Knitting Knirvana

Hi Knitters,
This is my friend, Suzanne. She came to my book signing at Knitty City in NYC last March. She is so much fun and although I felt like I have known her online there is nothing better than to get to be with someone in person. We had so much fun at that event.

Suzanne is a fabulous and talented knitter. She is the moderator for the Itty-Bitty Knits group on Ravelry. I feel so lucky to have such a good person helping to oversee this smart group of charitable and supportive knitters. She does an excellent job.

Suzanne had an exciting week. An article she wrote got picked up by Yahoo News and it is worth a read. She is talking about her time living in New York as a social worker and how 9/11 effected her and her work and how this tragic event continues to play a part in her life today. I was touched to see that in the article she talks about her journey back to NYC to see an author at a book signing. That photo of us together is of that day she describes in her writing.

Next, Suzanne started a video podcast on her blog. Click here to go to her blog.

You can watch her podcast right on her blog or you can hop over to youtube to watch it, which is what I did so I could watch full screen.

I just had to share the news about Suzanne, Knitting Knirvana, she is a good one to watch and follow. I can't wait to see what she does next.
best, susie
