A Very Long Post

Yep, today will be a very picture-filled post from this weekend. We'll start with Saturday first. Renee and I decided to hit a movie with Kim before heading over to the Harlot event that evening. We went to go see Run, Fat Boy, Run and it was very funny. Then we killed some time and headed over to the event. There were lots of people there, but blogger is not showing me the love this morning and it won't post pictures, so I'll add some later on when it decides to play nice again. (ETA: Now adding pictures) Ann, Katie, and baby Gretchen.Danger Heather!

I ended up doing some running around before the event because Jessi needed some help with the raffle tickets, so a bunch of us pitched in and did what we could. I got a lot of comments about the Kiri shawl too, which was rather entertaining. Finally, the talk began. I really should have brought my SLR with me to get better pictures...The talk was good, and knitters will take over the world was the gist of the thing. It was the first time I had ever heard her give a talk before, so that was fun. During the talk, I frogged the Dragon Shawl. I figured if I did it during the talk, I wouldn't curse, scream, or cry about how much work went into that stupid four inch triangle. I behaved myself and took a picture of the yarn with Stephanie when I went to get my books signed. I also started a couple of projects this weekend since I had finished Kiri and needed something to do. I also frogged Branching Out. I was really hating that scarf and instead of putting time and effort into a project I despise, I decided it was best to just get rid of it. I did start on Clessidra and got the ribbing done. I also started a generic sock. And then yesterday I cast on for a summer shirt that is from Hot KnitsAnd I made a chainmail necklace this weekend from a kit I picked up when Renee and I ran to Hobby Lobby:There's the weekend in a nutshell, now with the pictures.

Knit on...

I am so glad you decided to frog the dragon shawl; I think a fresh start will do you good. You should start it again once you are in Korea to make it symbolic of the time you spend there.

Glad you had a good time! I didn't know there was frogging going on - I'm sorry. :(
