Now I bring you my incredibly artistic photos of my good buddy (or at least she was before this) Laurie. She was a great help at the event - as you can tell.
She is a hard worker. Making sure all the customers are ready for their books to be signed.
I know you love these pics L -- your welcome! :)
What a fun event - we think there were around 250 knitters that enjoyed themselves. Stephanie was a trooper and signed books and books and took pictures til just about 11pm.
This is a shot of Stephanie talking. Even my non knitting coworkers were laughing.
My son Joe made an appearance to get his picture with Stephanie and the infamous sock!
Here is a gal showing off her first socks! (CHECKOUT Laurie behind Steph in the black shirt blond hair in front of the railing -- I will throw in some more L pics later tomorrow -- she was in a ton of my photos!)
AND last but not least Me and the Yarn Harlot -- I was so excited for my sock picture!
What fun -- of course I knew that a store full of knitters would be a wonderful thing...now I think my coworkers agree!

Lots of things were started -- now to remain focused and finish a few more things!

When my husband and I were in NYC I just bought yarn there -- with no clue what it would become. It is sorta like buying a little knickknack to remind you of someplace you visited.
Now I just need to go work on my knitting!
Enjoy the view here on the blog!

I am free this morning and I am going to pick up that pink & green scarf and work just on it.
This is hard because I have a new project on the needles -- but I worked some on that yesterday so that should be enough for now. I need to get a project or 2 done this month because I have yet to finish one in April. The point of this blog is to keep me knitting and finishing knitted items.
Yesterday was nice I knitted with my friend Roxane -- i wish it could have been longer but work needed me.
Do you know that knitting is really a social thing? Or maybe I should say it is for me. There are only a few patterns that I have to do away from friends because they need my focused attention. But most of what I knit I can do with friends and keep the the conversation moving.
So I am off to focus....at least until the kids get home (it is an early release day -- why I have no idea).

And then at low tide she found this cool guy one day -- we so enjoyed the sea life. Even saw dolphins in the am.
Oh and here is a sample of one of the beach front homes I will buy when I win the Lotto!
AND yes I do know that I have not finished anything yet this month --I need to get cracking. I have too many things on needles and just need to focus!

Here I am with my youngest showing off our blue tongues. Yummy cold blue raspberry icees are fun!
Ahhh the beach at sunrise... this photo really makes me miss the beach -- that and the 50 degree temps here at home. Just being somewhere that looks so different from home is fun.
Fresh tasty seafood is another great thing about vacation. Joe even shared some of his crab claws with the rest of us.
I did knit some in the car. I got the front (or back - they are pretty much the same) completed on my sweater. I am about 2/3rds done on the pink and green scarf too. There was only minimal knitting on this trip. When I was back at the condo I was usually getting ready to sleep.
It was a calm and relaxing vacation where lots and lots of nothing to terribly important got done -- just what I needed.
Hope you all have a fun vacation like this sometime soon.

The days were so bright and light and calm.
And here are my toes enjoying our trip.
