Friends In High Places and May Day Sock Update

I R.E.A.L.L.Y. wanted to see the Yarn Harlot while she was in Atlanta this past weekend but I wasn't quick enough to get a ticket!!

My dear friends Bibby and Wendy however were able to get tickets and made the trip together!! I'm not sure which I was more envious of....their ride over there and back with all the great conversations that I am sure took place or actually seeing the Harlot in person!! LOL!!!


Both (being the wonderful enablers that they are)....offered to pick up something for me while at Knitch and I would have LOVED to have an autographed copy of the Harlot's new book but I didn't ask. I didn't know if there was a limit and didn't want to put my friends on the spot by asking.









WELL...........look what I Got!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :) (Cindy got one too)!!!!!!


























I was SOOOOO tickled!!!!!!!!!!



What a GREAT surprise it was to look at what I thought was Bibbys book only to open it and discover MY name!!!!



(Wendy gave Cindy her book at Knit Night)!

Thank you both SOOOOO much for thinking of us!!








One May Day Sock down,

Second sock hopefully will be finished by this weekend!!!!

I love the May sock! Going to see the Yarn Harlot in Atlanta would have been great but I had to settle for seeing her in Nashville (much much closer for me). I'm glad they brought you back a book!

I am ashamed to say I don't even know the Yarn Harlot! Now I'm going to have to look her up - and lucky you and Cindy for getting a signed book! WTG Bibby & Wendy!

the sock looks great. Darn, it did not occur to me to see if anyone would get a book signed for me! Probably because I didn't have a copy. Oh well, next time. Look how long it took me to get the other 4 signed. I have the memory of Stephanie asking, "Why is my name so long." LOL

I love your May Day sock, what is the yarn and colorway that you are using?
I'm also jealous of your signed book from the Yarn Harlot. You have some awesome friends that got you a signed copy of her book!

Knit Witch said...

Yay for the book! You missed a great time. Sorry you couldn't get a ticket!
