Last Monday, I got a call from my husband while I was at work. He had noticed there was a package for me downstairs on his way out, but he was in a rush and didn’t bring it upstairs.
I wondered what it could be. I hadn’t ordered anything recently and wasn’t expecting anything. I told him to call me as soon as he got home with more information.
He called back as promised and told me it was from Interweave. Interweave? Could it be my book? Since it’s due out in May/June, I knew it couldn’t be impossible.
I gave him the Ok to rip the package open and sure enough, the first copy of my book had arrived!
When I got home, he had my book waiting for me. Everything else could wait (who needs dinner anyway). I opened up the crisp pages to see the final product. While I had approved a final PDF on the computer screen, seeing it in print for the first time made it real. The format is a little larger than the Interweave books from the past few years and everything looked perfect. As I slowly turned each page, I revisited each sweater one by one, remembering the excitement as I finished each piece and sent them off to my Editor.
Just a little over 2 years ago, I was in the initial planning stage and this day seemed so far away! Even now that the book is in my hands, it still feels a little bit unbelievable.
I’m not exactly sure when it will start hitting the stores, but my guess is it will be very soon! I hope that you will all be as pleased with it as I am. I’m looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful projects!
