The City Beautiful
September 25, 2008
Just a note to let people of the Midwest know that Ann and I, with the help of our co-conspirator Bonne Marie, have cooked up a late-breaking plan to go to Chicago the first weekend in October.
On Friday, October 3, we will be helping Loopy Yarns celebrate the grand opening of its grand new location. They’ll have our new book in plentiful supply, and we will sign them and hang out and provide whatever entertainment we can. We’ll be there from 6-9 p.m. or until asked to leave.
Then, on Saturday, October 4, we will spend pretty much the whole day at Yarncon! We’ll do signings from 10:30 to noon and then from 1:30 to 4 p.m. After which we hightail it to the airport.
For those knitting Tiny Hats for charity, we will be happy to receive them at any of these events, and promise to mail them to the UK by the deadline for the campaign.
Tonight I’m going to be at Shea Stadium for Stitch & Pitch, unless it gets rained out. I always feel like a dork there, being a Yankee fan. I have no idea who’s on first, you know? Really subpar knowledge of a local team, but what can I say? Only so much baseball will fit into my brain, and the Yankees got there first.
