Yarn Harlot

Yes, I know. You have all been ANXIOUSLY awaiting my news from the Yarn Harlot event - yes??? Well, maybe not but we had a blast! First we went to brunch at American Roadhouse. It was me, the warlock, ESC, Hockeymom, Chicken Goddess, Meg, Laura, Jane, Allen, Claudia, Megan, Diana and a couple of others that I'm not sure I remember their names! So that was fun. And I met Debbie once I finally figured out who she was! Sorry Debbie! And I saw Melissa and met Kelley! I'm sorry, I don't know everyone's blogs so if you can fill in some blanks here - leave a comment!

Then we headed over to stand in line. Luckily, we got there early so we were some of the first crazies in line. We stood around and talked and laughed and had just a grand old time!

Then, we went in for the knit it. So much fun! There was a raffle and I won a $25 gift certificate for Knitch! Woo hoo! Then, Stephanie came out and she was hilarious, as always.

Then the same group and plus a few more went to Atkins Park for a beer and some lunch. Then it was back to Knitch for the signing.

Thanks to everyone's advice, we DID bring her a yarn bowl and she loved it! We brought her this one:

She loved it!!!!

All in all it was a great day. I had several folks come up to me and ask about bowls and we even added one to the raffle! So that was fun. Several people recognized the "Warlock" and one woman even came up to him and asked if she could have her picture taken with him!!! Sheeesh - you know THAT went straight to his ego...........Haha!

OK - I know, I know, you need more clues!

The next clues are visual. We have turned THIS:

Hmmmmm.......I wonder why?????? You can still send in guesses until April 30th. So if you haven't sent in a few guesses (don't forget the most accurate AND the most outrageous are getting prezzies!) go ahead and send some in.
Also look for Knit Witch to have a face lift soon! We are getting ready to install an honest to goodness SHOPPING CART since we have hit the big time and all - haha!!!! Woooooo hooooooo!

Where did all our stuff go? Was I asleep again???? And YES....the knit weekend with the Yarn Harlot crazies was FUN! I am ready to do it again! And no....getting my Warlock/weenie warmer model picture request did not go to my head....much.

Knit Witch said...

Oh, I moved you out while you were sleeping, did I forget to mention that?!?! Yeah, and I could barely fit you and your ego through the door when we got home!!!!!

Figures. YOU say "Ego" HE says "head". hehehehehehe

You know it went to his head. The question is, which one?

theyarnwhisperer said...

good lord, you've been busy. I hardly recognize the place without yarn tucked here and there

theyarnwhisperer said...

I know I'm disqualified from the actual contest but I did have an idea for something outrageous that I had to share.
You and Wayne are going to buy a huge alpaca farm with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Brad and Angelina will continue to adopt children from third world countries and these children will be used to spin the alpaca yarn once you have sheared it. You will then name the different weights of yarns after the Jolie/Pitt kids.... worsted weight named Zahara (she's a spicy little thing from what I read), the sport weight yarn Maddox, the sock yarn Pax, and of course, the delicate laceweight yarn Shiloh. Your chunky and superchunky yarns will be named after the impending twins.

Uh oh, after the first pics i thought, wow someone had a major yardsale! But then flashback to 3 years ago...stage the house in a minimalist way....your selling your home and moving? Hmmmm... looks like great fun with the harlot! SHe will be out our way over my birthday (well 3 hours near). I haven't convinced hubby yet of a road trip and i would have to apply eyelash extensions first thing on a client the next morning, hmmm...

MrsFife said...

You're preparing for an alpaca stampede through your house?

Knit Witch said...

Melissa - HOW did you find out about our hookup with Angelina and Brad?!?! Wow, you are quite the sleuth!

Mrsfife - Alpaca stampede, eh? I better pick up one of those large size pooper scoopers while I am out today!

Calicoknits said...

Well it's hard to top Melissa's guess but I'll throw my hat in. It is apparent that you have decided to liquidate your house and go on the road with Matthew McConaughey in his RV. Warlock will look great on a Harley alongside visiting alpaca farms all over the country and spreading yarny goodness. The trouble will be finding a helmet large enough for Mr Man swollen ego.

Jillyr said...

You are selling your house (part 1) and packing and shipping your stuff across the "pond" and moving to England!(part 2) :D

Carol said...

I know you're moving to the mountains :)

Bibby said...

Brittany, I'm afraid I may be the one responsible for the "Warlock's" swollen head!!! But, I have to say for me, it made a perfect day even better......ahh

You are a precious couple & I wish you much success with your fabulous yarn bowl, etc. business.

Alpacas rule!!!

Cute pic of you & the wee tiny horse.

sophanne said...

You'r not moving- your preparing to exterminate moths and termites

ab said...

oooh, I have a guess...
You are preparing to relace the flooring?
??? Only because that is what I want to do at my house, desperately, and when I saw your pics of stuff cleared out it was the first thing I thought of.
ps/ Super big thanks for your help and comment on my blog, and yes... I have checked out your crochet youtubes! Thanks again!


Hello! It's grace who is addicted to your videos!! Ok, my guesses are...
You are redoing your home as an office for your business so you have to have room for new merchandize...
You are renting out part of your home to someone else?
well... I can hope i win anyway!
