Weekend Activities

The only thing worth blogging about is meeting the Stephanie aka Yarn Harlot on Saturday at her book signing in Doylestown. This was the second time meeting her, but the first time that I heard her give a talk. Last year I met her at MSW festival, where she met everyone on the grass and was less formal. This time however she told us about her adventures since she has become a world famous author (my words - she maintains she is a normal person).
In true knitterly fashion, there was several people knitting on projects in the bookstore (including me), and there was several different techniques in progress. In knitting socks, there was magic loop, 2 circs and dpns. Two people were knitting Conway from Knitting on the Road, using different techniques it was great. I know you both have blogs and I forgot to write the blog names down. So if you are reading this - and please let me know in the comments.
I use to live much closer to Doylestown, but I never went - I didn't know it had such a great downtown. I use to go to Peddlers Village (about 10 min away) all the time, but never made it to Doylestown. If you are in the Bucks County area - visit this town. It is worth it. As much as I am extolling the virtues of Doylestown, I didnt' walk around much. It was raining/sleeting the entire time I was there. But from what I did explore (from the parking lot, bookstore, yarnstore). It is an enjoyable town.

Samus - seamed the sleeves, and put one half in to the sweater (basted and partly seamed). Worked some more on the applied I-cord.

Broken rib socks - I really need to photograph these. I started the gusset increases - and for my notes later - at 6" from the toe. I realized after I got home on Saturday from the bookstore that I lost a needle. I think when I put the knitting back in my bag to get the books out to be signed. With the price of gas and time, I don't think it is worth driving back to pick it up.

I'm one of the Conwy knitters (Lorna's Laces on Magic Loop), and Liz, of Crossroad Knits is the other (Koigu on DPNs). Liz has a photo of the "cousins". It was great meeting you, too--best of luck with the move.

I agree that it was lovely to meet you. Hope all goes well -- we'll be back here to see how it's all going, of course.
