My friend Linda just sent me this link. Jane Pauley of Jane Pauley fame interviews Betsy McCarthy on The Today Show knitting and speaking about changing her life and re-inventing herself. Nice interview and look hard at the sock yarn she is knitting....
Yes, it's my Best Foot Forward sock yarn. What a thrill. Thanks for the heads-up Linda and Sandy. I've never met Betsy so it was really nice to see her on the t.v. and hear her voice.
My talk and book signing down in Madison, CT at RJ Julia was a huge success. Thanks to all of you blog readers who came. It was nice to meet you all and share the color. What a totally fabulous bookstore! Go if you haven't been. Julia and I were treated like queens - a nice quick dinner in their RJ Cafe, a book to take home as a gift (I picked up Sophie Dahl's Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights strictly because I had about 1 minute to choose and I was attracted to the cover), and two hostesses to set up, get the projector working, take care of the door prizes, and keep me on a time schedule.
A heads-up about upcoming Kristin events......
The classes this weekend in Ridgefield CT are sold-out. The classes in Harvard, MA (March 20th) are close to sold out. See the sidebar for more information.
I'm doing an event called The Knit-A-Thon at The Wellesley Booksmith in Wellesley, MA on March 27th along with a group of other authors. I did this day a couple years ago and it was great fun. Here's the link. It is free, I think.
Update on the "Getting Stitched Classes at The Farm" -- There are only 3 spaces left in the July 31/August 1 class. If you are on the fence and thinking about it, I suggest signing up soon to avoid disappointment. Here's the link. These classes are small and intimate and like no other knitting class you have taken. You can read comments from last year's students here.
My phone line for my modem is out again. I think that is the third time so far in 2010. Thank goodness for WIFI at the library. If you are trying to get a hold of me by e-mail, please be patient.
