knitsters storm mega bookstore

Hi blogsters! MJM and I went to the Yarn Harlot book signing Friday night at a certain mega bookstore. Huge crowd assembled, and most of us were knitting while we waited:

Pierre Pettigrew wandered in, probably just to book browse. He was talking with a clerk and did knitting gestures and had that look on his face lots of non-knitters do when they recall with fondness watching their mother/grandmother/aunt knitting back in the day.

Here she is! She presented a solid hour of stand up comedy about knitters and knitting and CHOKE (cultural humiliation of knitters everywhere):

what am i laughing at?

i have to go back to unnamed store to exchange my copy of stephanie's new book as it has a cut in the front cover-me thinks from a knife blade which i am assuming happened when staff was unboxing the books.

such a shame.
