Yarn Harlot liked my t-shirt

She said if I put them on ebay she would absolutely buy one. Thinks "I should put these t-shirts on etsy".

Anyway...

Yesterday really was brill. The organisation was excellent. Great stands and shopping. Fashion shows and catering. Places to sit. Charity projects. I'm very very happy. I caught up with loads of people I haven't seen for ages, met Gill from WoollyWorkshop and, most exciting, Stephanie Pearl McPhee was awesome AND she liked my t-shirt. It doesn't get much better than that.

I got some lovely things. Sock yarn x4:

Herdy t-shirt and notecards.

Denise organiser - this was my big buy. I told myself I'd wait til I got paid but then it was there and kind of wicked and so I just did it.

The buttons are ones I ordered from WoollyWorkshop for the bad cardi. I'm thinking the green leaf ones will be the best.

Lovely keyrings from the people who did the knitted gingerbread house.

And then there was this...

Yeeha! She was really lovely. And she had something real to say to everyone.

A great day.

Then I got back and last night and this morning I finished off Pooch's jumper. Ta da!

I am very pleased with it. All the details are on ravelry. Got the yarn at SkipNorth. It fits him nicely and the colours are perfect for him. Very happy with it!

A number of people asked me about the podcast yesterday, and have been messaging me about it on ravelry. So....I am going to do another one. I've got a day off in about a week's time so I'm going to plan it for then. It would be good to get back to them again.

I saw you but didn't like to rush across and say hallo - so I'm saying it now. Hallo!

Don't think I saw you there, but I was a bit mesmerised by all the yarn and people!

I saw the t-shirt, but I didn't realise it was you in it. Otherwise I'd have come over and talked to you.

Hello again!
I hope you do podcast again, as you sound warm and friendly and you put together a good show (and you make sure the sound quality is good).

Some of the one's I've been listening to recently are simply dreadful, too much umming, awful sound and more like a miserable therapy session. Your is soooo much better, and there aren't enough British 'casts out there.

Hope it goes well!
