Meeting the Yarn Harlot in Charlotte

Originally uploaded by applekidnc

OK, so its been a while, since I have posted, one special sock down, one more to go.

Tuesday after work, I went up to Boarders to meet up with my Knitting Divas and we met the Yarn Harlot! (aka Stephanie Perl-McPhee) Check out her site at, Stephanie is Fabulous! I even got a small mention on her website, which I will ever be so grateful for!

If you want a good little book to read, I definitely recommend her new one.

Off to sleep now...

More hats on the way....

Just a weird ramble here.... I spent most of the day getting my PB 15" for sale and setting up the new computer. Now I am on a Intel Mac! Who Hooo!! I have made one more Helping Hat and started on another. Last night I went out with a sweet guy named Scott. We had a great time hoping the light rail to downtown and eating at Jolina on the Green. Awesome food!
From there we went to the McColl Center for Visual Art to see the artists in residence exhibits. Jan's space was awesome, filled with quilts and knitted or crocheted pieces of work.

Speaking of work... off to the Apple Store...

Love to all

I whipped up the Helping Hat pattern over the weekend and wore it to work today. I can not tell you how many people have commented on this hat. I am going to buy more of this yarn and knit up some for gifts and charity work.

AHHHHHH!!!!! Ok, now I feel better... I wish! This week has been perfect right up until Thursday when I thought I was having just a bad allergy day. Then Friday morning, I could not even move! So I spent most of my fabu 30th birthday weekend in bed! I did make it to my Friday night crafty night birthday at Cristi's and I got some awesome gifts! Thanks to everyone for the b-day gifts. I will treasure for a long time! Then I went back to bed and barely got out of it on Sat. I did make it to my own b-day dinner at Mama Ricotta's and we had 20 people there! We had a good dinner, but no Petra's that night... I stayed in bed again on Sunday and managed to finish this little pouch for Joyce's dad to keep his tissues in.

A week of de-clutter-ing and knitting!

Tis my week of vacation and I am doing nothing but spring cleaning and knitting. Pics to come, as I decide on what to do with my room. Sock #2 was finished and I ripped out sock #1 back to the toe decreases to add a little more room.

Hopefully will be done tonight!

Yes, I am a Trekkie...

Ok just to show how much of a nerd I really am, I checked out the Star Trek website and discovered a lovely surprise. Here is the new teaser for the Star Trek movie coming in May of 2009.
