Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Winter 2008 TNNA

Closely Knit is here!  Well, the advance copies anyway.  It will be available to the public February 20th.  I just got back from California, where we released it at TNNA.  It was amazing, I can't even begin to tell you all the positive feedback I received.  The best compliment of all came from Erika Knight, who gave the book a little squeeze as she said how much she loved the sentiment behind it.

The lace top from the Sisters chapter appeared in the fashion show on Thursday night.  It was unbelievable to be represented alongside so many other talented designers

Friday morning I spent time in the F & W booth, showing off Closely Knit.  It was great to be able to talk with everyone who stopped by.  It was genuinely well received!

Daphne and Iain's booth looked fantastic, as usual.  They featured a few of the projects from Closely Knit in their booth - thanks guys!

Saturday we got to spend the day with Narumi Ogawa.  She is the cutest thing ever, and look at what she makes!

Note: I look like a freakish giant next to these two petite girls! Special thanks to my editor, Jessica Gordon, for making it such a fun weekend.
