The Yarn Harlot and a Pink Wrap

Friday evening, Stephanie AKA The Yarn Harlot was at a bookstore in Plano and I got to go hear her!  She's just as funny in person as she is on her blog.  In addition to meeting the Yarn Harlot, I also got to meet some of the knitters in the DFW metroplex (and some from outside the metroplex) that I had only previously met on Ravelry.  It was great to put some faces to names and everyone was really nice.  I wore Flamenco and Flamenco got a bit of attention too.  I'm really glad I was able to go.

I've also been knitting away on the Rosebud Pink Wrap and I now have 50 inches along the long side.  The long side is the lower edge in the picture and I know it doesn't look like 50 inches, but it is when you smooth it out like it will be once it's off the needles.  This means I only have 22 more inches to go before I work decreases at the front of every row and finish the whole thing off.  It's really moving along much faster than I thought it would.

I live in Plano and I couldn't make it because my car decided to die on me last week. :(

I'm sorry I missed it.

I was hoping that the Yarn Harlot would post pictures of you!!!! Your wrap is gorgeous!!!!! You have had a very positive influence on me!!! The first lace that I knitted was Scheherazade. I knitted it twice. Followed by Swan Lake - which I knitted twice. I think the element that I value the most is this...your passion for beauty and willingness to share that beauty...as well as your grace in difficult circumstances. I teach information technology at a university and the whole mystery stole experience is an example of how technology can support a passion. I shared the mystery stole experience with my students so that they could see one real life example of how one person - not a corporation with $$$- could successfully deliver a cutting edge, creative experience globally. They appreciated all aspects. Melanie, thank you!!! Wishing you many blessings!
