I was telling about the process of making the book and all of the work that goes into it.

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

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.

This morning a rather large package was dropped on my front porch by FedEX, and when I opened the box I found a huge poster of…. me.

It’s for my book, It Girl Knits. I will be taking it around to all of the events, book signings, and such. I feel like I have Cushlash (some of you may know this line from Jerry Maguire). or perhaps I should say, I have Besslash. It’s a condition that happens when you see yourself in too many magazines, on too many posters, and in just too many publicity adverts.

Just kidding – I was, however, rather surprised at how big the poster was. I had expected it to be a just a tad smaller. Not that I’m complaining!

The Knitting Basket in Richmond will be hosting a book signing for my book on October 25th. The Knitting Basket is a great yarn shop run by very nice people. You should come by and see us.

Some pics of the photo shoot for It Girl Knits:

This is the photographer, Dan Howell. He did an excellent job of making the garments and all of us look great. He sometimes had to roll around on the ground to get the perfect shot. This shot was taken late in the day, so Jessica and I were pretty cold. It was late October and very drizzly, too.

Jessica is wearing the Flirty Short Skirt, and I’m wearing the Baby Doll Top, both of which are from the book. The Flirty Short Skirt is made with South West Trading Company’s Bamboo, and it is unbelievably soft and drapey. I can’t wait for you to see it. The Baby Doll Top is also featured on the cover of the book.
