Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka Yarnharlot, when she came to Los Altos, California, on September 9, standing on the right. Stephanie is the author of At Knits End: meditations for women who knit too much, Yarnharlot, Knitting Rules, and a fourth book coming out next March, and is one of the finest, funniest human beings I have ever had the good fortune to meet. She is the kind of person who makes everyone she meets instantly feel they are in the presence of a friend.

It was wonderful to see her again and to see a good person being so successful at what she loves to do. My husband looked at her pictures of the three hundred+ knitters who’d signed in at the shop and then walked to the back to the block-long parking lot that the city had roped off for the event, and commented that the next time, they’ll have to rent the Coliseum for her.

I gave her a pair of cobalt blue handflamed pyrex glass circular knitting needles, the handiwork of Sheila Ernst.

Hooray hooray!

PS — showed Robb the picture of you and her Harlotness, and he said “Wow…your friend Alison is a nice person.”

Thought you’d want to know. Your wonderfulness shines even through internet pictures.

And I’m happy to be your first commenter. 🙂

I just wanted to thank you again for the lovely finger puppet lamb you gave my daughter Audra while we were in line at the Harlot event. She didn’t really appreciate it at the time, but loves it now!
