Yesterday evening, I ventured into DC and went to one of my favorite LYS's, Looped, for a book signing and got the chance to meet the brilliant author of Knit Local, Tanis Gray! She first noticed the cowl I was wearing and loved it. She's SO fun and ridiculously talented, I had to get her book! All I have to say is that it's genius, combining talented American knitwear designers with sustainable, local yarn and fiber companies. It's a definite go to book and an excellent read! By the way, if you haven't checked out her designs, you MUST. Some of my favorite are the Appalachian Hat, Grand Palais Shawl, Lodi Cardigan, and the Entwined Cowl.
Have a wonderful weekend!
