Yarn Harlot

Yesterday my daughter and I went to see Stephanie Pearl-Mcfee, "The Yarn Harlot", author of "Meditations For Women Who Knit Too Much".

"Monkey" came along too!

Many of the assembled fans entertained themselves by knitting and chatting while they awaited for Stephanie's arrival.

Monkey was no exception. He is still getting the hang of this knitting thing, so some helping hands were needed.

At last the star of the show arrived. She was entertaining and witty, just like her blog.

When her talk was over, she sat down to sign books. LOTS of books....

for LOTS of people.

Unfortunately we didn't want to keep our non-knitting-enthused driver waiting, so we had to leave without a picture of us rubbing shoulders with Stephanie-The-Author.

Monkey couldn't resist a last minute mad dash to caress "The Sock".

Kris caught him red handed....

....and he reluctantly put the sock back.

We allowed him one last climb on the giant "bookbookbook" before we left.

Monkey is adorable and I laughed over those pictures of him...the commentary went perfectly with the pics Marlene. What a fun day you must of had and I loved the line about the non-knitting-enthused driver...I'll bet theres a lot of those around = ). The lady I met the other night made my hubby most welcome in her shop. She told him lots of men come along with their wives and she supplies tea, coffe and cookies for them. By the way, thanks for coming over to my blog and leaving me a comment!

Everyone DOES realize that Monkey is only a guest here, right? His "home" is actually on my daughter's blog at:
