Someone help me!

I'm at TNNA with the wild and crazy Mosaic crew. We miss you Sandy! Thanks for holding done the fort. It's knitters gone wild here at the Hyatt. If I hear Shoes one more time, I'm going to pierce my leg with a knitting needle. I swear I'll do it, I really will.
Last night we had delicious food at a steak house. I had some of the best Pinot. It was a 2005 Macmurray....yum. Mimi had quite a few cosmos and Debbie had a healthy number of Appletinnis. They were highly entertaining. I have great pics soon to come.


Today at the show they had a contest to see who could get the most free samples. I think Gina won, but she also made up the rules...typical =>. I was working most of the day and didn't get around to see all of the booths, but here's where I need help....all of the companies I'm repping for keep telling me to come by when the show's over and take anything I want. Let's take a sec and think about that. Anything I want, umm ya, anything I want. These people don't know me yet, because I would clean them out of house and home if I took anything I wanted.


I can't wait!
Tonight we all went to the Vogue knitting party. We met every knitting celebrity you can think of, well almost. We met: Debbie Bliss, Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton, Louisa Harding, Jane Ellison, Kat Boardi, Maggi Jackson, Nicky Epstein, Claudia, Maie, Eunny Jang, Karin Strom, and probably more that I can't think of right now. Many pictures soon to come.

I have a gut feeling that something bad is about to happen. Around all of these celebrities, my dear friend Mimi did the most unglamorous thing. I'll let you all use your imaginations.

By the way, I finished my Farmhouse Cotton Blossom Sweater. I love it and wore it today to the show.

I loved that sweater, Loren. You look fabulous, darhling!!!!!!!!!What you needed to go with it were the perfect pair of shoes, ohmigaudshoes!!! Stupid girl!!

Loren said...

Where is a nice new addi turbo lace needle when I need it? They're nice and sharp.

Nancy said...

I hope you took it ALL!

jody said...

silly Loren-don't stab YOURSELF with the needle! Stab one of the Shoes ladies-then maybe that will shut them up-and you will still be able to walk....and wear shoes

Oh, I'm so envious of your rubbing elbows with all those famous knitters and getting your hands on all that free yarn! (When are you coming back to Richmond and knit with us, hee hee!) I hope you'll post some more yarn pr0n pictures, so that we may live vicariously through you! :-)
