...And Now for the Money Shots...

Holy Cow! It's Guido! And we're making "Fear Me And My Pointy Sticks" Fists! :)

Wonderful knitters were out full force. On the left was a lady from Rhinebeck, on the right was my dear friend for the evening, Meghan, and the lady sitting down was fixing something fair-aisled.
It's these random knitting shots I just L-O-V-E. Like when we all go to The Great Beyond? If we've been good? It'll look just like this...

Meghan's ultra-cool socks AND shoes. She has an open invitation to come visit, especially since she and her man want to fix up an older house in the country. Heh. We'll take care of that... ;)

Knitters, waiting in line. Mind you, this is OVER AN HOUR before the "show."

There was some pre-seating, but there was space for everyone.

The goodness in my lap. Okay, totally wrong way to say that...everyone got a bag that included yarn and needles for knitting a Warm Up America square.

Random over-the-head shot of knittas behind us. I love how they're all just gettin' busy. America, prepare to Warm Up!

This is a (very bad) picture of The Harlot with flash. I just love the audience member applauding with knitting-in-hand.

The Harlot without flash. Sorry I didn't get a brilliant picture of the Bohus. She's just too darned spunky and fun to stand still long enough for my crappy camera to deal with it. Actually, I think she's taking a picture of us and THE SOCK below.

The Harlot, speaking, keeping us knitting and laughing and crying and cheering.

Hey - who's this I see? Could it be...Jayme-the-wonder-publicist???

What I brought back with me - I wasn't done with my square yet. I'm a slow knitter...also got the book and...
Some kickass buttons.

I'm normally not much of a doer. I do my thing, attend the occasional music festival, but otherwise lay low. To all Knitters out there - if the Harlot is anywhere NEAR your area/state/region...You. Must. Go.

Thanks to everyone who made this evening SPECTACULARRRRRR.

Wonderful photos; I've been searching for some and am so glad I found yours. Love the name of your blog too! Sounds like my house... well, except for the cigars, but I could learn maybe. I like the smell. Happy knitting!

Hi from Kimberly! NYC was such a blast. Please check out the Flickr group I created "Knitters Representing in NYC (and Everywhere Else)" when you can. And feel free to add photos or discussions because we want everyone's stories!
Bunny hugs,
(The Today Show enabler)

"You. Must. Go." -- but we don't have to, when we've got all sorts of wonderful blogs to read with other knitters sharing their stories. It's *almost* as good as getting to go.

(From someone stuck in the Midwest, who hasn't been to NYC in longer than I care to admit to. But we had a Harlot Visit last year, & hopefully we'll be added to her tour again this year. We need a bigger place to have her speak though, as St. Louis is one of the places she singled out in her whole "Represent" idea post.)

I'm so glad you got to go! OH, man, this all just makes me itch for Rhinebeck. And beer. Somehow reading about knitting always makes me want beer. =)

I am so glad you had such a wonderful time! And I need a big copy of that photo of you and Guido, I am so framing that! *sniff* I feel like your Fairy Knitmother! Now you're all grown up and hanging with the famous!
