Photo Op - Thanks Janet

Last night I attended the book signing at Twisted Yarns.  There is a little blurb about it here.  Franklin Habit was in town last night and today and was hosted by the lovely ladies at Twisted Yarns.  Yesterday was also National Chocolate Cake Day.  WHO knew....

Wait back to last night.  I was able to leave work at 3:45 PM so that I could head up to the store.  I knew that traffic would/could get heavy since I would have to pass by the main arteries leading to the airport.  I'm glad that I made that effort, as there ended up being an accident a few exits ahead of the one I needed and traffic was already building.  I arrived at approximately 4:50 PM.  Since the signing didn't start until 5:30 PM I knew I could get some browsing accomplished....cough, cough....you know yarn came home with me.

I brought home two skeins of ShiBui Sock in the 4013 colorway, one skein of Cascade Heritage in the Bark colorway (5609) and one skein of Punta Lace (Hand Paint - 100% Merino) in color HP66.  I promise pictures will come too but I have not had time to get them today.

Franklin was wonderful.  He is warm and witty.  I was amazed with his steady autographing.  He was concentrated and yet effortless all at the same time.  I think I could have chatted with him and the ladies in attendance all evening.  Thanks to Janet and her daughter for having their camera, I have this to share:

Franklin's Visit to Twisted Yarns

Yes, I did schooch down a bit because with heals on I felt too talk to stand up straight.  And yes, you can tell that I HATE having my picture taken.  Thanks again Janet!  It was WONDERFUL to see you again and a pleasure to meet your daughter.  Oh and Janet, who made the blue sweater ( it looks like a February Lady Sweater with long sleeves) and what yarn did they use?  Inquiring minds MUST know!  Oh, and remind Gail to post her brownine recipe soon....
