i’m one lucky bitch

March 16, 2010

while taking a nap this afternoon, i got a couple text messages letting me know that the yarn harlot blogged about me and my socks!:

“And there was Steven,
who not only knit his first socks, but knit them for me, which was pretty outstandingly touching. (I’ve had a good look at them too… they’re perfect. They look nothing like first socks. Darned good knitting, even though he had to put a rush on them and finished them right there.)”

i know they’re not perfect, but i’m loving the idea the sock knitter herself gave my socks a proverbial gold star.

in the very same post you should also note ms. juliet (the fine lady who knitted the carrot).
or as i know her, my first fan.

waiting in in the morning rain for the library to open, she asked me if i was steven. i figured since i was back in michigan that maybe i was a school mate of one of her children or maybe she was a former teacher i just didn’t recognize.

no my friends, she recognized me from my blog. (how cool is that?!)
believe me when i say that was the best way to start one of my favorite days.
she even asked me to put some of my mojo on her carrot.
thanks juliet!

unrelated to my harlot encounter, i’m currently watching the original halloween by john carpenter. in one brief shot, you see that laurie (jamie lee curtis) has a knitting bag! how cool is that! i guess her long aluminum needles and blue acrylic yarn are supposed to add to her 70’s girl scout persona.

all i could think was she should use them to defend herself later on in the movie!

    I LOVED that you have the yarn harlot’s stamp of approval on your socks.

    They are perfect. You had the perfect color (green), the perfect amount of time to make them (finished seconds before she came out to speak, giving you plenty of time to hang on her every word), perfect pattern (okay, it is the vanilla sock, right?), and perfect opportunity to give them to her! PERFECT SOCKS!

    Your first fan, Juliet

    I’m gonna sell the pictures of us on our roadtrip to the National Enquirer now that you’re FAMOUS! I’m sure I can photoshop that one of the sleepy cows into something scandalous…

    So happy for you xxx

    Hi Steven,
    So you made last-minute socks for the Yarn Harlot – how cool is that!! I was sitting right behind you in the audience and you let me squish those socks. They really were beautiful – gorgeous color and perfect stitches – I noticed. So I guess I am 2 degrees of separation from Stephanie’s socks. If that was her vanilla sock pattern, then Barb sitting next to me was making those too, but in a very different yarn. Great to meet you, and kudos again! Regards, Cheryl.
