The Yarn Harlot Rocks!

Today was the day! The Yarn Harlot came to Los Angeles and spoke at the LA Central Library, Downtown. I was lucky enough to be asked to introduce her, so I got to meet and speak with Stephanie before all my fellow knitsters! It was awesome. Stephanie Pearl McPhee is a terrific writer and public speaker. She related some hilarious knit-related stories for over an hour today. Everyone truly enjoyed her "performance." I presented Stephanie with my California dishcloth and she graciously posed for a photo.

Many of L.A.'s knitters and crocheters were present....thanks to everyone for coming.....thanks to Jeff and Audrey for inviting me to speak.....and thanks to the Library Foundation of Los Angeles for putting on an awesome lecture!

w00t! What a fun day! It had to have been incredibly extra fun to get to spend some time with Stephanie off-stage. It is wonderful how patient and gracious she is, even after spending so much time speaking and signing - she was 'on' with us for nearly 3 hours straight.
