What a great weekend!
Friday night the Yarn Harlot visited the Tattered Cover in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. More than 200 knitters were there to greet her. I've never seen anything like it before. And I got a good giggle from seeing non-knitters enter unwittingly into the store and encounter knitters everywhere chatting, laughing, knitting and wearing the most beautiful handcrafted designs. It was so much fun and I met some lovely new people. I hadn't heard Stephanie speak before, or read much of her material, but now know what I'm missing out on... and will be correcting the errors of my ways immediately ;)
Stephanie was kind enough to then sign the books that the 200+ had purchased, chat, smile, pose for a picture and charm each and every one of us! What a wonderful, and hysterically funny, lady.
Saturday I visited the Habu Trunk Sale at a Knitted Peace. Oh how I love Habu! And to be able to try on a bunch of the sweaters was such a treat. I fell in love with one of the designs -- a simple wool cardigan that has a couple of coloured threads running through. I could have easily bought a closet full of kits... but I've been on quite the yarn shopping spree as of late and so I decided that one was probably plenty. Well one and a skein of yummy Red Rocks sock yarn. ;)
And then today rounded out the weekend with a trip to the Ball Park -- it was opening weekend for the Rockies. And despite the disappointing score, it was a beautiful day!
Now if only I could take a day, or two, to put my feet up before the impending work week kicks off.
