Are we dead yet?

It's zero hour at CERN today, and it looks like we're not dead. As a person with a physics degree I've been asked to explain what the deal is with the black holes and stuff. Frankly, I don't know. I did my degree 7 years ago. I just dunno. The point is though, that it's cool. And if they find the Higgs Boson that's good and if they don't there's a whole lot of PhDs to be funded. But more importantly, Google have a good animation for it.
I clicked on it, just for fun, and you know on the right of the screen, where they have the paid for advertising? Well, I saw this one:

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".

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…
