Knotty Knitter Road Trip To See The Yarn Harlot In L.A.;)

Diane had reserved 4 spots for the event and so Diane ,Jo, Carol, and I went to see the Yarn Harlot Speak at the Los Angeles Library Ellen Bloom Introduced her. The theme of her talk was all about representing the culture of knitters and all the embarrassments and terminal stereotypes that still haunt it
The Yarn Harlot has described the 'group' called CHOKE (Cultural humiliation of knitters everywhere)
. She signed books afterwards we were among the first 12 people to show up so we got front row seats for the event pretty sweet as there were 2 lines all the way out and down the halls both directions.Stephanie Mcphee is delightfully witty and we all knit as we listened to her speak.I was knitting on Lizets socks and Jo was working up something she hadnt decided what it would be yet and Diane and Carol were working on i-cord for felted bags Diane brought a hat she knitted to donate to charity as they were collected them at the event.I got to ask the yarn harlot questions which were did she cloth diaper her children and did she knit soakers for them to wear the answer was yes pretty kewl;)I told Lizet her socks would get to go on the adventure and I would knit on them and I got a picture taken with Stephanie where she held lizets socks so they are extra special socks Yarn Harlot
