'A Stitch In Time Vol. 2' today, and my day was made! This was a book that had been nearly two years in the making, and it's even better than I could have hoped. It's a lovely hardback book, good and weighty. The attention to detail is fantastic, and there are so many lovely designs. I can't wait to get knitting!
There is a chapter called "Fit and Finish", teaching modern knitters how to adapt these vintage designs so that they'll fit perfectly - it even includes a helpful size chart.
I'm about to cast on 'The Sunday Pictorial Beret'; I just need to decide on a suitable colour.
I had a wonderful time helping out Susan where I could: sewing up, a bit of knitting, and modelling (very excited to see my picture on the front and back covers!).

I met two ladies who are fans of Susan Crawford and A Stitch In Time, who recognised me from the books. They were helping at Knitshop's stand in the main hall, so of course I had to go and say hello to Julieta there. I then spotted the Nest stand, which was as Rose described it, 'bijou'. I can't wait for the Stitch In Time Vol 2 book launch there in a few weeks!

Volume 1 & Volume 2! (Not that it's made me vain or anything.) I can't wait for A Stitch In time Volume 2 to hit the shelves. It'll be such a treat to see it complete, as I haven't seen many of the pics so far.
