Excitement City

I'm miles behind the times with this one but figured you'd love to see it if you haven't already.

Although it won't be out until January this is the cover for the book one of my designs will be appearing in. It looks fabulous and I have the cover sweater (by Olga) on my 'to knit' list already. There are so many names I recognise contributing to this book that I can't wait to see the other items in it. There are more details on Amazon for the curious.

Another thing that's got me all excited is this...

Looks like February's sweater can be finished after all. Not that there's much knitting going on around here at the moment. That very glum looking puppy has just had an operation and needs constant care. I've been told she must be kept completely still until the stitches come out which anyone who has ever had a 10 month old puppy will tell you is nigh on impossible.

The book is on my Amazon wishlist :) You must be bouncing off the walls (I would be!). Great that you found enough yarn to finish your sweater too!

Poor Cassie. Hope she's feeling better very soon.

And congratulations on your design, thats fantastic news! Another must have book to add to list!

WHAT?? How on earth are you supposed to keep a puppy still? That sounds beyond impossible to me. Poor little thing. I hope she feels better soon.

That book looks great!

What operation did puppy have?! Usually after a couple of days she should be ok to be a little boisterous. You'd be surprised how quickly they heal. I hope it wasn't anything too serious!

I'm looking forward to the book for sure!!
