A really good day!

Yesterday, Jolene, Jody, Erin, Baby Joe(oddly, he doesn't have a blog yet!), half the eastern seaboard and I descended on Annapolis, MD to see the one and only Yarn Harlot.
(I know she looks like she is reciting the Girl Scout Pledge, but she's actually talking about her three children!)

Jody and I arrived at 3:30, and happily scored seats in the second row. I'd like to mention that the people in the front row had arrived at 9 a.m. Seriously devoted people! This is the second time I've had the pleasure of seeing Stephanie in person. Now of course, the highlight is Stephanie herself. She's very entertaining and so funny she makes your sides hurt from laughing. But I have to say, I so enjoy the entire atmosphere that goes along with it. It's like a big party. Everyone is happy, everyone is knitting, and everyone is just delighted to be there. So, thank you Stephanie, Borders, all my knit pals and all you hundreds of knitters that were there last night for such a great evening!

Joe was hiding from the camera in this picture, but there is an awesome picture of Jolene and Joe on Stephanie's site. Check it out! And if you feel like playing "where's waldo?" you might be able to find me in the group picture right above Jolene and Joe!

Jody and Erin. FRIENDS!
