So last Thursday night I got to hang out at the Ravelry Happy Hour that happened at Stitches West.
Me, always the shy girl, stayed low-key and just enjoyed people watching.
I saw some familiar knitting celebrities such as Cookie A., Adrienne and Kristine from a Verb for Keeping Warm and Jessica, Casey & Mary-Heather from Ravelry, of course.
I was super excited to finally get my hands on one of those cool Ravelry ‘Hello my name is’ buttons that I always see people wearing.
Even though there was a cash bar there, I talked myself out of the liquor line realizing there might be some raised eyebrows seeing someone with the name, Liver Chick, drinking a long island ice tea.
I did meet a couple of nice people and got to see a parade of wonderful shawls & sweaters that people wore to the event.
I wasn’t able to attend any classes or go shopping at the market, but for a couple of hours I got to feel a little less like a solitary knitter and more like a member of kick-ass knitting family.
