looked like someone "Desperate to be Noticed"?
No more than usual...You can't see my coordinating pink and turquoise sox and pink sandles. Too too?
um. These creeped into my bag. I am not gonna dye black yarn. You know I was right to buy these. They were 30% off. And Merino Superwash for heaven's sake!
And, OK these are unnecessary. But they were so lonely and pale and needing overdyeing so badly. And also on sale. I didn't realize until this morning that they are two different weights.
Sometimes I knit something that has no relationship to anything in my wardrobe. This lovely Fleece Artist Boucle Shawl that I knit in Maine earlier this year was just such an orphan. Yesterday I resolved that problem with a pair of velveteen jeans from our dear TJMaxx. Take note of the red sticker on the tag... you know it was a bargain.
Emily and I talked Knitting all the way home and it was a great great day for us both.
