On the 7th I had a book signing at Ewe Knit KitsĀ  in Virginia Beach, VA. This is a very nice shop with really nice people and a great selection of yarns. A lot of people came. I think that there were almost more people to this one than some of the other ones. Bobbi, the owner is very nice and accommodating. The set-up she had for me to display my trunk show was huge, and there was plenty of room for knitters to look at everything. My hand began to hurt after a while from all of the signing: )

These are photos of the event:

In this one I was signing a book for this lady and her daughter while they looked through my pattern book.

In between signing books I taught these two ladies, Wanda and her friend how to do magic loop. Wanda is a crochet designer, and she’s learning to knit.

I suggested she learn magic loop instead of using double pointed needles.

They were pretty excited about learning magic loop…

They all seemed to really like the boots…

This is what part of the display looked like.

Check out my new sock pattern called Vortical. It’s available on Knotions, Winter ’08 and features Socks That Rock Superwash sock yarn, plus instructions for making the socks in white Panda Cotton and painting them with Jacquard Dyes.

I first made Vortical in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock yarn, and I love the way the solid color shows off the 2 yarn over lace stitches – a different one for each leg and they both wrap around the leg!

Don’t be afraid to substitute your favorite yarn when you make Vortical.

My aunts, Jennifer and Heather came to the Fashion show. Aunt Heather drove two hours to get there and Aunt Jennifer came an hour and a half to see both me and my work in the show, and they stayed from 1:00 – 8:00. They both most definitely won the Best Aunt Award: ) I was really glad they were able to make it to the show.

Blessing Leji interviewed me for Teen News Now, and this was taken of me on my way back to the dressing rooms after talking to my aunts. Teen News Now is a television show that is produced and hosted by teens, and it airs in the Hampton Roads to North Carolina area.
