So I was in my LYS the other day, and the owner says to me, “Alison, I’m reading a book called Yarn Harlot. I think, my dear, that you’re getting close to being one!”
I couldn’t stop laughing, quite frankly. First, being called a harlot any day of the week just REEKS of nostalgia! But besides that, I’m an Orthodox Jew. And on the right wing side of it, too, so being called a harlot when you’re covered from head to toe, including thick black stockings, is nothing short of hysterical.
I get such funky looks from my fellow knitters when I venture out to the store. I think they think I’m Muslim because of the scarves I usually wear on my head, but Ellen Goldfarb is the owner of the place, and she’s a former New Yorker who grew up in Queens, so she knew right away.
Yarn harlot … hee hee … perhaps I should embroider it on my knitting bag or onto a pillow??? :roflhard: :roflhard:
By the way, just wanted to tell all of you what a wonderful little knitting community this is. You’ve all been great, and there’s nothing like hanging out with a bunch of enablers to fuel your addiction!
