Coming right to a Borders near me! Hopefully you are coming there, too, for her appearance. I am a big fan of her blog and might have to cast on a first sock for her appearance. She's coming to the Burlington, MA Borders bookstore which is less than two miles from me on August 2nd, a mere three days after our move in date and right before I go to Florida for the Grandpa's 90th birthday. I think I can dig myself out of my unpacking from my move to go see her. Maybe I will drag the Man Who Knits if I can bribe him with food or something.
Speaking of family, my great uncle Lou died last Friday in a tragic car accident. I don't know the details because my family (read:mother) is kindly keeping me oblivious of many things until the bar is over. After that life will come in full force with moving and packing and Yarn Harlot visits and things like family deaths which unfortunately, life doesn't stop for. I am not letting myself think about this because I cannot have another freak stress attack right now, and certainly can't sit around crying. Life is hard. Thank you, whoever you are, for knitting! I will also have the family trip to florida to see grandparents right after the move, first weekend of August, so I will celebrate Uncle Lou's life then with his sister (my grandma) and other relatives
