KnitsyKnits is writing a knitting book!

premarin price attend Tuesday, September 5, 2017 That’s right! With The Mindy Project wrapping up its final season and my last knits for her have been mailed off… I’ll be transitioning into this next project full speed! Writing a knitting book has been a dream of mine for several years. I’ve spent a LOT of time thinking about it during my deadline knitting marathons. And I’ve done a LOT of talking about it “to” my husband (he just listens as I blab on about all of my ideas and then tells me “that sounds great!”).

I truly embody the phrases “If I can’t take my yarn, I’m not going!” and “If I’m sitting, I’m knitting.” Of course, I’m also knitting if I’m standing in line, watching a rock band play, sitting on the 405 parking lot, and pretty much any other time when I have idle hands. My friends are now only surprised if they DON’T see me knitting! I have really supportive friends and family around me and they are always interested to know what I’m working on. When I got The Mindy Project gig, I had to be quiet about it for awhile, but once it was out in the open, everyone was so happy that my business was taking off pharmaciepourhomme.fr/.
