Extra special event.
Thursday 22 March, 6pm +, probably at Starbucks at MANUKA.
A HARLOT HAPPENING.
If you read the Yarn Harlot, you will be aware from her most recent post that she's planning a VERY BIG book launch on Thursday 22 March in New York.
Spidey and I can't get to NY by then because apparently the wounds from the sale of our kidneys to finance the trip won't be healed sufficiently, so at SnB yesterday the consensus was to have our own event. This was in no small part due to the presence of a new member, Kate, who has ACTUALLY MET Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, and there were 3 socks in progress at the meeting.
We think the Sherpa can swing a shift at Starbucks, Manuka for that night, thus ensuring a very knit-friendly atmosphere.
BRING A SOCK IN PROGRESS if possible.
This is about as far along the planning route as we've made it. Suggestions for activities so far are a march around Manuka knitting and chanting, a Yarn Harlot trivia quiz and a raffle. Any or none of these things may actually happen.
We'll keep you posted as plans progress. Please send in suggestions. We'll also need help with publicity - so put a note on your blog, comment on someone else's blog and invite your mates.
