Three debuts.

We've had three big events this week, so let me share this abbreviated version of The Week in Pictures with you. First and foremost:

Kristin and Greg's sweet baby boy, Cameron Anthony, was born at 12:42 Monday morning. He weighed 8 lbs, 5 oz., and is 21 1/2" long. Everybody is doing great, at least the last I heard! This is their first baby, so I'm sure they left the hospital with that "Oh my gosh, what now!" feeling, but by this weekend, they have surely mastered the mysteries of the First Poop and the subsequent First Bath.

Our second big, unexpected event was a pop-in visit from world-famous author Maggie Sefton:

Maggie has written five best-selling knitting-related mysteries, including "Knit One, Kill Two." She was in town to visit the bookstores and promote her newest book, "Dyer Consequences." Rest assured, Loops will soon be stocking the entire Maggie line. We had a great visit - Maggie was so full of energy, and took time to talk to Emily (Tempted Stacy's daughter) about a writing career. BTW thanks, Stacy, for taking the pics! Gotta get the batteries changed on my camera.

And last but clearly not least, our debut at Woodward Park for the Tulsa version of WorldWide Knit in Public Day was a big success!

This was the scene around 10am, when it was just beginning to fill up. It got much more crowded as the morning wore on. The gals from Lowder Farms showed up with their spinning wheels, and I counted SEVERAL knitters of the male persuasion in the crowd - we always like to see that, guys. It became so crowded, in fact, that we were visited by the Sheriff, who required us to purchase a permit. My daughter, who had nicely agreed to come and hold up the WWKiP Sign, panicked at the sight of the Sheriff: "Mom, I can't get arrested!" I explained that they don't usually haul you down to the pokey for knitting - but still, she developed a severe case of hiccups that did not subside until I handed over my $100 check for the permit and the sheriff told us we were free to go and stitch.

Oh, what we endure for our craft.

First, welcome to little Cameron!

Next, are Maggie's books available as audio books? I'm seriously LOVIN' audio books ... knit and "read" at the same time. The whole "two birds with one stone" thing!

Lastly ... you mean to tell me with all the law-breaking going on around this city a sheriff was confronting a group of knitters?!?! Amazing. Wonder what will happen when we start knitting in bars?! Maybe this is a PR opportunity?

I take it that the sheriff was NOT a knitter, nor married to one. It's all about making memories!! Wish I lived closer. Ruth Ann

What the H?!! Why in the world would you need a permit? What kind of a permit? This is outrageous, in my honest opinion. Where in the constitution does it say that you are required to have a permit to meet in a PUBLIC park?

Honestly, this makes me very angry.

You have GOT to be kidding! seriously, un*******believable.
I'm sorry I missed this event, didn't find out until late...

Gee... I'm just thinking about all those days and nights spent hanging out in that park back in the late 60s, and truth is knitting would've been much healthier :^) and and and.

Cameron is a beautiful baby boy, congrats to his peeps.
