It’s a fact, she must be a wizard to do all that she does. The Yarn Harlot knits (a lot…and quickly!), speaks, travels, writes, and raises a family (with 3 teenage girls…holy moly!). She has a following of which I am proud to be one, and I am going to hear her speak tomorrow at I Knit in London. Not only will she be there, but there will be a variety of other speakers, workshops, and knitting and fiber related stalls for shopping.
It really is like going to see the Wizard and Oz!
I spent a great deal of today trying to figure out what the heck to bring with me to knit. After all, I’ll be spending 6+ hours on the train, and knitting during the Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s session (that’s the Harlot’s real name) and meals. There’s no room for error when packing, that’s for sure. Forget a needle? I could have to sit on the train and do nothing!
I decided to stick with socks, which make a perfect travel project. I’ll be bringing a simple stockinette sock in the Lorna’s Laces Pilsen that I showed off yesterday:
and I’ll also be bringing the Halloween themed Horcrux socks that I’ve been knitting:
You can’t see the Horcruxes (it’s been raining for days…there’s not much I can do without natural light), but they are there, Harry Potter fans!
So, I think I’m prepared. I’ve got my knitting notions/needle case, so I should be good to go.
And of course, I am going with three other knitters and traveling to a knitting show…so I could always buy anything I’ve forgotten.
Good to remember.
