Fresh off the road from visiting yarn shops in Northern California, life is going non-stop. I got in late Monday night and am now getting ready for another busy weekend at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, OR. This afternoon I head down to judge their Crochet Competition. I had the honor of judging for them last year, and am looking forward to seeing what crocheted creations people have come up with this year.
Saturday I will be doing a Book Signing at OFFF from 1 to 3 pm. Copies of Reversible Color Crochet will be available at the Eugene Textile Center booth. On Sunday I get to teach my first all-day Introduction to Reversible Intarsia Class, teaching the technique in my new book. There are still a few spots in my class on Sunday, but you can still sign up onsite!
Yesterday did my first live podcast interview on the Yarn Thing with Marly Bird. When I started out designing I discovered the Yarn Thing and old Getting Loopy podcasts, and listened to all the archived episodes (still available through iTunes and BlogtalkRadio). Nearly everything I learned about this business I learned from their shows, and now I've been on one of them. I have to admit after listening to years of podcasts, I was quite nervous. But having met Marly in person, it was just like chatting with a friend (with lots of people listening in). If you missed listening live, you can follow the link above - and be sure to head over to Marly's webpage to leave a comment and enter for a chance to win a copy of my book!
