This past week was definitely a busy one...in mostly good ways.
Of course there is always school but luckily Wednesday morning I got a text from Shameka
asking if I was going to go see The Yarn Harlot
. I hadn't even heard about it. Class ended at 6pm and the event started at 7 so I could make it.
That's a pic of the crowd trying to get free buttons. Knitters and their buttons......
The Harlot and her sock. I didn't stay for the book signing but I did get a chance to ask if she was going to do a Knitting Olympics this year. She promptly replied no but said she'd do it in 2010 for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
This is a pic of the top that I started while I was standing in the crowd. It's always good to travel with knitting. Even though I didn't plan on going, I was fortunately prepared for the occassion.
Thursday I had a final. Every time I say that people say "Isn't it a little early for finals?". Well, we have our finals then we work on our term garments. This one was for draping. Given a picture of a jacket, your muslin, and a dressform, you have 2.5 hrs to make half the jacket. Fun times I tell ya.
Wisely, I had a strategic plan for decompressing afterwords. I treated myself to dinner and a little Pinkberry
. I guess they only have stores in LA and NYC so I apologize for those that don't have it when I say that the stuff is magical. Down right magical.
Then I head off to meet Shameka at a after-work party. I stayed there for a bit and then headed to another bar to see an old high school friend that dj's there. His friend happened to take some pictures of me as I was looking at some folks at the other end of the bar. Despite the somber look, I was actually enjoying myself.
Though it may not be clear, I'm wearing my Billie Jacket in the picture.
Friday, I met up with Shameka again to go to The Point
for some knit time. I actually saw Carrie
there eventhough she didn't see me. I was at a back table and I didn't see her until she was on her way out.
We wrapped up the night with some Thai and a little Pinkberry. I just couldn't resist.
