My pre-ordered copy arrived last night on release day (I love it when that happens!) and I can hardly wait to delve into this happy tale. While I love my book club books, they tend to be a bit dark and depressing and I've been hoping for a light-hearted uplifting book. Rachael's book should do the trick!
Here's my connection to Rachael. Way back when in the early days of blogging (7 years ago to be exact), I stumbled across my first blog, well, actually, Rachael's blog. I was searching for a specific yarn, and when I input my query, Google took me straight to this post - Orange Alert. I was immediately pulled in to Rachael's wit and charm. I didn't know how to comment on a blog at that time, but I emailed her and asked about the yarn, the blog, the technology, etc She even recommended her own host Typepad as a good platform for getting started - and she continued to answer my ongoing novice questions. She was (and is) a gem! Her cheerfulness and helpfulness were the impetus for me to start my own blog. So there you have it. You have Rachael to thank (or blame) for the birth of my Major Knitter blog.
OK. So what are you going to do about it? I'll tell you what you're going to do. You're going to buy her book and support another knitting artist. What are you still doing here? Hop on over to Amazon and purchase your own copy of Rachael's book. Go on.
