I love it when life gives you unexpected treats.
Today I was in the bookstore (down in Portland) picking up a copy of Interweave Knits. (I know I could take a copy from their booth at TNNA this weekend, but I have too much pride.) The guy asked if I wanted to sign up for their customer-loyalty program. Sure, I say.
I fill out the application, which includes a line for your email address. He looks at it and asks, "What's Knitter's Review?"
I tell him, and he says, "Why aren't you at the Knit Lit reading across the street?"
That's right, the Knit Lit folks were directly across the street at the Portland Public Library. The reading had just begun. I rushed over, snuck in the back of a crowded auditorium (go us!), and relaxed into a delightful 45 minutes of unexpected knitting candy. Linda Roghaar spoke, joined by her daughter Hannah, who teaches in English in Korea but was home for a quick break.
Sure, I was immediately slammed with a forum brawl when I got home. But I'm still glowing from a marvelous lunchtime treat.
