The Harlot brought the cold

So today was a bit chilly, then rainy and finally snowy. Yes that silly Canadian bought the cold with her. But that's ok because that means the Sock Yarn Sweeter was worth it.

Here is miss Purple Girl giving our Harlot some local beer. She wanted to get some Surly but didn't find a liquor store that had it. Though i wish i had known because one of the emps has a sister who is a brewer for them. Ah well next time.

Here is Harlot, your Iki and the traveling sock. She liked the sweeter and is thinking of making one herself. I got a lot of people saying nice things about it. It made me blush. I'm really not good at compliments, but I am learning to say "Thank you" and not be little the comment.

As we waited for Mammagrouch to get her turn we showed off our hand knit socks with a Yarnery emp. She was pretty nice to chat with.

Here is Mammagrouch and the Harlot. Both with socks and only one with a baby belly. I promise later i will turn the picture right side up, i'm just being lazy right now. Or if you have a laptop, just give her a turn and you can make out the fabulousness. Oh, and We have a new name for the Twerp, maybe, Penny. I like it. Maybe if Mammagrouch doesn't use it I will.... errr some day.... for a cat.... or maybe a baby.... anyways.

I won some (was handed as they had lots of door prizes) Malabrigo chunky yarn. It's pretty greens and blues and yellows. I also found the 2 library books that i just turned back in yesterday and thought "Shop Local" and got them today too.

All in all a good day.
if you don't count my oil light coming on.
I'm sure it's fine.

Oh, here are some of the funniness from the event. Singing songs to the Harlot

Ooh, you won Malabrigo?! I managed to win a nifty Rowan book, but no yarn... guess I'll have to shop for that myself... oh, shucks...

All in all, a very fun evening- I'm so glad I made it down.

happy knitting-
