The Harlot Came to Houston!

The Yarn Harlot

I took this photo of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka The Yarn Harlot right after she wrote “To Christine: Smart ass.” in my book. I kept laughing about that for the rest of the night. I simply adore her.

The rumors are true, I did manage to interview Stephanie briefly for the next PointySticks podcast. However, today I am completely wiped out, feeling a bit puny, and thinking that my total lack of sleep lately is catching up with me. So no finished podcast YET, but it will be done soon. Meanwhile, I have some Koigu and a Gypsy Shawl project calling my name…


None of us could identify what the heck this bug was. It is a good thing that Stephanie was inside signing books and never saw it, because she already thinks Texas is bizarre. Lizards, giant roaches, and huge spiders, she has been trying to figure out how to get rid of a spider problem for decades. Now this strange bug. Any ideas what it is?
