TNNA - the good news and the bad news...

The good news is - I managed to get packed and out of my house on time at 4:30AM - the bad news is, the first thing I did after getting through security at the airport was to spill coffee down the front of my shirt. I did manage to wash most of it out, but there was a sort of wet t-shirt contest whiff about the affair. Here, in my homage to Crazy Aunt Purl and her predilection for taking photos in ladies' rooms, is proof.

But I dried, and I flew and I got to the hotel, good news. The bad news is I pretty much had camnesia all weekend.

The good news is the book signing went really well - thanks so much to all who attended, got books, and came back later to tell me that you loved it. I spent most of Sunday having Sally Fields moments - "They like me, they really like me!" The bad news is I came down with a wicked round of food poisoning on Saturday night, and am still, three days later, feeling kind of cruddy. (The secret good news is at least I lost five pounds, although I wouldn't recommend this diet to anyone).

The bad news is, when it was finally time to leave my flight was delayed by two hours. The good news is that I got to spend that waiting time with my dear buddy The Crochet Dude! He had been at TNNA for a book signing also - of the fabulous Men Who Knit and the Dogs Who Love Them which he wrote with Annie Modesitt.

I had such an amazing weekend, saw so many wonderful people and books and yarns and designers and designs. And now I have to go back to bed. More soon, I promise.

And the last good news is I found the baby jacket photo I promised you all...
