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...


yay hoodie!

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!

omg - love your hoodie and so jealous of your trip! I would love to come to NY, but it's a bit far from Glasgow, Scotland.

I'm still working on CPH - the pick up stitches are beating me at the moment.

Cool pics!

Your CPH is beautiful! I really like the color. This is my first sweater and I'm a little nervous about the fit. How fun to meet the Yarn Harlot AND to wear your CPH in Central Park!

Wow, what a trip. I was there too and felt the love. I'm trying to embrace my inner knitter (so far I prefer crochet). Great job on you CPH!
