We have been planning this for some time to go see the Yarn Harlot. The knitting groups we belong to have been all a buzz for weeks and the carpooling and such. I tried to add to the day a little so I had planned to attend the Fiber Festival at La Petite Knitterie Carolyn from All things Strings and Bree from OC Pub knitters joined us in our car and we met Gaby Chris and Megann at the yarn shop. Lori Lawson of Capistrano Fiber Arts Studio was presenting her hand painted yarns and you know we love to support the LYS and one of our favorite hand dyers.
Most of the group couldn't leave without something pretty. We bought 6 hanks of fingering weight alpaca to make some socks for the relatives who live in the colder climates.
3 of the Indian Paintbrush and 3 Laguna Canyon.
Some coffee for the caffeine fans and we were off to the L.A. county library.

It was much larger than I had expected. I live in Orange County and it was our first time here.
There were about 230 people there and the venue was beautiful. As I walked in I saw Laura from A Mano Yarn Center. We met up with the wonderful ladies from the UCI S&B group the we knit with on Thursdays. Total there were 11 of us and two that Gaby had invited also made the trek.
The talk was very entertaining and inspiring to all of us in the room. After the hour and a half of laughs and stories she signed and posed for pictures with all who would stand in line.
Mrs Twisted made a sign for the event that caught her eye from the stage.
I guess she had good eyes lol
She even posed with us after signing her books for us.
