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...

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...

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 ;-) !!!
