Amid the driving freezing rain and hail thunderstorm nastiness, about 400 knitters gathered last night.
On the left is the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl McPhee. Can't you tell? Yeah, I can't see her either. Good thing she's soo darn funny, then.
Aside from laughing a lot, last night we learned how knitters are less likely to have dementia or Alzheimer's in life because of our daily constant-- plenty of theta time. Fascinating.
For me, the best part of the night was The Yarnery's fantastic pre-show. I was mightily impressed. Staffers and Men's night knitters were great as the Yarn Harlot Family Knitters. Angie re-wrote lyrics from the Sound of Music-- and it was absolutely hilarious. You really should go check it out for yourself on YouTube! (Thanks to Shelly for posting these!)
Sarah took photos of a few audience members last night-- here's Renee in her adorable new top, moi, and Deepa in her colorful Rosedale Cardi.
It was great to see all of the Minnesota knitters (and tri-state area, Ms. Cathy-Cate!-- and International knitters-- Ms. Holly!) out enmasse last night!
