shocking the muggles
NYC was a blast! i got to go to a Letterman Show taping (Jack Black was on), enjoyed a day at the Natural History Museum, and of course, the shock the muggles part was sah-weeeet!
it was awesome seeing all the knitters gathered together. the feeling of "fitting in" was incredible! a woman came up to me and said "oh i love your sock, is that monkey?"
this is how knitters greet. they touch the other knitter's knitting. i LOVE this. oh yes, i'm totally wearing the hoodie! and look, it's the yarn harlot!
figures, i have a cheezy michelin man face. i was more star struck then i've ever been. ever. i mean, she's the yarn harlot! after the crowd faded away a little more my mom took some more hoodie pictures...
and look at all the knitters...
the yarn harlot was amazing. she was funny and honest and completely entertaining. each person was given needles and yarn to knit a square for "warm-up America" and everyone worked on their square during her speech. i had such a wonderful time.
the harlot wore her amazing bohus sweater (which she took off and threw on the ground and the crowd of knitters yelled at her to fold it neatly, silly knitters)
(super blurry, but you get the idea, right?)
that trip is bound to stay on my favorite memories list forever!
