Friday night Dale and Blogless Sharon and I trekked to Porter Square Books in Cambridge to attend a book signing by our dear friend, Stitchy McYarnpants. I knew it would be fun and I was right – Stitchy never disappoints.
We arrived a few minutes late — just in time to hear Stitchy extoling the virtues of the “Budvisor” which was, coincidentally, named by Dale last April when we were all together in Grafton. In true Stitchy form, she gave Dale complete credit for naming this particular piece of her traveling trunk show. He loved the attention. And then the tables turned. She forced him to model this.
Talk about kitschy! A handknit sweater covered in hunting scenes complete with dogs, pheasants, shotguns and shotgun shells. Want to see the back?
Scary, eh? Actually, the truly scary part is that Dale now wants one of these sweaters. Fat chance, honey.
After the books were signed and the trunk was packed we headed over to Christopher’s for dinner. Thanks, Kellee for arranging reservations for all of us! The food was excellent and the beer was cold. I got to pat the Bookish Baby Belly and I got to sit next to my buddy Maryse, who brought me a vintage cable needle to help me overcome my cabling fears. It was a wonderful night and made me realize, once again, how fortunate I am to have made some truly great friends through this here blog.
