Filed under: "Wrapped in Comfort"

Knitpicks.com is having a 40% off sale on books in stock.

I recently learned that “Wrapped in Comfort,” after the publisher had a bad quarter, is about to go out of stock permanently.  I note that Amazon has now raised their price.

I’ve been putting off mentioning it because I bought some cases but don’t yet know the details of what is required of me re selling copies myself, nor am I sure where to go to find out–but I can say that if you buy a copy from me, it’ll be signed.

My huge thanks to my readers for a good run with it.  Onward!

A bargain, no matter how you look at it!

Hmmm. That’s interesting. My copy is paperback (which is not my first choice for any book) so I’m wondering if yours are hardback? Dibs on one you have if they’re not paperback. Okay? I don’t mind waiting ’til you find out the specs on re-selling.

I’d love to get a copy from you, and signed, if you’re quite happy to ship to the UK when you’ve sorted out the whys and wherefores of selling your own. Paypal (or trade)?

I bought a copy and had hoped to meet you one day while at Stitches East to ask you to sign it.

I wasn’t sure if you’d be continuing to try to go to Stitches East anymore, so maybe I’ll try to buy a signed copy from you. 🙂

Ah man! You make it very tempting to buy a second copy and give the one I have to my mother. lol

That has to be encouraging news for you as you dream of new patterns and new colours…

Have an olive party with the squirrels! 😉

You have a good heart! I’m still waiting to get the couple of copies I want directly from you…

I’d buy one, but I already have one! Have for a year or so, now. It’s a great book.

Speaking of ways of publishing books, would a publisher consider your next (hypothetical, wink, wink) book spiral bound? That’s such a lovely way to lay open a knitting book.

I feel like I hit the lottery!!! I have your book, you signed it when we met in person at the booksigning at Kaleidescope.

When you start selling them yourself, I’ll buy a signed one & donate my LOVED original. I still just flip through your book for a knitting pick me up & inspiration. I am starting my mom’s Wanda’s Flowers this weekend. 🙂

if you have a PayPal account, you can probably put the book right on your blog page with a “click and buy” option — it’s pretty easy actually

Alison, I definitely want to get at least one signed copy from you to use as a door prize at DFW Fiber Fest next year. The theme is LACE and this fits so well! I was going to ask you closer to the event, but if the book is going EOL I need to ask now! If necessary, I’ll send a copy out to be signed.

Count me in, too, when you figure out all the details. About 2 years ago, I included a copy in a basket of ‘comfort’ items I put together for a fund raiser at our library. The knitters there were all stuffing the ticket box so they could win the book! Now I want a copy for myself.

That’s too bad….I’ll be sure to get another copy. 🙂

I’d been planning to get a copy of your book since Gigi told me about it a few weeks ago when I was talking about how difficult lace shawls are to wear in an electric wheelchair. I’d love to get a copy from you. Just let me know when and where. Janice
