This evening I found myself at Barnes and Noble purchasing two magazines. (Titles are not important.) ((Wait. What magazines do you THINK I was purchasing?)) Anyway, the woman working the register complimented me on my mitts. I asked her if she knits.
She knits, she spins, and she used to work at a yarn store. I absolutely LOVE meeting fiber studs in random places.
It has been a long day.
I made turkey tetrazzini for my carnivorous family.
I worked through two freelance chapters.
I gave spelling tests to first graders.

oooo! I know! I know what you’re talking about! I have a lendrum.
And I also love meeting knitters in the wild.
I have an Ashford. And also love running into People Like Me in unexpected places … recently I had a lovely chat about sock knitting and Ravelry with a nurse who works at the hospital where I was spending the night.
Yaaay, I’m one of the 17% despite not having one at all. Hubby is the one with his eye on Lendrum for Christmas. Can’t wait to tell him when he gets home from work that he’s a ‘fiber stud’. Can I be one too if I just knit/crochet the finished product?
And, by way of commenting on all that, I’ve got…nothing.
But, great going on the BlahBlahPoMo thing, Angie! Yessiree, you’re doing great (Rah!Rah!) Keep ’em comin’, Kiddo :-)
I loved spelling tests when I was younger–I always did well and there was a right answer and a wrong answer. That made me feel good.
(I am not one of those 17%. I thought you were talking about a car with a cute ladybug on the dashboard.)
(a magazine about spinning, and a vegan/vegetarian mag, or maybe one about couch to 5k)
Walking backwards is a major form of exercise for older women in China, and the hardcore ones walk backwards up the ramps in the Temple of Heaven park in Beijing. I would be on the ground clutching my sprained ankle.
Matchless here. Jane Austen Knits and the Holiday Edition of Interweave?
Rachel’s comment above reminded me that I preordered Jane Austen Knits! I totally forgot!
Have you made any of these yet?
I have 2 in my pocket right now. I don’t know what I think is so funny, but they make me laugh and laugh.
I would love an Ashford.
I am the 17%.
Fiber studs. Hehe!
Not one of the 17% :-(
Late to the party, playing catch up, but..
I know where you were and who you were talking too, used to work with that crazy chick.
Say wha!? <–don't know where that came from
