It goes without saying the Stephanie was a great speaker and kept us hanging on our more. At the end of the evening, she did the signing thing. I had my own copy of Yarn Harlot and I bought At Knit's End; she of course signed both. (I know that woman had to have a hand cramp at the end of the night. Or, now that I think about it, perhaps all that knitting has built up tolerance for repetitive hand motion?)
Jane (or is it Jayne) of Knitch, won one of the door prizes, which was some coveted Knitch specialty blend coffee. That is until everyone discovered that it was decaf. Then it was all "why bother?" Although everyone else saw a very quiet version of myself, I am normally in no need for caffeine as I talk way too much. (I blame the speechlessness on the fact that I am slowly, albeit unwillingly, turning into a country bumpkin.) Decaf is my friend. Besides, I mainly consume coffee for the milk and sugar I can add to it.
Those of you who are into sustainable agriculture or just keeping it "local" will love what the back of the package reads:
So all and all, the evening was a huge success and I adored going. I can't wait to meet up with everyone again for SAFF in October!
