The Yarn Harlot did a talk/signing at Borders in Columbus Circle, so I went.
Did I bring a camera? Didn't even think of it. Bad blogger.
But I did take a couple of shots with my cell phone when she started (the first 60 seconds she was up there, the camera flashes were going like crazy--the woman is a rock star).
I suspected that the first picture might've come out blurry because it was so hard to hold the phone steady so I took another.
Um, yeah, you'll just have to trust me that it was her.
I got to the right part of the store just as she was being led to the stage. I made my way around to the side and sat in the aisles of the kid's section. I was sitting next to a couple where it was clear that the boyfriend didn't care to listen. It was nice that he came to keep her company (because I guess the dozens of knitters weren't company enough), but she tried explaining things to him at a few points. She turned around to tell him that "Joe" was the Harlot's husband and the guy was reading a book. He wasn't even listening to the talk any more.
Do I drag HA along to knitting events? No, reader, I do not. Do you know why? Because he doesn't want to and I love him. Does he drag me to Dr. Who conventions? Well, technically, it wasn't dragging because I agreed to the trip and had a good time. But still! You get my point.
Everyone around me was sitting on the floor and knitting. Did I think to bring my knitting? No, I did not. Bad knitter! But I totally kept eyeing other people's projects. I need to do some knitting of my own now since I'm suffering from knitter's envy.
