Harlot in the Hood

If you haven't already heard the very LOUD buzz, the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee will be in town tomorrow as part of the Free Library of Philadelphia's Book Festival

From the Library's website:

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee | Things I Learned from Knitting (Whether I Wanted To or Not)
Sunday, May 18, 2008 at 12:00PM
Citibank Main Stage

The irreverent spokeswoman for today’s knitting revival, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee—a.k.a. the Yarn Harlot—is the author of several books on knitting, as well as keeper of the popular blog, In Things I Learned from Knitting, she examines age-old aphorisms—e.g., “hope springs eternal”—with respect to knitting, casting them in a punchy, upbeat light.

Stop by the shop, we're open from 12-5 - we have copies of her book, and I wouldn't be shocked at all if she stoked your yarn addiction just a teensy bit - and of course, we got yarn!

I just had to stop by and let everybody know that Diana (of Rosie's fame) has a cameo in the Yarn Harlot's blog. There is a picture of her with her first pair of socks on the May 19th entry.

Always proud to be part of a family of knitters,

Congratulations Diana!
