    CIBC Run For The Cure - Donate Today!On Sunday, October 1st, Knitgrrl Shannon Okey and I will be kicking off our two-week-long Monsters of Teen Craft Book Tour by participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure in Toronto, Ontario, as members of Team Knitty. The talented women of have been raising money to fight breast cancer for the last couple of years, and I’m thrilled and excited to join their team and to represent, yo.

    When crocheters and knitters band together good stuff happens. The event will be taking place in 51 communities across Canada, and money raised will go to fund breast cancer research, education and awareness programs. I’ve set myself a lofty goal, and I hope you’ll help me reach it. So please visit my secure donation page and give as little or as much as you can to help fight this disease, and to foster some love with our two-needled friends. (Donations are in Canadian dollars, so for all you Americans, your dollar goes further! Canadian residents will get a tax receipt by e-mail – just request it when you fill out the donation form.)

    If you prefer to donate by check (in Canadian dollars), please send one payable to “Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation” to this address:
    Crochet me Magazine
    4438 W. 10th Avenue
    Vancouver, BC
    V6R 4R8

    And as I said, this important event will kick off our book tour. Shannon and I will be traveling by rail and signing copies of our respective books in cities from Toronto to Washington, DC. I’ll share more concrete details in coming weeks!

    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!
