Chilly Spring Day
It’s a bit chilly today for a May day, but I love the weater a bit on the cool side so it’s alright with me!
I taught in Parsippany today – a 5 hour class for the Jersey Knitters on Fair Isle and Afterthought Heel & Toe Socks. Both went really well (except I forgot the finished sock prop!) and the group was so enthusiastic and so kind! What a nice day we all had – I love days when I feel I learn a bit as well as teaching a bit!
I returned home to a book order for Knit Picks catalog – a big one – which is also very nice. My early Mother’s Day Gift! And here’s a Mother’s Day Gift for all of you (no matter what your maternal status…)
Here’s a link to a Adobe Acrobat PDF file of a crocheted reticule pattern. I worked this up the other evening at Knitting Nation in Nyack and sent it on to Jane for her use in the shop. You can enjoy it, too – and use whatever yarn you want! I used Noro Dari, but you could use anything from a chenille to a ball of twine! It works up fast and makes a quick little gift – maybe something last minute for mom?
I’m at the point where I have to order more books. My shipment of 300 is almost gone (gasp) and I received it on Monday! Now, a bunch of those were previous orders that were waiting to be filled, but still, I never expected to need to reorder so quickly! I’m sure that to the real publishing world these numbers are almost comical, but to me they’re a bit astounding. My goal is to sell 2,000 because that will pay for health insurance – onward!
Amazon is carrying the book now, and I hope to be listed with BN.com soon, but if you want to order online order through me – I’ll ship faster and cheaper! I want to start putting together a list of yarn shops that would like to have book signings, so if you know of one that’s interested, let me know and I’ll see what I can work up. It looks as though I may have a trip in the works out to CA next Spring…
