September, 2007: Both the Reno Gazette Journal and Sierra Sun ran articles about how Jimmy taught celebrities to knit at a pre-Emmys party! It shows Hal Sparks, the host of talk soup, knitting on a scarf to be auctioned off for charity. He was one of the many extremely nice celebrities we met that agreed to give knitting a try for charity.
Both articles mention the photo shows Laura (aka Jimmy) teaching Hal Sparks to knit -- pretty funny since it is really Suss Cousins in the back of the photo, not Jimmy! Suss came down and spent some time with us at the Emmy party -- she is such a cool, generous, and fun person! We are really lucky to have met her!
