City Knitters

I'm a couple of days late with my synopsis of the Boston Knit-Out (and Crochet Too!). Sunday morning I headed up to Barnes & Noble to pick up two of my fellow Manchvegans, Gigi and Lora, and we hit the highway for the big city. We got there about 15 minutes before it officially opened, but we were able to scope out all the vendors' tables and get some sweet swag.

Our pal Gigi won the fastest hooker contest:

We met up with a couple more from our group, Ericka and Chris and we all enjoyed the fashion show, show and tell, and keynote speakers. We all then headed up to Windsor Button, which I was delighted to learn was open. I didn't get too much, some pretty baby alpaca brush for a scarf and of course sock yarn.

We finally had our fill of yarn shopping and headed off to an early dinner at a wonderful pub that Ericka suggested. It was a wonderful day and I'm already looking forward to next year's.

In Sock Wars news, I've officially made my first kill. The oh-so-gracious and sweet Jamie has received her socks of doom and has sent to me her target's information. I'll be receiving her socks-in-progress within the next day or two, and hopefully I can kill another before my death package arrives (any day now). I'm living on borrowed time here.

And finally, Gina tagged me, so here goes, seven songs I'm hearting right now:

1. "Especially in Michigan" Red Hot Chili Peppers off Stadium Arcadium
My favorite song from my favorite CD
2. "Severed Hand" Pearl Jam, Self titled
3. "Caring is Creepy" The Shins, Oh, Inverted World
4. "Young Pilgrims" The Shins again, Chutes too narrow
5. "Trouble" Coldplay, Parachutes
6. "Blackbird" Beatles, The White Album
7. "Four of Two" They Might Be Giants, No!

The Knit-Out sounds like it was so much fun. I'm sad I didn't know about it ahead of time, but there's always next year. Can't wait! I hope you get the new socks soon and make another kill! :)
