Woo hoo! My first proper book by me, rather than by Deadly Knitshade (that Deadly Knitshade always gets the kudos).
I buried myself in yarn and words at the end of last year to conjure up my very first knitting pattern book, Stitch London. You can read all about how it came about here, but now it’s time to celebrate.
Stitch London the book fluttered into bookshops across the UK, US and Canada last month and my publishers, David and Charles, thought it was about time we celebrated after all the hard work.
In case you missed it here’s a peek at the night of purled pigeons, little knitty cupcakes and Plarchie, the giant knitted squid, stealing the limelight as always.
You can see Momtaz’s lovely review of Stitch London here.
HUGE HUUUUUUUGE woolly hugs to everyone who came along and made the Stitch London book launch so fantabulous. It was a pleasure to party with you all.
And if you’re desperate to hear the book launch speeches then you’ll be pleased to know the lovely Sarah McIntyre (who also drew the lovely image of me at the top of this post) sneakily filmed it. Eek!
You can watch them here and pretend you were there. You can read Sarah’s fabulous post on the night over at her Jabberworks blog:
Massive thanks to Foyles at the Royal Festival Hall for hosting us too. Sorry if Plarchie ate some of your customers.
Sugar-coated thanks to Love Cakes London who made those amazing knitty cupcakes.
Woolly thanks to my pigeon-knitting pals Clare, Amy, Toria, Curlyminx (Deb) and my mum.
And hooray for David and Charles for organising my idea of book launch madness into some kind of order.
