It was 3:30 when I headed out the door to get my husband so I could get to my carpool so we could get to hear Stephanie on time. So we all grabbed a bite before heading home after the 7:00 talk in San Francisco.

But before I crash, I had to share a picture. Baby Jack (whose mother drove Mary and me) is not quite three months old and is just starting to nail this idea of smiling back at people–and his smile lights up the entire room.

Stephanie’s does, too. It was so very good to get to see her finally–been too long. The bookseller was putting names on post-it notes in book copies as the line inched forward and Stephanie grinned at me for the woman’s sake, “Oh, I know how to spell HER name!”

Made my day, I tell you.

Midnight. Saw DebbieR. Saw the neighbor a block away sitting behind me, who did not know that I knit (and vice versa, obviously).

More later.

How can anyone not know you knit?

So wonderful! And I am sure that Jack and his family will treasure this photo.

Delightful to spend time with Stephanie, I love listening to her. Hoping she does a “home town” event so I get to see her again.

A quick note – I’m no good with linky type things, but check out a blog called “Boulderneigh”. Lovely lady north of you, on March 4th posted about a pattern for knitting birds nests for orphaned birds and the organization that is requesting them is pretty close to you I think. She links to the Knitty blog which then links to the bird rescue. Check it out

What Ruth said. Stephanie will be in Denver on Monday, but I have choir rehearsal that night. I guess I’ll have to choose Bernstein over Pearl-McPhee this time.
