Last night, Lindsay and Jon arrived in Sunriver bearing boxes of books. This morning I set up the workstation, and today is dedicated to getting books ready to mail to knitters. Sunriver is where the photos for the book were taken, so it is rather appropriate that this step is taken here, too.
Tomorrow, Lindsay and I will be running the Pacific Crest Trail 10K, and then we will head home to Portland, with the books all signed, sealed and ready to be taken to the Post Office on Monday morning. They are going all over the world, and as I addressed the labels I marveled at all of the places “Annetarsia Knits” is going. All over the US and Canada, and places as far away as Denmark and South Africa. It is an immense honor, and I would be nervous if it wasn’t for the fact that the book is really great. Even after all this time, when I open it I am so proud and happy with the result of the team effort. Now, knitters all over the world will get to see what so many people have worked hard to make real over the past few years.
Enough of this, I’m back to signing and packing up books!
