Woolbearers report

I can't believe I forgot to take my camera to Woolbearers yesterday! What a great shop. It's huge: Sabra, one of the incredibly nice people who work there, told me that the location used to be a pharmacy, and it's a great big space full of great yarns: Rowan, Jo Sharp, Classic Elite, Manos, Mountain Colors, and so many more, including Woolbearers' own handpaints. I met lots of wonderful customers and blogreaders (hi, Becky!) and some Ravelry-pals, and we sold all the books, AND they were even having a Super Bowl Sunday sale. A huge thanks to Myra for inviting me! (I will confess to being a little nervous when I realized I parked right next to Nancy the bail bondswoman -- would it be an omen? -- but I can assure you that Nancy's services were in no way needed by any of the knitting crowd.)

Right now, I'm in the process of scheduling visits to Twist in the New Hope area, and Woolgathering in Kennett Square. I'll be at Prairie Fiber Arts (IL) hopefully the weekend of April 18 (Franklin -- you need to email me, hon) and I'll be at Finely A Knitting Party in Swarthmore, PA on May 17th. If you live within driving distance of Philadelphia and want me to come sign books, please email me using the contact bar over to the right. (I'll come farther if you're willing to pony up a plane ticket...)

Hey, I will pony up for a plane ticket to New Hope. Might even throw in lunch to sweeten the deal.

Hell...I'm in for half the cost of that plane ticket. Tell Deb at Twist she doesn't have to shell out a penny for airfare.

Golly...it's been probably a year since I've been into Twist...I need to get back there soon.

I'm excited about diving into the book and its patterns. Thanks for the signing and the shout out!
