Happy Birthday Laurie!!!

Yesterday was Crazy Aunt Purl's birthday! We know her as Laurie. Tonight at the WeHo SnB we are having one huge celebration for Auntie's b-day. In fact, we've all flipped our wig for Crazy Aunt Purl....it's Wig Night at the SnB. Expect a crowd, expect wild wig-hats, expect cake.
Laurie is a revelation to us all. My friend and fellow-knitster, Audrey brought Laurie's blog to my attention. Audrey is always surfing for cool sites. She is L.A.'s high priestess of surfdom. Well, we started reading Laurie's blog and fell in love. We shared her blog with all of our friends. We found out that Laurie was a knitter. We decided to invite her to come to our WeHo SnB one night. We could tell from her blog that she was kinda' hermit-like and might need some coaxing to come on over and join us at the Original Farmers Market.
Finally, in May of 2005 she brought her posse with her and showed up at our Stitch n' Bitch. She was an instant hit with everyone. She's bright, she's funny, she's cute, she's southern, she's insightful, she has endeared herself to everyone.
I can't wait to see you tonight, Laurie Dear and wish you Happy Birthday in person!!!

Ellen, I love you! If it weren't for you, I'd never have met so many people, maybe never left my house, certainly never had the guts to show up at snb! Thank you, always.

p.s. Happy pre-birthday to you!!
