Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

The time and date are set. The management has been forewarned. So come one, come all, to the First (maybe only) Annual (bi-annual, monthly, or whatever) Texas (Or where ever) Knitter/Crocheter/Blogger/Crazy Persons Get Together!!! The title is a little long, but I wasn't making t-shirts anyway. So here's the deal. If you wanna come hang out and meet up and get to know your fellow bloggers, you're invited! If you wanna come just for food and laughs, you're invited! You don't have to be a knitter or a crocheter or a blogger. Just be aware you may be one or all of these things before you leave. Hell, you don't even have to live in Texas. It just makes the drive shorter.

DETAILS!!!!!

What: A bunch of loonies sitting around yakking, eating and possibly playing with yarn.

When: October 14, 2006 from 11 am until they throw our sorry asses out the door or we decide to go torment someone else.

Where: Opal Divine's Penn Field at 3601 S. Congress Ave. Ste. K100 in Austin, Texas.

Why: Because we can! And we want to! And if you guys leave me sitting there alone feeling stupid I shall show you the true meaning of Stalker! (Kidding. Maybe.)

How: Now here's the trick. I suggest car pooling and a designated driver. Seriously. Jesus loves me and if you get into an accident and die because of our get together, he will resurrect your ass for me so I can kick it all over this state and kill you again. Nuff said. We don't play that drunk driver game here. Dammit.

Now, it has come to my attention from the dear Tina that this date is also the same as the Lonestar Knitters Knit Out and Crochet at Border's Bookstore. Anyone for combining brunch at Opal Divine's then descending on Borders to digest, knit/crochet en mass to scare the (To coin a Harlot phrase) muggles with out hooks and pointy sticks? I love the idea myself.

Now, the brunch thing is not a concrete engagement. I'll be there at (or around, you guys know me, huh Dene) 11:00 am and plan to hang around for quite a few hours and letting people drift in and out as they see fit. Just come in, grab a seat, order food and chat. You don't have to stay just cuz I am. I had planned to head off to the Knit Out around 3 pm anyway just to see what I could see and meet who I could meet. Fun stuff, dudes. Plus, there are yarn stores in town to hit up. Seriously.

If you don't make it to the restaurant and you see me at the Knit Out? For the love of wool people, stop me and say hi. I don't bite unless you ask nicely or spill queso on your shirt. Then all bets are off. But I would love to meet as many as I can cuz I'm a total dork. Just ask Christina. She knows what a big dork I am.

Who's going? Who all do I get to meet? Who all do I get to see again? This is gonna rule.

YARGH! I now work on saturdays until 5pm, but I'll see about asking off or switching days with someone.

I am SO planning to be there! And I'm pretty sure a gaggle of other Dallas grrrrlz will be there, too.

kmkat said...

Um, ya got a teleporter I could use? Cuz the drive from Wisconsin is just a tad too long. Have fun without me!

Stacy said...

Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes.

Christina said...

Yup, you're a dork.

And I won't be there.

Unless of course kmkat figures out the teleporter thing. ;)

I don't think I can make it, since a friend decided to come and visit us at that time. But I'll be at Kid n Ewe in November!

P-) said...

When ever will Star Trek technology catch up with the world so that I could just beam over from New York?

Carol said...

Awww I miss all the good stuff. Takes lots of photos!

Kristin said...

can't wait! I'll be there!

Jo said...

Already got the weekend off (which is no mean feat!) when you first mentioned the vague possibility of a meet up...ABSOLUTELY will be there! With bells on!

Nanc said...

Hells yeah, baby! I am there. Count me in! I'll probably be riding w/ Chris (Skitter) and maybe some other knitgrrls, ta' boot.

I like the idea of hitting the KnitOut at 3pm. Although, I guess that depends on how many pints I got in me by then. (hee)
