Last Wednesday I had the honour of meeting one of my knitting heroes, Debbie Stoller (perhaps I mentioned her?). Not only did she tell us all about her latest book, but how she got started in the knitting world. I was riveted. I was weaving in the ends on the sweater I knit from Superstar Knitting, listening to a very interesting woman talk about knitting, it was heaven.
I wasn’t the only one thrilled to meet Debbie and have her sign my book, all the Urban Yarns ladies were in fine form. Sara even managed to knit the top she is wearing in the picture in only a couple of weeks. It was blocking the night before! Sandra, the queen of cables, knit up a beautiful tomato red dress in only 2 days! Some serious knitters around here I tell ya!
I must say I was totally lame and blurted out ‘You’re the reason I started knitting cool things!’ as soon I sat down at the signing table. What a dork. I was in good company though! Venus had Debbie sign her copy of Bust magazine (another of Debbie’s endeavours) and everyone was excited to meet the knitting guru.
