Girls Night Out presents NYT-bestselling author Kate Jacobs!

Join us for a very special Girls Night Out author event with Kate Jacobs, author of the New York Times-bestseller The Friday Night Knitting Club (recently optioned to be a movie starring Julia Roberts). We are celebrating the release of Comfort Food, Kate’s new, very delicious novel about a TV celebrity cooking-show host whose life is about to be turned upside down. You don’t want to miss this great night of wine, tasty treats and chick lit!

Thursday. May 15. 7:30 p.m., Eastwood
I’m not sure if I’m going to get to go or not (technically I’m scheduled to work but Rob mentioned maybe letting me go) but if you’re going to be there drop me a note and let me know!

Yay Lansing!

Oh yes, tonight was the first annual Stitch n’ Pitch with ThreadBear and the Lansing Lugnuts. True, it was chilly, and yeah it was a little wet at times, but much fun was had by most if not all of us who braved the elements. When I left after the 7th inning stretch the Luggies were up by 8 so clearly the knitter mojo was in the air and helped the boys kick some Dayton Dragon ass. 🙂

Speaking of ass… Big Lug shook his for us.
Shake what ya mama gave ya!

A bunch of our knitters shook what their mama’s gave them too when it was time to do the YMCA.
Knitters rock Oldsmobile Park!

More knitters in action… this time stitching and cheering on the Lugs.
Yay knitters!

There are only so many places I can wear my Lugnuts hat without people looking at me like well… like I’m nuts. 🙂 Oh and I’ve totally fallen in love with the wonderfulness that is a worsted weight sock… Sooo much quicker! I knit several inches tonight before my fingers got too cold to keep a decent gauge going. LOL

In all… I had a blast and hope everyone else who was there did too!

Go Nuts!
