Yarn Bombing Book Launch

Last week Leanne and I did a live interview on a TV talk show, then a brief radio interview on CBC radio. Thursday evening, we had our book launch party (YouTube link) at Three Bags Full, which was terrific!! I don’t even know how many people showed up, but the shop was packed; it was pretty overwhelming. Everyone was really enthusiastic and nice, and we sold (and signed) many, many books. My folks visited over the weekend so they could be there for the launch, and a lot of our friends showed up, too.

I am really grateful for the terrific response the book is getting, and for all the media coverage! After the launch party, though, I was completely burned out. I’m not a natural extrovert, and I find talking to a lot of people to be really draining; I was kind of a mess by the end of last week. Thankfully, I was able to rest a lot over the weekend, and I’m finally starting to feel human again.

    You looked awesome and stupid me forgot to get a book then and there! Will you still sign one for me later? It looks so cool and I can’t wait to have my own copy. I’m a fan!

    Have you seen this story about the Cowichan knitters being considered a security risk by the RCMP and VANOC. Perhaps some yarn bombing is in order.
