A day in cat ears

Last night at a Halloween party my friends dared me to wear cat ears on my trip to Webs to meet a bunch of Knitty folk. Since I'm not really averse to looking dumb in public I agreed. Just a disclaimer so you all don't think I'm totally nuts. ;)

I got up bright and early and met bryghtrose, periwinklepoodle and bitterknitter to head out to WEBS and meet everyone.


Me, periwinklepoodle, and bryghtrose at WEBS

enallagma9 arrived and gave me this great yarn from Dicentra Designs!



I got to meet my last downstream SP, Batty



and theherocomplex



And we compared socks!



bryghtrose, enallagma9, and bluepeninsula, hanging out by the wall o' needles



I think WEBS almost killed Yarner, who was visiting from Alabama.



I didn't get pictures of everyone, the amazing marymac, lindydiva, djd, raeknits!, and sunidesus came too!

All in all a great day! Check out the other blogs for more pictures.

OMG! that picture of deb is so hysterical!

if they even make a D.A.R.E. program for yarn, that should be one of the cautionary pictures!

it was so great to meet you!

Forget stash enhancement, Batman-- holy blogroll enhancement!

I guess I can't say great to meet you, huh? I thought the kitty ears were cute, not weird, btw.

Ariel, you're about the cutest person with kitty ears ever!
A field trip to WEBS would probably have made my bank account explode. So I'm kind of happy to be thousands of miles away. ;-)

I thought that was you I spied wearing cat ears on Laura's blog! Sorry I missed out on seeing you all. My WIPs made me knit this weekend with only a break for dinner and some bowling. :(

JEALOUS! So JEALOUS!! I didn't know there was a WEBS plan for this past weekend, LOL! Surely I could have bypassed DC for such an event - given the Rhinebeck issue and all. *sigh*
Looks like you guys had a blast - fun fun! What did YOU buy for your stash?
BTW, kitty ears are nothing to fear. :) See you tomorrow...

I love the cat ears. It's a great way to make sure you meet up with people you've never met in the flesh: "I'll be the one in the cat ears."
WEBS looks like stacks of fun for all!

Great pictures, and I was so excited to meet everybody!

Special thanks to you, stariel, for doing a hand spinning demo for me right there at WEBS! My spooky SP sent me some roving and orange CoolAid, and I get to try out my brand new spindle.

The kitty ears were very cute. Perfect for a yarn-crazy day!
