Booksigning in Sunnyvale, and Blue Moon Geisha

If anybody wants a signed copy of Wrapped in Comfort, they can order it from and I’ll come into their shop and inscribe it. This Thursday evening, though, I’m going to do a little more; I’m going to show up with a whole bunch of shawls for an official booksigning and trunk show event there. Please, no sniffles, for those coming; it would be highly appreciated.

This shawl is done in Blue Moon’s Geisha Geisha Backstabber colorwayline (which they carry), a non-furry kid mohair/silk/nylon blend. My only problem is, I love the colorway. But how do I–I mean, can you imagine a more intense disconnect… I like to write about the ways knitting helps create connections between people and how giving of our handiwork can forge friendships. This colorway is called Backstabber. I would love to know the story behind that name!

Maybe I’ll have to keep this one?

The shawl is gorgeous! I felt the same way when I was making my Ribby Pulli with the same colorway in Twisted. What a combo: “Twisted Backstabber” 😉

You MUST keep that shawl for yourself! It’s so lovely and will make you feel happy. Now you just have to get a story for the name of that colorway.

Allison –
What an awesome selfless Christmas gift. I got chills reading your post over at Harlot. Knitting is an expression of ourselves and what gift could be any better.

Love and Laughter,
