My friend Michael del Vecchio–author of the new book, Knitting with Balls did a signing tonight at the local independent bookstore, Politics and Prose. There were over 50 (!) people in attendance. He said it was his best attended signing yet–since he’s local here I was glad the crowds came out for him.
Michael did a great job–he talked for almost an hour and kept everyone’s attention chatting about the book and it’s projects throwing in funny stories. The book itself, as I’ve mentioned before is great. It’s beautifullly styled. Michael designed all the patterns himself, and they’re things guys would really wear. The book is designed to teach men to knit, but it would be great for anyone who wants to knit for men, too.
I’m going to be interviewing Michael towards the end of the year, here on the blog, and I have one of his books to give away too. Stay tuned!
