I didn't have any classes today but I was still very busy. After a quick trip to the convention center, I headed downtown to do a little shopping. I picked up some stainless steel water bottle cages for hubby (it's our 11th wedding anniversary in a few weeks and the traditional gift is steel). Then I headed over to Powell's. I was in book heaven!!!! I bought a few books for myself and a few for hubby.
Afterwards, I hustled my butt back to the convention center to participate in setting a new world record for most knitters knitting. The Harlot made us apologize to the Australians who set the record of 256 knitters in June. Then we were told to knit and we did for 15 mins. It's not official yet, but I'm pretty sure there were more than 256 knitters in the room. The experience was out of this world. I had goosebumps the entire time.
ETA: here's a link to a video. Can you spot Gladys? Hint - look for a pooling stole.
The afternoon was spent standing in line and getting my books signed by the Harlot, Cookie A, Cat Bordhi, and Nancy Bush. I did a little more shopping but I didn't buy anything (still lacking in the money department). I bumped into Sivia Harding and I gave her the bootie that I test knit. I also saw Trish from Indigo Moon.
I'll let Gladys post about her adventures but she was basically in Barbara Walker heaven.
My apologies for a pictureless post. Pics are on the camera but there is no available USB port on the laptop.
