last stop on the blogger tour

Ashley was on a vacation to the East Coast and managed to meet up with a few bloggers in various cities (maybe more than the three I link in this post, I don’t know); naturally she saved the best for last!

365.68

Megan had mentioned how tall Ashley is, but I still wasn’t fully prepared for her height. I am a shrimp compared with her, and I was even wearing my “tall” boots! She helpfully crouched down for this photo.

She’s just as delightful as she is on her blog–and hanging out with her was just like seeing an old friend again. I let her in on New York’s best kept secret–which apparently isn’t a secret at all, based on the length of the line to get in. It’s the burger joint in the lobby of Le Parker Meridian; the burgers are to die for, making the line and the fight for a table worth it.

Ashley and I showed each other the socks currently on our needles–mine a “top-secret” pair that I’m giving to a friend and might further develop into a pattern worth submitting, hers some pink and white self-striping Jaywalkers. Hopefully next time we’ll have more time to hang out and can actually knit together. Our lunch yesterday was perfectly delightful, and put me in the best mood for the day–anticipation before, basking in the happy times for the afternoon.

    Wow, you guys look a lot happier in your “look who I met” photo! Of course, you aren’t standing in front of a closed Loop in a March blizzard, either. Next time, we should ALL get together–KnitBlogCon, anyone?

    Yay so fun! I wish I had longer in NYC. KnitBlogCon! KnitBlogCon! (Although isn’t that going to be what the Harlot’s thing on the 22nd is?)

    Yes, next to Ashley’s towering awesomeness, I felt like a squat little troll clomping around gracelessly. Not that it detracted from the visit, of course (at least not for me — perhaps spending time with a clomping troll is less enjoyable for the other party).

    Glad the two of you had fun!

    Glad the two of you had fun! Now it’s my turn for a Minty meetup again!

    Oh fun! and look, she is wearing the scarf! Meeting bloggers is the coolest! :) Yeah, so I can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!
