Sweet!

Hi Knitters,
Notice anything new on my bookshelf?
I received a sweet little package late last week straight from Artisan Books, my publisher. When I opened it up I found a brand-spanking-new copy of my next book, Itty-Bitty Toys. That is a moment in time, every time. It feels so good to hold years of hard work all bundled up in a beautiful book. It is difficult to describe.

I love Itty-Bitty Toys and I hope you will, too. The book is being released on November 3rd, 2009.

More to come on the toy projects inside the book and upcoming tour dates soon, very soon!
best, susie

Congratulations Susan,
I cannot imagine what this must feel like! Holding your very own copy of a book that you've 'made' all by yourself!! This is more than wonderful, I can't wait to see everything inside (the book).
Cheers!

Congratulations Susan!
I cannot imagine what it feels like to hold a copy of your very own book, a book you 'made' all yourself. It is even more wonderful imagining what's inside the covers!
Cheers!
