  2. Diana says:

    I’ll be on the lookout for that book!

  3. Helen says:

    What Diana said!

  4. Karen B. says:

    The pictures add an interesting dimension to the list. And a book? You tease!

  5. Sonya says:

    I completely missed that one, but hey, sign me up for the pre-orders. I want some of that chic in hardcover form!

  6. Tracey says:

    Hmmmm….it’s about damn time. I want a signed copy. ;)

  7. Delica says:

    Knitting with bananafiber yarn? Wow – never heard of it. Now I kind of wish you were knitting with it so we can see it :-)

  8. Carol says:

    Only you can do it with flair! Love the photo of you in a tree:) And REALLY LOVE the fact the writing a book was italicized!!! Woo hoo!! Just let me know when it’s time to pre-order please?!

  9. Isobel says:

    Ditto on the book. Also, did you ever make “Shazam” available? I know that “Twist” is similar, but just wondering. Love your patterns!

  10. Gaile says:

    LOL…that woman in the black tee beside you (on the bus) looks almost embarrassed by the knitting going on beside her. Or she’s afraid of the pointy sticks?
