Yes, that's Stephanie's signature. She wasn't there, but they still had autographed books left over from her visit in September.:woohoo:

Nice haul you got there. I am on the lookout for Yarn Harlot books now too. I think she lives in the next town over from me. There is a small yarn store in that town where she goes for a Free Knit session on Mondays. Maybe one Monday I will get there and get to meet her.

Anyways congrats on the fantastic shopping trip.

Ohhhhh, I love the Yarn Harlot! And that cashmere looks amazing. I have one of those sweater keychains too, they're adorable aren't they?

Great haul! I wasn't a knitter when I lived in Atlanta, but next time I go home, that will be the first place I go to!

That's cool about the tattoo! You are famous!! :notworthy:

My daughter, who got her first tattoo on March after she turned 18, thinks your tattoo is so cool! Notice I said first, she is already saving up for the next one she wants...

Well that's another one for the list of places to go when I get to Atlanta, LOL. As it stands I think I would have to stay a week just to see all the places I want to go to.

Thank you for the recommendation

So Kristen, what fab thing are you going to knit with that lovely cashmere, or are you just at the place where you're holding it to your cheek to get some good vibes?

I live in Atlanta, and I love love love Knitch. So many beautiful yarns and everyone is so helpful and friendly. I'd be there every day if little things like my job didn't get in the way. ;)

Thank you everyone. That is one super cool yarn shop. If you're ever in Atlanta, it's a MUST.

Tattoos are an addiction. I have 6. My newest isn't even 2 months old and I'm already planning my 7th.. and 8th. :mrgreen:

I haven't decided yet, but something lacy for sure. Maybe something from KnitSpot.com or Victorian Lace Today. :inlove:
