And I got a single skein of a lovely homespun wool/silk. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but the colors were so pretty that I thought I would figure that out later.
On the counter was a stand with issues of the latest Interweave Knits, and I couldn't resist telling the salesperson that my design was on the cover. So she actually asked me for my autograph! She took out an issue and put it down on the counter for me to sign. I was so thrilled, my hand was shaking a bit-- I was afraid I was going to mess up my signature, have to buy that issue, and sign another one. Made my day!
