I Partied With a Rock Star

...in the knitting world, that is.

One of my favorite LYSs, The Woolie Ewe, hosted Louisa Harding yesterday for two classes. It was way cool! I met Louisa last June, the last time she appeared at The Ewe...and I just know she remembered me.

I started my day with a pedicure at the Coldwater Creek Spa. I cannot say enough about this place, nor the pedicure. It was hands (or would it be feet?) down, the best pedicure I have ever had. You should go. They swaddle you in this chair with a warm neck roll around your shoulders and lay you back and do your feet. It was heaven. I was feeling so hot and sassy - except for the fact that my toes were freezing. I did remember to pack my pedi socks; so, the rest of my feet were warm....but I digress.

I had my car packed for the day. The aforementioned pedi socks, flip flops, purse, and camera in said purse, ready to document my being in the presence of Lady Louisa. She's a loyal subject of the Queen - you know the one - and had flown to the US to attend the TNNA Conference out in California. The last six days have been spent flying closer to England, but making stops at a different yarn shop along the way.

I arrive, say hello to some people I know, take my seat, get situated and decide - after Louisa got us started and I had reached my stopping point - to get up and take a few pictures for the blog. Um...I had the camera...but the battery was dead.

Merry Karma was not amused.

Luckily, and thank the Lord for modern conveniences...my phone has a camera. So, I will leave you with a few pics. Sorry about the quality, but at least you can get the idea.


Here she is...Louisa Harding.














The students were working hard.













Here is one of our lovely hostesses, Sue. I caught her by surprise.













My friends - Tasha in the very back wearing her Central Park hoodie, and Liz on the left in red.









So - a good time was had by all.

Merry Karma out.

That looks like a great time! What was the class about?

Hey Girl!

She had two classes from her new book Dauphine - Embellishments on Coat and Knitted Scarf with Embellishments. I went more to see her and the people.

What fun! It was great having you there for the 2nd half of the day - but heck, I didn't know your tootsies had been pampered that morning. Mine would have been jealous! (I did win a Nordstrom Spa gift card for $50 towards a pedicure - so I may have to go make me an appointment for SOON. My tootsies definitely need a visit.)

Tasha said...

Ha! Love it - I must admit - I was wondering why you had on adorable sandals when it was freezing outside - but I don't judge.

I'm jealous as heck that I missed that! (Imagine the tangle of yarn I could have created...)

-and-

flip flops in the winter? That's my MK!!!
