Not Dead

It occurred to me that if I didn’t post something today, the emails inquiring about my well being would start coming.ย  I am well.ย  Sock camp was so much fun that I can’t believe it doesn’t have a mortality rate, but has left me pretty much bagged. Pictures and a report tomorrow. After I sleep. A lot.

  1. Glad to hear you’re alive & well! Looking forward to hearing about Sock Camp.

  2. Yay! Glad you’re home safe. Looking forward to your sock camp stories, but definitely after rest (and then coffee).

  3. YAY, I was starting to wonder. Good to know I can hold off on calling the RCMP.

  4. Good to know your absence is due to happiness! Can’t wait to see the photos and read the stories of sock camp!

  5. I’ve seen some pics from knitters websites. Looks like fun was had by all and I love the blanket.

  6. Hi Stephanie, I tried to email you about my MSF contribution so you could keep an up-to-date tally of contributions but it was returned. If you are still collecting info on contributions would love to send you the information.

  7. Good thing I don’t get charged for the number of times I check the blogsite! Pleased to hear everything is well. Sleep and relax well. Conquer the world after some sleep.

  8. Don’t know how you keep up your schedule. Is it permissible to take a blog holiday?

  9. Hooray! SO glad you had a great time! Wish I could have been there!~ Some day…. Rest up weary knitter!

  10. Yea! You’re back! I was just commenting to my co-worker this morning how you hadn’t blogged since March 31st and how I was a little bent out of shape. Now I feel bad about feeling that way after reading how exhausted you are. Rest up. I look forward (a lot) to your next entry. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Are you SURE it doesn’t have a mortality rate? Who knows how many spouses have passed out due to sheer volume of yarn brought home??

  12. Thought of you last evening whilst stranded for 6+ hrs at Reagan National. You beat me home and probably would have finished the sock I got a good start on… A man took my picture with my MacBook open in front of my knitting hands-he thought it was an interesting contrast I assume!
    Rest and recharge!

  13. Yay – knew you were alive (I’ve seen others’ photos), but wondered about the server.

  14. whew! i was just about to post “oh harlot, wherefore art thou?” glad to hear you are still in existence!

  15. Thanks for the “still alive” post. We were beginning to worry. ๐Ÿ™‚ Amusingly enough, a friend of mine who rarely uses her LJ blog will periodically put up a brief “not dead” post. You’re in fine company.

  16. I’ll admit, I was starting to worry. If nothing else, allow me to revive you by saying that the reissue of “Principles of Knitting” is available for pre-order on and If that doesn’t light your fire, nothing will!

  17. Thank goodness! I was starting to worry. I love, love, love reading your blog. I’m glad you had a great time at sock camp. Someday, I’m going to be able to go too. When the kids are a bit older.

  18. See how much we care! We were worried. Sleep, sleep some more, then tell us all about the Sock Summit we wished we could have attended with you!!

  19. Glad to hear everything went well — can’t wait to hear about it! (After your sleepfest, of course. First things first.)

  20. Glad you checked in with The Blog! We were getting worried. ๐Ÿ™‚ Soon as you are rested, I’ll be delighted to hear all about the fun.

  21. Just figured you were working on Sock Summit. Stay healthy! Thanks for thinking of us.

  22. Starting to wonder what happened. Thanks for the update. Sleep tight don’t let the bed bugs bite.

  23. You are such a caring Harlot. Thanks for checking in. I was beginning to wonder where you were.

  24. That’s about what I figured. I was just waiting patiently for the chance to attend Sock Camp vicariously…
    Pleased to hear that it will be soon.
    You rest up now…

  25. Per Mark Twain: rumors of your death have been greatly exaggerated? Glad to hear you didn’t die of sock bliss!

  26. I took a sock class from someone who got to go last year at my LYS! She said it was sock knitting heaven(a loose condensed paraphrase)….
    Get some sleep, recover a bit, then share!!!!
    That is my dream/goal to make it to one myself…

  27. Missed you. Do put your feet up and rest. Rejuvenate with the family and Joe’s morning Java. I did hope there had not been the odd mis-adventure…

  28. There are so many of us who knit vicarously through you and YES, we miss you when you go off the radar for awhile. Those green socks are lovely, but I tune in to see your latest yarn and knit porn. It brightens my day.

  29. Oh I love the knitting community! Only we could be that excited about sock camp and start to be concerned to Stephanie’s whereabouts! Good to have ya back! Did miss the regular blogs ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Good Harlotta. We do worry about you. My friend Liz was incredibly delighted to be able to actually check your blog status with her new iPhone from OUR weekly knit night. “The Harlot blogged!!”. I want you to remember how excited her 25 year old self (and I) are about these things when you are talking to people you are related to about something YOU find important and they look at you like they hear Charlie Brown’s
    I would also like to remind you that my budget has Maryland Sheep and Wool coming up. It is currently feeling a Harlot inspired Tulip Cardigan dent. I hope I can stop at just one.

  31. Only you could have people excited to hear all about sock camp. And this one time at sock camp…

  32. Thank you for posting, because I am really glad you are not dead.
    When you have recovered from Sock Camp, I look forward to hearing all about it (or whatever else you care to write about – I love your posts).

  33. Your absence was definitely felt — I’ve been much gloomier that last couple of days. But I’m glad to hear you were having a good time. Sweet Dreams.

  34. Whew! The police laughed at me when I called in a missing blogger report. Apparently you have to wait a week.

  35. Perhaps, in future you should put up one line posts that say sock camp. You might even get a friend to do it for you.
    Sleep well.

  36. SO glad to hear that it’s not time to knit a decorative cozy for your headstone. Looking forward to your sock camp report once you back among the rested!

  37. Hooray! You’re back!!! I was starting to worry that you had abandoned us. ๐Ÿ˜› Looking forward to seeing your pics and hearing about Sock Camp. (Oh, and I’ve been reading your blog for ages, but this is my first posting. See what happens when you vanish for a week? LOL)

  38. Thank God Harlot! I was worried about you! I figured sock camp took it out of ya, but my goodness….I was beginning to yell profusely at my computer, with only cold computer glow gazing back at me! Looking forward to pics from sock camp.

  39. You know your blog is loved when you get 69 comments (or more) for an entry that basically says, “I’m not dead; stay tuned”!
    From the comments, I would say that you are loved as well.

  40. Totally off topic! In the April 11 issue of New York magazine, there’s a knit-related quote from Daniel Radcliffe (you know, Harry Potter) that I found amusing.
    He was asked, “Do you have any secret hobbies, like knitting?”
    He answered, “I love writing, bands, reading-nothing as dark and fetishized as knitting.”
    I think he’s a closet knitter in denial.

  41. So glad to hear all is well, and that you are only needing to recover from a fun sock camp!
    Sleep Well!

  42. Hi!! I had actually started thinking that maybe something had happened a sock camp!! Glad you’re back and that everything went right. I was just reading my copy of Meditations for women who knit too much and have just realised I do have a yarn consumption problem. I was reading that bit that says you can always give some yarn to a friend just to make her feel good and thought of my last b-day when my husband asked me what I wanted. I said: “some wool would be nice” and he said no because I already had too much. At the moment I thought: “Don’t you know how much I’d appreciate that??” Now I think: should I seek professional help?? No!! I love my stash, the one my husband has seen and the one I have hidden under my winter coats. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Hey, looking at those delicious green sox, I just thought of a name for a sock pattern: Fancy Footwork! Or has it been done already? I think I spend half my life reinventing the wheel.

  44. This is why I love Yellow Springs, OH. Yarn bombings everywhere (trees, benches, stop signs..) and it’s almost like the city asked them to be put there
