Unprofessional

This week I went on my annual business trip (as a rule, medical librarians don't get out much), in Quebec city for a conference. Between the long drive and the packed days and the schmoozing "networking" that goes on at these things, much as I would have liked to, I didn't do much knitting. I think I managed about 8 rows on Tuesday night.

Hence the non-posting (sorry 'bout that). I was thinking about the blog-silence this morning, wondering what the heck I could possibly write about... and then something happened. Something knitterly and kinda cool and - to my sense - extremely bloggable.

The first pictures from St-Denis Yarns' Issue 3 were featured on Franklin Habit's blog (aka The Panopticon), and well... um... I'm in them.

My first impulse - once I got my heart to start beating again, of course (seeing one's likeness on a member of the Knitterati's blog is NOT something one expects while leisurely sipping their latté, you know?) was to FREAK the 'EFF out and tell EVERYBODY I've EVER met RIGHT NOW. Because, DUDES? That's ME!

But something made me hold back. I wondered... "Is this professional? Is this cool? Am I being a total dork?" I mean... it's not like I designed any of the patterns or anything. Creatively, I have precisely bupkis to do with any of the fabulous (and trust me, they're all fabulous) patterns in this issue. That's all due to the amazing talent of some pretty cool designers (Pam Allen, Jared Flood, Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Robin Melanson... and the list goes on), to say NOTHING of the hard work and determination of the divine Miss Véronik herself.

So I wondered... "What would Gisele Bündchen do?" I asked myself.

That's when I remembered something really, really important: I'M NOT Gisele Bündchen.

So DUDES! Go check it out! That's ME!!! :)

Happy Knitting, Everyone.

ps: I had no idea what the copyright/permission issues were, hence the links instead of actual images. When in doubt, I choose to err on the side of caution!

People tend to think it's ok to complain and not so ok to express the good things that happen to them! Why is that? Congratulations! You look fabulous as always!

Dude! You're a famous model! Lol. You look uh-mazing in the pictures, congratulations! I'd be getting one of those framed if it were me. And I might autograph it too, y'know, like a Marilyn Monroe pic. :D
I must see if I can get the magazine anywhere this side of the pond!
