I got to spend the other night knitting and chatting with the woman attached to these famous feet. Perhaps you’ve heard of her?
We got along like old friends, picking up where we left off the first/last/only time we met for 20 minutes or so back in December chez Knitty Gritty. I’d hang out with this lady whenever given the chance. I’ve always wanted to go to Toronto. She’s a hoot, a holler and a handbag all in one!
It was my first time to visit my new favorite South Bay LYS, Purlescence. I’d met co-owner Nathania at Sock Camp back in April. Like her, her partners in crime all happen to be published on Knitty, Sandi (of Spanish Dancer fame) and Chloe Sparkle (of Twinkle Toes infamy, no relation to Janie Sparkles). The welcomed me warmly, with open arms, and sent me home with a couple hundred yards of Colinette Jitterbug and Amy‘s book.
In addition to seeing Nathania, it was a reunion for one of my mom’s and my super-duper dinner dates from camp, Debbie! I hope it’s not another 3+ months before the next time we hang out. (It shouldn’t be. She’s going to be up in the city next week for an ASL interpreter’s conference.)
Now if only every weekend started out with this kind of laughter and late night-knitting with the girls and (lest we not forget) some handsome fellows (whose blogs I do not know)!
