Launch party & book signing recap

We had a great time at The Knitted Slipper Book launch party at Robie Books on Friday night! There were so many friends, Duo Fiberworks readers and Berea folks there.

I was totally surprised when Laura presented me with the "Kitchener Academy's" "World's Coziest Book" award. Laura designed, knit, felted and embellished the super-sweet trophy.

So, I guess I can now say I'm an award-winning author! Ha.

The slipper piñata was a huge success, though it was too sturdy, we ended up having to cut into it with a knife to get the treats out!

We had a lower-key event at Rebelle on Saturday, and I didn't have Michael there to snap photos, so I'm glad I remembered to take any!

But it was really fun to spend time with Sarah, Abby, Laura and the knitters that stopped by. I also managed to find some chunky wool to knit a quick cowl to wear to Rhinebeck.
