A quick word about knitting...

OK, so I don't have any "show & tells" as I am working feverishly on a huge, super secret project proposal. I do, however, have exciting news about a book release. Last December I pre-ordered "Spud & Chloe On the Farm" by Susan B. Anderson. The exciting news is that the books, (I ordered two), are shipping on March 25th. More importantly, Susan posted samples of the 13 patterns on Ravelry today and OH MY GOODNESS, the cute just keeps getting better.

I have all of Susan B. Anderson's books & love each and every one. The first pattern I ever saw was the "Upsidedown Daisy Hat" from "Itty Bitty Hats". It was pictured in an article in a knitting magazine. When I saw the article I HAD to have the book and went that day during lunch to the bookstore to get it. I have since added the other two books to my library, ("Itty Bitty Nursery" & "Itty Bitty Toys"). Soon, for the time being anyway, my collection will be complete with the addition of the Spud & Chloe book.

Since I don't have any knitting or yarn to show I will post a Susan Anderson "fan photo". The photo was posted on this blog before, under the heading "this is how we knit in the south". It was taken in May 2009 by me and is REAL. I really WAS floating around perusing the book and knitting while sipping on my Diet Coke, ha,ha. The float is huge and so danger of losing the book or knitting "overboard" is minimal. Plus, when it's hot you have to improvise.

First parade rolls tomorrow night and it's going to be warm. FUN! I may just take a video of two.
