Zzzz (The buzz kind, not the sleeping kind)2
This blog has lain dormant for long enough! It’s time to get postin’, dontcha think?
Advance copies of Get Hooked are being sent out, and I’m super excited to see that bloggers like it! MK Carroll, who designed the Sushi Roll Pillow in the book but hadn’t seen the rest of it until she got her copy in the mail, wrote a review on her blog. And crochet teacher/designer Amy O’Neill Houck just wrote a great review on her blog, The Hook and I. (Amy also posted a photo of me the day I saw the whole book for the first time. I don’t have a comb-over in real life. Really.)
I’m preparing to do my first signing of the book at The National NeedleArts Association trade show next weekend in Indianapolis. It’s a trade-only show, but if your local yarn store owner is going, tell them to drop by and say hi and get a free book!
I can’t believe the book won’t be available for another couple of months. But I’m so excited to start showing it off!
We just borrowed these books from our public library and my mom and I sat down and each crocheted our own “fingerless street mitts”.
These patterns are great! We will be adding the “Get Hooked” and “Get Hooked Again” books to our pattern library.
Thanks for all you do.
