Received My Wheelbag!

When I got home tonight, I havd a pleasant surprise waiting for wheel bag from The Bag Lady! She did a lovely job and I am very happy with my decision to go with denim, rather than a tapestry. It is very much my style. The bag is completely padded and fits the bag in its upright position. I will definitely feel much better when I travel with my wheel now that it will be protected.

The Rose Comes to the Office

Well, yesterday was a special Stitch and Bitch at work. Our "bitch emeritus" came for a visit, and I promised her I would bring in Miss Rose. I haven't received my bag yet, but I was very careful transporting her by wrapping her in a fleece blanket and strapping her into the front seat.

Everyone just loved it and I had so much fun showing her off! As I improve on how to spin, I can TOTALLY see myself doing demonstrations. Such fun!

Shameless Promotion

I am pleased to announce that a new book is out called Hooked: A Crocheter's Stash of Wit and Wisdom. The reason I am telling you all about this is because I have an essay published in this book. I am very excited about this! It tells the story of how I started crocheting and it is really in honor and memory of my gradmother. If you happen to pick it up and read my essay, I would love to hear your thoughts!
