It was amazing! I was awestruck by the theater filled to overflowing with something over 600 folks, all knitting. And we all were entertained by Ms. Pearl-McPhee (of course) and she inspired us to "come out" as knitters, and to love our stash, so here it is.
I own lots of yarn, known to us knitters as "stash".
I also own sheep, which I consider simply an extension of stash, known as "yarn on the hoof".
And I now own a signed copy of Stephanie's latest book:
And Allison and I even brought her a skein of our yarn to add to her stash. I couldn't tell if she was more impressed with the dedicated colorway, or the fact that we printed the label with the yardage in meters. (That should really be "meterage", shouldn't it?)
Now, if only sheep and chickens could read, they'd understand where Mommy was last night until VERY late....
