Registered for Vogue Knitting Live 2012

The excitement can barely be contained by this tiny little blog post! Broke Knitter is officially registered for Vogue Knitting Live NYC 2012! Three full days of mingling with the knitteratti, emptying her bank account at the marketplace, and best of all, time with Mom!

Mom and our mutual friend Diane will be joining us this year for the conference and I cannot wait to spend time with these two wonderful ladies! I know that Mom will come with more empty luggage space than full (so that she can tote all her new purchases home) and that Diane will be sure to sport a dragonfly as part of every ensemble.

I am most excited for this year's Gala dinner hosted on Sunday evening. This year they asked that you pick a member of the knitteratti you admire to sit with during the dinner. Broke Knitter is SUPER EXCITED to be sitting with her fave, Melissa Leapman, at this year's Gala. What can be better for the blogger obsessed with cables to be sitting with the Cable Master herself!

Who else is registered for the conference? Please post and tell me what you are most looking forward to! Anyone else registered to sit with Melissa Leapman?

Until Next Time,
Broke Knitter

Happy Fall!

Now that Labor Day Weekend has ended it is officially the beginning of fall! Fall is by far the best season of the year! You have:

1.Broke Knitter's Birthday (the best celebration of the year)
2. Octoberfest a.k.a. the best beer season of the year!
3. Thanksgiving and the Macy's Day Parade
4. Halloween
5. Broke Knitter and her bf are going to Disney World to celebrate their 6 year anniversary!

As you can see, I have a lot to look forward to in these coming months. While I am very excited about all of these upcoming events, ESPECIALLY my trip to Disney World, I realize that I don't have much time before the holidays arrive and so too do the expectations for hand made Christmas presents.

Crunch time! Does anybody have good advice for getting Christmas presents done in these tight and busy months?

Strongest Woman in the World

Working in higher education development there are always odds and ends tasks you are asked to help with. Today I was asked to help with new student move-in at one of our residence halls. After a few hours of schlepping suitcases and pushing big bins from cars to the buildings I feel as though I have arms of steel!

My biceps are bulging! I am a little nervous to pick up my knitting needles tonight in fear of knitting so quickly and violently that my brain will not be able to keep up! Of course I kid, but seriously, when did it become to the task of a tiny little girl (a.k.a. me) and a colleague who is recovering from a broken foot!

Oh well....All's well that ends well.
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
