Almost Famous

Almost Famous

I finally got to the bookstore this week and got a hold of a copy of Larissa‘s new book Knitalong. Longtime readers of my blog may remember that I knit some hats and my first socks ever as part of two knitalongs Larissa hosted to prepare for the book. Then she asked that I send the holly hat to be included in photos for the book. So I was hoping that there was at least a photo of it in there — for no other reason than to brag to my mom and mother-in-law. Well, now you have to hear me brag too because it looks like I have two photos in the book as well as two mentions. Hee hee, I’m almost famous. Okay, not really. But I have to say it’s a great book with that meathead pattern I get asked about so much as well as a bunch of other awesome stuff. So get your hands on a copy.

    Congrats! …Do I get my hat now? 😉 (I did win that hat, didn’t I? I’m not just making that up in my head, right?)

    Can I have your autograph? Oh, wait. I think I already have it. I wonder what it’ll sell for on eBay…

    Congrats! That hat is darling!!! How exciting to see your work in print. Sounds like a great book too. I knit so slowly though, I still have not finished projects from last winter!

    Fun stuff! I have an afghan square in the book too. It is the cream/brown square. I was quite pleased that my square made it into the book! 🙂
