. . . because I am one tired buckaroo after this past weekend.
Friday night, a party to launch my book. Big thanks to Kristine who let us have it at Knit Happens, and equally big thanks to Holly, Phyl, L-B, and the KOARC who helped me with the planning and execution of said event!
Saturday afternoon was my first book signing, also at Knit Happens.
Note the wristwarmers — they were knitted and beaded by Johanne to match my book cover — I’ll post a better photo tomorrow.
My good buddy L-B was there too, of course, and she brought me this that she knitted for me:
This is a banner/table runner/scarf knitted from ArtYarns Supermerino, in the colors of my book cover, with “Wendy Knits” knitted into it! Is that not the coolest?
My Mom and Dad came too:
I can pretty much guarantee that this past weekend was the most time my Dad has ever spent in a yarn shop in his life.
I met my mom’s friend Julie:
A couple of movie stars stopped by as well:
No, they aren’t really movie stars, they just look like they could be. That’s Jessica, one of my editors, and her friend Adam. They delivered this:
A box of Jacques Torres chocolates, a gift from my editors. Oh . . . my . . .
The King of All Remote Controls and I enjoyed them thoroughly.
L-B attempts to hide behind my book poster, but I think everyone pretty much knows now that she and I are not the same person.
And thank you to everyone who came by to say hello and have a book signed — it was great to meet you.
Lucy? Lucy stayed at home and relaxed.
Knitting talk tomorrow. Honest.
