the harlot is coming!

Next Sunday afternoon I will be on a mini-roadtrip with many knitting friends, and hopefully soon-to-be knitting friends, to see the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl McPhee, a Canadian resident. She will be taking the small town of Eau Claire by storm, dragging several Twin Citiesans to see her, along with several suburbanites as well.

How should I prepare? Should I make her a card? Take a pic of her with my/ DH's sock, like she photographs her knitted socks in action?

I shall have to ponder that a bit.

Last night I was a Mojito Mistress again. Instead of doing the same thing over and over, squeezing the limes, blending the drink etc. I went ahead and made a triple batch. It was just right. It also gave me more time to enjoy delicious homeade salsa, soft tacos, and hand-rubben pork meat. MMM...This was all at the home of another blogger- the Estacion Liceu blogger. Coincidentally she is the childhood friend of DH- how cool that we could have such a great time hanging out together.

I have been domestic at times this week. Craziness. The night we got back from D.C. our luggage and the rest of the plane's worth of people were luggage-less. It was a good hour and a half late-as it had boarded the wrong plane. Not to mention the D.C. Northwest check-in printer was down- and it took twice as long to check in for the flight. Plus, the check-in lady got all crabby with me because she didn't know I had luggage to check.

Then, we picked the short-looking line for the security line, and had to stand in some bomb-detecting enclosure that strategically sprayed an air-like substance at all parts of one's body while standing still, barefooted, and smelling the body odors of all the previous travelers. What an experience.

I did a little knitting while I was there- but realized Wednesday night after SNB that the back of my cardigan was too small. Before it was way too big, then too small, and I have begun trying to knit it just right. I think I got it figured out. I think Shelly was being tactful when she asked me what I was knitting- no- my back is not the size of a 4T. Does anyone remember that size?
