If there was ever any question about that, it was solidified yesterday. My friends are so much better than I deserve.
Yesterday, they took me to Threadbear in Lansing to take classes on sock knitting with none other than Cookie A.. That's right Cookie A., of the famed "Monkey", "Pomotomus" socks on Knitty.com and many others. As if knitting her would not have been awesome enough, she was kind enough to pose for pictures with us.
Here are S. and i posing with her.
I was able to take a picture of her at a calmer point in the day.

This is some gorgeous lace weight, 100% Bamboo fiber. I ordered from Patternworks.
I ordered this skein from the Loopy Ewe, which is the only place I've seen it available. That's right folks, The infamous "Heritage" - Cascade Yarn's Hand Painted Sock Yarn. The colors I chose are fairly muted, but I love them and can't wait to knit it up. It's so soft and smooshy against the skin.

You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
