Stitches Midwest Book Debut and Other Fun

August 20

I’m just now finding time to take a breath after Stitches Midwest last weekend. What a whirlwind! My book, Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues made its debut Thursday night. The books were literally hot off the press! It was a thrill for me to see the stacks of my book in the Cooperative Press booth along with so many titles I’ve admired over the years. Notice the boxes of cookies – dessert seems to be a good lure for the knitting public!

During the weekend I signed autographs, along with my friend Stephannie Tallent. She was signing her fantastic book California Revival Knits.

 

Steph and I are each others’ biggest supporters!

The other exciting news from Stitches Midwest was my trunk show in the Foofaraw booth. I’m grateful to Lindsay Gates for giving me a wonderful opportunity to showcase some of the scarves from my book! We paired each scarf with one of the beautiful Foofaraw shawl sticks. I was amazed at the range of colors and materials Lindsay uses in making these. Everyone who came into her booth found exactly the right color and texture for their projects.

Here we found just the right sticks to style the “Cables & Knots” and “Diagonal Ribs & Little Fountains Lace” patterns from my book.

I thought the scarves (and here, the wrap from the book too) and Lindsay’s sticks were a marriage made in heaven!
