Every so often, I decide that I love a blog enough that I will read the complete archives. I did it with Mimi Smartypants, and I did it with Miss Minimalist, and I’d do it for WhiteHotTruth if I hadn’t been reading her from the get-go. These days I’m working my way through the copious archives of the Yarn Harlot, aka Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I’m up to 2004, which is about the time that I had an article published in Knitty. This one.
So I’m reading along, enjoying her harlotry, when she casually mentions that a new Knitty is up, and how good the articles are. And then comes the thunderbolt:
The one about colour should be required reading, and the advice given in the short row shoulder one is pretty darned good too.
Yah – that’s my article. I had to click the link to be sure.
“Required reading!” Can you believe it?? Stephanie Pearl-McPhee! I mean, she’s brilliant and she’s funny and she has the best name in the world, and… she liked my article.
Pardon me while I grin for a very long time.
And… six years late… Thank you, Stephanie!
