First off, while riding the 6 to get to this event I started to feel a little tickle in my throat. I've had problems before with my tonsils so I know the warning signs of getting sick. At that point I could've went back home and drug myself up so that I could've avoid getting the full brunt of whatever germs were attacking my body. But you know what, I waited all year for this even and dagnammit I had plans. I wasn't about to let a little tonsilitis get in my way!
I sat down for a spell to knit a little, then I decided to take a stroll. Then I hear a voice that says "Excuse me but are you Harlem Purls?". I looked up to see my fellow sistah friend Divine Ladi (yay). Of course we chatted for a bit before I started wandering again.
After that I ran into Tawana at the fashion show, then we met up with Necia, Jeanine, Rosie, Kim and Marva. I couldn't really chat with them like a wanted because I was busy teaching someone how to knit but you know how it is when us knitters get together.I tracked down Lily Chin and got a pic with her. See?
Then they all went off to join the Sit N Knit group while I went off to the knitting tent to teach.
By this time my throat is killing me but I refuse to pay it any mind. Like I told you, I had plans! So I closed down the knit out then proceeded to Knitty City to meet none other than the Yarn Harlot. I asked one teensy little question and she called me a trouble maker. Moi? *devilish grin*
When we first sat down I spotted someone in the crowd who looked familiar. I started staring at her trying to place her face. The conversation kinda went like this:
Me: I know you!
Me: You have a blog right?
Her: Uh Huh.
Me: Your a Sistah Friend?
Me: Don't tell me the name of your blog....Don't tell me....OK tell me.
Her: A Knitter in Queens.
Here we are pictured with Sahara. Sahara was rocking that dress also.
So that was my day. I felt sick as a dog by the time I left to go home but it was all worth it. On my walk home I saw this on a wall and it evocked all types of emotions in me. My mom passed away on October 17th 2002 so I want to dedicate this picture to her.
