I’ve got pictures from Virginia Fashion Week. I showed ten garments in the show as a designer, and I modeled for other designers.  I can’t show you the pics of my collection yet because I haven’t gotten them from the photographers yet, so until then…

Here are some pics of me and my friends back stage at the show.

Johnathan Kayne

I modeled for Johnathan Kayne. He was on Project Runway‘s 3rd season.

All of his dresses were a size 8, so Kayne had to pin the waist to fit me.

This is Kayne’s line of dresses.

Here I was modeling for another designer, Dee’s Couture.

We pinned up all of the book garments on these racks so that everyone could see them.

Here are some more pics from my October 27th book signing at the Knitting Basket…

Trunk Show

The Bay Window ladies helped us so much last summer, and they really turned out to see my finished book.

Signing Betty Lee's book

While Betty Lee looked at the boots, I signed her book.


Stacy is Betty Lee’s daughter, and she bought a copy of It Girl Knits to send to her friend in Australia who has a teenage daughter who is tall and thin.

The Bay Window

Here are some pics of another book signing at a cute little knitting shop in Irvington, VA called the Bay Window. It was a very successful day, and everyone had a good time. Once every month the Bay Window has a big birthday party for everyone who has a birthday in that month, and everyone brings food. The book signing was on this day and there were at one point in the day about 30 people there. It was pretty crazy…

It’s an adorable little place, and the owners, Candy and Mary are a lot of fun: )

A little girl named Hannah and her mother, Linda and her sister, Heather came all the way from Powhatan VA to buy my book. Linda saw the article about me in Vogue Knitting two years ago when they lived in Minneapolis. They moved to VA a little over a year ago, and when she recently came to the Knitting Basket they told her about the book signing.

The day of the signing, Linda brought Hannah just to buy one of my books and get it signed by me. I was very surprised and glad that they did. I hope they enjoy my book: ) They were so sweet and supportive and I am glad that I got to meet them.
