My fun filled knitting weekend

Friday night I went to the Point, and I saw this lovely lady again:

Saturday night, I went to the Barnes & Noble in Park Slope and I met this wonderful lady who agreed to pose with my latest finished object (off the needles literally 5 minutes beforehand):

A close up of the stitch pattern:

This morning, I headed back to the Point for their Gold Club champagne breakfast. I'm not telling you how much I had to spend to be in their gold club, just know it was a lot. From there I headed to Union Square to the Knit Out, where I got to snap this picture:

I also got to meet a bunch of other coffeeshop folk, which is always a pleasure.

And yarn pr0n Friday, even though it's not Friday:
Kid mohair/merino singles, roughly 270 yards of singles

New Zealand wool, roughly 190 yards plied

Why does my triplet have so much fun and such pretty yarn? What about me?!


Pam said...

Awesome yarn pr0n! It looks like you had a good time with the ladies, and I'm sure whatever you spent on the gold club, it was worth it.

Bezzie said...

Wow! Impressive--Amy and Stephanie and gorgeous yarn? Seriously, does it get any better???

Jo said...

Ooh... I love the reds in the NZ wool... very pretty.


Wow! What a great post! And those socks are simply amazing.

You're making me so jealous with all the pics I've seen on Amy's blog and the 12-steppers and whatnot. Gah!

Beautimous yarn pr0n.

Definately better than Taste of New Paltz!

Sarah said...

Nice single!

I LOVE those colors, *drool*

Your spinning is getting nice! Congrats!

And I'm so jealous, that not only did you get to hang out with the knitties, but you met Amy, and Stephanie!

Very cool.

Sarah said...

OOOOOH! Is that Lusty Lady I spy? She looks fantastic! You are becoming quite the spinner, young lady!

Glad you had such a great time with the Harlot and Amy! I saw a pic of you up at the Harlot's blog as a matter of fact :) I think I actually shouted out loud, "HEY! That's Karen! I know her!!!" Hee.
