The event runs October 24-26 and includes several options. I'm opting for the Friday evening "Comedy Club" event with Stephanie, as I have to be home on Sunday to sing at church. That said, there is a Friday afternoon kick-off at the store -- a "Meet and Greet" where I'll be able to have a book (or two) signed and get to talk to these remarkable fibre artists of the knitting genre. The evening event is at a nearby hotel, and includes cocktails, a reception and a talk by Stephanie, including time for Q&A. At the end of the evening (8:30 or so) I'll have the option of driving home or driving to my daughter's for the night...I suspect the latter!
And yes...I'll be taking a sock-on-the-needles with me. :-) I can hardly wait!
