Knitting in Public

(Photo from KnitKnit)

There's a lot going on for knittters this weekend. In addition to The National Needlework Association (TNNA) convention in Columbus, OH, it is Worldwide Knit in Public Day, which, despite its name, is actually two weekend's worth of public knitting events around th world (6/13-6/14 and 6/20- 6/21).

I'm likely to be knitting in public at the airport on my way to Columbus for TNNA. At this trade show we are showcasing all of our knitting titles and also introducing our Fall 09 titles to yarn shop owners and others in the industry.  If you can't be there, but are curious, here's the scoop: For Fall 09, we are publishing Reversible Knitting by Lynne Barr, One More Skein by Leigh Radford, and Knitted Socks East and West by Judy Sumner. To see sample interior spreads, click on the book covers at right.

If you will be at TNNA, you can see all of this in person at the book distributor booths and, if you like, you can meet Kristen Rengren, author of Vintage Baby Knits, and I at our book signings. Here is the schedule:
