    I can't come. My car window was smashed open and all my knitting was stolen. I wanted to show off my shawl :'(

      Hey Melissa, we really missed you tonight. So sorry about the theft. I'd like to punch the guy!

      Mike, I'm so sad I missed your last appearance. Have fun in Arizona. And yes, I would also like to punch the guy or at least yell at him for destroying my car door and taking all my knitting things... Never leave all your knitting needles in one bag...

    I don't have a book recommendation, but if anyone is a member of Living Social they are running a deal on Aroma's right now.
