When Interweave said they were sending an advance copy, I figured it would be not-quite-finished, like page proofs stapled together or something. But it is a real, finished copy, fresh from the warehouse or wherever they store books that are about to be released.
I'm so excited I don't know what to do.
So let's plan some road trips.
My loyal blog-readers, who have thrust me to the forefront of the dog-eat-dog world of yarn: Are there any of you out there who own yarn shops or work at yarn shops or are pals with yarn shop owners or belong to a knitting guild that would like to host a book-signing and/or a workshop or maybe even a BBF "tupperware" party/book signing (i.e. I bring a bunch of Black Bunny yarn and you buy it, and I sign your books)?
I'm willing to travel anywhere I can get via car within a few hours. [Edited to say: I live outside Philadelphia.] If you buy me a train ticket, I'll happily come farther. I'm pondering what kind of workshops I might do and am open to suggestion on that too (except I won't teach you how to dye yarn like I do -- a gal's gotta keep some trade secrets).
Email me at goknitinyourhat &^%%A*T&% att DAHT net (you know what to do) -- or use the contact button somewhere over on the right -- and we'll talk.
