I love the Yarn Harlot. Seriously - my love for her has no bounds. Did you see her post about Steeking? Honestly, the thought of me taking scissors to my knitting would require more than a shot of Glenlivet. I think I would need some good drugs too (the benefits of being a pharmacist!).
I remember sometime last year (of course I can't find the link for you to see it yourself...) she did a post on fixing a cable that was turned the wrong way. You can not even imagine how amazing it was - it was like magic. Maybe she should be called the Yarn Yoda. Or Knitting Sorcerer. Or Sticks and String Shaman.
J. and I have plans to meet the woman herself. Sometime, somewhere it will happen. And we will bask in the glow of her DPNs.
