Yarn Harlot at Hilan theater

We had a great time last night at the Yarn Harlot program. Lots of food and laughing involved. I forgot to take my camera, damn, but there were a lot of other people snapping pics left and right. I don't think Virginia Highlands was quite ready to be taken over by "the knitters". I didn't get home until 11:15. While we were standing in line at Knitch for the second book signing, we kept seeing groups of people go in and hardly anyone coming out... could it be... yarn is people! People go in, yarn comes out... (vague and blatant reference to Soylent Green)
Knitch did a great job handling the crowds. Thanks to Kim and the whole group at Knitch for a wonderful evening. They had actually saved the front row seats for the AKG board members, which was a great surprise, but we decided we would rather sit back a little ways and with our groups of friends. I never was one of those kids that ran for the front row in the theater anyway, I always wanted the center middle so I could see the whole screen/stage.
I worked on a hat with Noro Kureyon during the program for the Knitters Without Borders hat drive. I haven't taken any pictures yet, but I'll post them when I do.
My butt is dragging a little today... but it was worth it! :)


  1. I didn't get home until after 1230 last night and had to get up at 6 to get my son to school. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to have to drink coffee for 2 days just to catch up.. but it was SO worth it!
    (and I snorted at the soylent green/yarn reference)

  2. Such a great time yesterday, but today I was trying not to fall asleep and go head first into the dye vat!

  3. It was great seeing you there! Go to my blog and see your beer-induced picture! Heh.

  4. Thanks for braving the crowds Doug! Glad you enjoyed the harlot!

  5. I know why you didn't take pictures. No incriminating evidence... ;-) I LOVE THE HAT - can you please write down your crown decreases? It looks awesome!!! See you tomorrow at the man knitting group?
