First off, I have to say, that Melynda and I meet via Ravelry only the Wednesday before and next thing you knew I was driving to her house to meet her and carpool with her down to the big D. I was a little unsure about the whole thing but luckly she is just as crazy as me and we hit it off! We already want to make plans to see each other again.
Once we got there we had to throw our booths/tables up - mind you this was the first time either of us has done a show so we had no idea what we were doing!

After a couple hours at our tables, with lots of happy knitters passing through, it was time for the main attraction - The Yarn Harlot! We listened to her speak and it was great. Lots of laughs too! After she spoke we got the chance to meet her and get a photo. She is just awesome. I want to drink a beer with her! - but only the 'good stuff', right Stephanie ;)

A big thanks to French Press Knits for inviting me to go. (If all haven't already, you have to check out her great patterns) I can't wait until we can do it again! Thanks to everyone that stopped by to say 'Hi' - I met a lot of great people. And thanks to everyone that bought stationery. My new cards were a hit and got a lot of laughs. You guys are the best!
