OK, so I am putting this out earlier than I thought because I wanted people to know about the events that are comming up. I know people need advance warning because I know people in Boston will want to go. Also… last minute additions Shannon Okey will be at Mind’s eye on Satyrday the 7th and Stitchy McYarnpants will be at the Porter Square Book Shop on Oct 13th. Who knew having a topical show would require so many announcments.
That being said, the interview I did with Jared has been one of the most wonderful things I have done so far. He is truely an interesting and thoughtful knitter and was very engaging. Not to mention how astonsihingly beautiful it was in the park that day.
Lot’s of good stuff to come in the near future, I have my review copy of Knitting with Balls and will bring it ot the KGB group tonight for a little discussion. I’ll let you guys know more next week.
