"Obsessively Crafty"

That's one of the new terms I learned from the fabulous knitters I interviewed for my story (or as Rebecca would say - strong-armed into it). Interviewing Stephanie was a lot of fun. We both like to talk about knitting and we both like to knit, so it was a bit challenging to stay focused. And at the end of the interview, she asked about my knitting (we were both knitting during the interview) so I tried to play it cool even though I was secretly gushing on the inside.
(This is a pretty bad picture, I was actually not that far away)
Later we attended her talk at Third Place Books where she continued to entertain with her humor, wit and knitting passion! As usual, she drew a huge crowd plus lots of Purly Girls were there!

(Jessica captures her sock for the moment. Jessica also gave me the term "Obsessively Crafty" I like it better than my Craft A.D.D. term.)

Aw crap. I didn't know my hair was that gray in the back. :(

I'm glad your interview went well. Looks like you all had a great time listening and knitting.

I'm sorry I didn't get to meet more knitting bloggers there. It was so mobbed that I'm sure I missed people I knew, much less those I only 'know' on-line. At least everyone has photos so eventually I'll be able to put names and faces together.

Jessica, I think it's the light not your hair. Photo exposures were all out of whack with that black stage backdrop in the bright room.
