This post was meant to go live yesterday, but I just couldn’t make myself hit “Publish”. Yesterday’s terrible, terrible events left me too heartsick, too helpless, and ultimately in no place to share any details about my trip to NYC or the wonderful things supporting the book. My heart and well-wishes are with the victims and their families. Our family was, by chance, traveling back home yesterday, but Patriot’s Day and the marathon are typically yearly fixtures for me, as they are for many Bostonians. We’re reeling.

I’m still not in a great place, frankly–there is going to be a lot of hugging and knitting around here today–but I can’t wait to post any longer, because there is blog tour going on for the book and I hope that some of you can follow along.

I kicked it off yesterday at Rock and Purl by doing a guest post. I was excited to do so, because I admire the clean lines of Ruth’s designs and follow her work eagerly. Today, Julia Trice reviews the book on her blog. Each stop on the blog tour includes a giveaway, so please follow along (and perhaps find a great blog you may have missed before!) and share your thoughts and great sweater plans. Here’s the full list:

Monday, April 15: Rock and Purl
Tuesday, April 16: Mind of Winter
Wednesday, April 17: Mary Jane Mucklestone
Thursday, April 18: Moth Heaven
Friday, April 19: Baby Cocktails
Saturday, April 20: Knitting At Large
Sunday, April 21: ADD Knitter
Monday, April 22: Savory Knitting
Tuesday, April 23: Carole Knits

Hope to see you all around the tour in the coming week and a half. And here’s a bit of a peek at some of my NYC accomplishments, to liven up this sober morning:


May you and yours be well today. Thank you for reading.
