This is Happening

This may be news to some of you, but to others not - in any event I will cut to the chase - yes, there is a book in the works. My own book, full of my own patterns, that you will be able to buy wherever it is that you like to buy books.I don't think I ever properly announced this impending bookdom, as it began humbly as a couple of idle tweets between Shannon and myself on a sultry morning this past July. Which is why I found myself speeding down to Cleveland on a similarly sultry morning this past August.Once I found my way into knitgrrl studios, Shannon and I sat down and started talking BOOK. Imagine my surprise when I noticed that this conversation was taking place almost ten years to the day that I had similarly sat across from a woman behind a desk and had...well, the exact opposite of this conversation. It's funny how history twists, turns, repeats itself...and provides. Had you told me ten years ago about where I'd be now I wouldn't believe you.And, you know, while I want to say "I wouldn't change a thing," that's not exactly true. What I do know is that I like where I'm at and I like Shannon A LOT better than that other lady - we share a comparably inappropriate sense of humour, for instance......and the sarcasm. Mustn't forget the sarcasm.

But yes, BOOK! My BOOK! Will keep you all posted as details become available that I am able to share.

I feel compelled to note that my MOTHER took (and framed) that photo of Balls St/Dick Lane.

She's good like that.

Eleni said...

Wow, congratulations! A dream come true! Totally gonna buy it :)

Audry said...

Wow whee, a book! I'm so excited for you. I'm glad to know what you've been up to. This morning I actually woke up thinking, "I haven't seen any patterns from Spillyjane recently. I hope she hasn't stopped designing."

spillyjane said...

Oh no, far from it! There are a lot of new patterns and things happening over here - it's just that a lot of them are for books (mine and other people's!) that I'm not able to show off just yet.

Marilyn said...

I'm looking forward to your book!!

Laura said...

I'm thrilled! What wonderful news!

Bonnie said...

Whoo hoo! I'm really excited for you... and for me, too. A whole book of spillyjane! Thanks!

Misiula said...

Yes! Can't wait!

spillyjane said...

Thanks so much, everybody! I really do appreciate it. :)

monica said...

YAY!! A book!! Congratulations! I can't wait for it to come out!

Anne said...

Congratulations on the Book! Hope it'll be a smooth process from right now to when I get my mitts on a copy.. ;-)

By the way, I had to laugh at the framed street signs in the last photo... Here in town, we have a Dick St, and it's close to the courthouse, so there are a whole bunch of law firms on Dick Street. Never fails to make me grin.

Maryse said...

What a nice anouncement! I love that many of my favorite bloggers are creating their own books! Now I also understand why there were no new patterns lately... and that reminds me of those Gnomes mittens ;-) !!!
