Egg to Bird Knitted by Alana Dakos!

Hi Knitters,
Oh my goodness! I am so excited about all of this. Alana Dakos, of the Never Not Knitting podcast and blog fame, interviewed me for her show last week and the show is now up. Click here for the show and show notes. This interview was a fun one to do, there is a lot of silliness.

She knitted up, in about a day or so, the Egg to Blue Bird reversible project from my new book, Itty-Bitty Toys, out of the spectacular organic cotton/wool blend, O-Wool. This is the yarn I used in the book as well. While you look at Alana's gorgeous photos of the reversible Egg to Blue Bird project in the book, you just have to listen to Alana's three-year-old daughter talking about her new toy. It is incredibly sweet and cute! Click to play this short audio of her daughter here:

Alana has the most amazing photography on her blog. You have to see it to believe it.
That is one cute little girl. Her eyes twinkle. I can feel her zest for life just by looking.
You can see that there is a tiny nest for the egg or bird to sit in as well.

To see the first project knit up from the book and then displayed in such a phenomenal way has been great fun for me. Further more, to give me permission to share all of your talent with my readers is a great favor.

Thank you, Alana!

best, susie
