I'm a winner - in more ways than one!

Tonight I ventured to Borders in Annapolis to knit, listen, laugh and enjoy myself immensely at the Maryland stop of The Yarn Harlot's current book tour.

I arrived at about 2:30 (for the 7 PM event). Sat in the second row, behind the ladies that had been there since 9 AM!!!! Book signing tickets were dispensed with abandon. Arriving at 2:30, I had ticket #67. Waiting for groups to be called, I saw one ticket with a 179, and I know that some audience members did not pick up tickets or bring/buy books to be signed. So, there were more than 179 people at the bookstore to hear Stephanie speak.

It was fun. Stephanie was funny, delightful, a great sport. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Maryland in the Fall? Foliage is beautiful!

When I got home, I found an e-mail from Sherri at Sherri Knits. She is celebrating her Blogiversary and I won the prize for commenting during her celebration. Drop by and say hi!

A delightful ending to a delightful day!

What a great day!

Thanks for your help on the pizza survey. That sounds like my kind of pizza, made me feel very hungry (but then much like pudding, I always have room for pizza!)
