The Yarn Harlot owns my building.

I met the Yarn Harlot last night at her appearance at the World Forestry Center, sponsored by Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Tina et al. did a wonderful job, booking a venue large enough to hold us all, and featured a special sock yarn colorway just for the event. It was such a great evening that I didn't even miss the cookies and coffee. (Just a wee hint for next time.)

Here is proof positive that I did indeed meet Stephanie, who was gracious despite being mobbed by lots of people, something that freaks her out. You'll have to take my word for it, though, that I was wearing makeup and a clean shirt.

Hi-jinks abounded with the PDX KnitBloggers. There will be lots more pics from them, as I didn't have the presence of mind to photograph such moments as Stephanie sniffing the yarn I gave her (yes, she did, and she said it smelled good. I try to leave in a little of the sheepy-ness) and our own Duffy serenading Stephanie with her rendition of "Traveling Sock" sung to the tune of "Little Deuce Coupe". That stood the place on its ear.

My mates Kathleen and Cindy.

There were some 400+ knitters in attendance, one of them being MonicaPDX.

And those who couldn't make it were not forgotten. Here is Judy, the inventor of Judy's Magic Cast-on, brought along by the PDXYarnHo.

Hillary was not there, at least as far as I know, and has nothing to do with this post.

Since I got nothing else, here are some cute animal pictures.

You have doxies? So cute.

Glad you had a good time at the event.
I was there after all! How odd to be in two places at the same time. ;-)

Now if I can just find a video of Duffy singing!
well now, that is just a post full of cute if I have ever seen one
Aaaaaaw I dated a guy who used to call them Datsuns kinda like the car I love me some wiener doggies!
Also I'm on a yarn diet but I've decided that I can purchase some of your yarny crack when I finish the last stunning skein I purchased.
Who knew I had anything in common with Steph? I sniff yarn too, except I have less than innocent pleasure seeking motives.
Sniffing for the skanky skein.

Glad you had a great time.
Rush is two weeks away!
Awww your animals are the cutest!! I especially love the "eff you!" expression on the kitteh! Wish I could have gone with you, it sounds like it was a blast!
