Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

satyr's dance

What to knit at the book signing?  I have finished my "portable" knitting project - a triangle scarf knit from Dave Daniels' wonderful hand dyed and handspun yarn, Satyr's Dance.  The colors aren't accurate her,but even approximately, you can see how glorious it is!  Just the thing to zing up a basic black.

And I owe you guys!  I sold twenty books on line. Book number two, Sanna and the Dragons, is a lock!  Wahoo!  We hope to bring it out in July.

But what to knit at the book signing?  The old paperbacks I am selling off have the pattern for the self-heating mittens.  Maybe I should go with them.  In red, black and grey.  Sophisticated and classy.  /yeah - I'll go for it.

    Yep, knit those mittens because it really gives potential readers a talking point. Readers will take a chance on a new book/author because you created a fun experience for them when they met you.

    I am loving the first book and looking forward to the second. My favorite part is the magical embroidery stitches - but I guess you have to have a special Talent to do them.

    Where are you selling the books online? Is amazon the only retailer? I looked it up last night and there were a few listings, one for 107.29 and one for .30. Quite a difference! I want to make sure you get credit for the sale where it will do the most good.

    I know it's cheesy and maybe not what you want to knit but I suggest knitting Sanna's mobeius so that when people ask you can connect it to the book.
