One Sheep for Amy Singer

So yesterday I went and met Amy Singer at Purlescence Yarns in Sunnyvale for her No Sheep For You book signing. It was a nice event, we even got time to hang out with her in the shop. The best part I think was getting to take her to Tapioca Express to get some boba. No, wait, I'm wrong. The BEST part? Easily this (baw chicka baw baw): Yes, Hannah, you really are putting on THE costume again. Oh yeah baby, it's sheep time! After dressing in the back of the store, she headed into the back to say hello to Amy: (Tell me Amy didn't turn to Emy and say "What the hell, who let the sheep in?!") (Oh, and check out Jeni taking pics with her sexy iPhone to my right!) As with many Hannah events, there was much laughter that ensued. There was even a sheep hugging by the sheep free knitter: I eventually remembered that I was there for a book signing, so I got my book signed and got my picture taken with Amy: (I swear it's a bad angle, I'm much thinner in real life.)

Nathania was having a good time playing with my new Canon SD800 is camera, she snapped this deer-in-the-headlights pic of Amy:

But I avenged Amy's bad pic with a goofy one of my own, caught when I bobbled the camera trying to take a pic of Nathania:

The awesome end to my day? Winning some Claudia Hand Painted Linen Yarn in the raffle drawing:

Yay free stuff! (That pic is the reason this post has been on ice for a week, it is now liberated. Woot.)

Great day over all. I finished my day off with some time at a luau at another Bobaknitter's house that was loads of fun. But that requires more pics to be uploaded, so maybe I will do that tomorrow!
