Seattle Bound!

Hi, Knitters,
First, the winner of 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet and Felt by Kristin Nicholas is....  soyknits (rav id) or Stephanie! Congratulations! I've contacted Stephanie on Ravelry. Thank you to everyone for entering. I'll have another giveaway very soon.

Today is a big day. My new book, Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys, has changed over from pre-order to add to cart today on Amazon. And yes, there is a pull-tab on the front cover (it's really good!).

Next week after I return from Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle I'll do a blog post on the new book and get all of the projects up on Ravelry for you to check out. I'll keep you posted on that. You can see some of the projects in the video trailer linked above or on the Amazon book page.

One more thing I haven't had a chance to blog about yet is that I have three designs in the Spring 2013 issue of Knit Simple Magazine. I have a bunny hat, a girl's top, and a pair of stripey legwarmers. I will post more about this next week, as well.

I am excited for Seattle. The knitters out there have been very kind and welcoming. I have rides offered for everywhere I need to go, and a fun dinner planned with a bunch of Itty-Bitty Knitters at a fantastic local restaurant. I can't wait. 

Plus, I am speaking at the Seattle Knitters Guild meeting on Wednesday, April 3rd. Click here for information on the meeting. I am speaking at 7pm. My new book will be available at the meeting and I am there to sign the new book and any of my old books if you'd like.

I will have the Egg to Turtle bonus free pattern cards with me at the Guild meeting and also for my classes at VK Live! Unicorn Books (distributors of Opal Sock Yarn) has also sent some prizes for the Guild meeting attendees and also for my Opal Sock Yarn Bunny Class!

There is much fun and knitting in store.
Take care and I'll see you all on the flip side and some of you in Seattle!
best, susie
p.s. That's my husband and me biking on the beach in Hilton Head last week. We had a wonderful vacation filled with family, outdoor life and good eating. No worries, I'm not biking to Seattle.
