Sometime (read: most times) I get so caught up in deadlines and my online community of friends, “friends”, and followers that I forget about how good for the soul it is to hang out with the live, knit, crochet, and craft community. Since my latest book, Finger Knitting Fun was written by an Austin author, photographed by an Austin photographer, projects were modeled by Austin kids, and the photography was done at local business, TOMS Roasting Co., it seemed like a shame to not celebrate on my home turf, and with the people who also call this wacky, creative, paradoxical city home. So, I threw a little event, and it was lovely. Here’s a photo peak of the afternoon we spent celebrating a project, and encouraging kids to get creative with a ball of yarn!

Finger Knitting in Motion
All in all it was a wonderful event. I can’t thank Kristy Matthews and her TOMS, Austin team enough for donating their space, and helping to celebrate the launch of Finger Knitting Fun. Thanks, also to all of you who joined me, and to those who continue to show support by buying the book. I really appreciate it!
