During our lunch break at Old Sturbridge Village's Oliver Wight Tavern on Saturday, Lori asked me "Does that person look familiar?" I'm not very good with names and faces, so even after taking a peak, I was of no help.
"I think it's a famous knitware designer."
Still, no help from me.
After the other table finished lunch and left, it came to her. "That was Amy Herzog!"
Disappointed that I was of no help on the identification portion of this quest, I offered to help when we spotted Amy again on our trek back to our classroom. I simply approached her and asked, "Are you Amy?" She smiled and we chatted for a bit. I asked for a picture and Amy graciously agreed. She was there with friends and family having a normal day.

I laughed because one of the reasons I didn't think it was Amy (aside from the aforementioned inability to recognize people like that) was the fact that she wasn't wearing anything handknit. I know, neither were we.
Thanks Amy for being a great sport and for all your great designs. Keep up the great work. Maybe you'll take a Crafts at Close Range class with us next time. We're thinking about Stone Wall Buiding...
