I met Cookie A. yes, I am that much of a nerd that I am bragging about my celebrity encounter. celebrity for her sock knitting patterns.
she even gave me a little bit of yarn and said that she would be honored to have a square in my blanket. (warm fuzzies)
so, yes, I am a nerd. however, if I am going to think a person is really cool, it may as well be an independent and creative woman whose artistic ability brings her fame.
