Love for the Harlot, Part 2

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.

What's the average gestational period for your first pair of socks ever and does the time taken to unravel and pick up stitches again count?

I don't count false starts.

My first pair of socks took about 2 weeks but I made them out of chunky wool and they only went ot my ankles. I took up sock knitting right after learning how to make dishcloths. I didn't know that socks are hard. Maybe it's better that way.

Hey, T.! Don't tell the Harlot all our plans or she will continue to elude us!

Steeks scare the shit out of me. I'm just not that brave.

And I have met the Yarn Harlot when she was here 2 summers ago. She is just as hilarious in person as she is on her blog.

Oh, and the link to the cable post is here -

Honestly, the link got cut off in my last comment. Here it is in full -
