How exciting - hearty congratulations! Loved the teaser and the wonderful wrapping paper - I can't wait to see the book.


How exciting! Your pictures really share the joy of your new book. I'm so happy for you.



I'm counting the days until my copy arrives. In the meantime, you've probably already heard about this but, just in case not or in case others are interested:
Sorry it's after the event. I didn't come across any advance publicity.

Congratulations once again.



Wow! It looks great! (And the content will be fabulous as well, I know.)


OH! How exciting! I can't wait to get my hands on my copy - but this is droolworthy eye candy etc etc.

Major congratulations to you and Carol!!

Diana Troldahl

Wow, what a wonderful glimpse!
It is going on my Yule gift wish list (or maybe my birthday in October). I can hardly wait!

Deborah Robson

Thanks for the wonderful comments! It's such a delight to share this with the folks who have been providing support all along.

Alison: Oh, I would have loved to have been in North Ronaldsay for that conference. I appreciate knowing that it happened. I had the pleasure of meeting Liz Lovick in Scotland last year.


Fabulous! Beautiful! Wow! Looks wonderful from front to back and all in between. Plane is loading for departure from SB. Must go -- congratulations!

Deb Robson

Thanks, Meg! Hope you had a good and successful trip.

Kathryn | Alpacamundo

Congratulations!! I'm so excited for you. I hope you autograph my copy, eventhough I'm never around. :-)

Susan Gallacher-Turner

Congratulations on the 'birth' of your newest book...it is beautiful!

And wow, what an amazing amount of information and work you all did on this book.


Having actually been *extremely* privileged to see this book in "person" yesterday, the pictures don't do it justice--it's incredible, beautiful, so well put together it's a blessing to read, and the information--and the pictures--oh! Hope Storey realizes how many are going to be demanded all over the world!

Deborah Robson

Susan, I look forward to when you can see a copy "for real." It's crammed with information--lots of questions that I wanted to answer for myself that took a bunch of research and thought to assemble. It was fun! But wow. I needed those several writing retreats that I was grateful to have access to. I can remember *exactly* where I was when I solved certain problems.

And Kris, I'm glad you got to peruse the real thing: the one copy that's been in my hands!

Penny Tschantz

Thank you, Deb, for making this event a real occasion for all of us who've been cheering you on. I can't wait to have the actual book in hand; what a lovely treat to anticipate!

Sherrie Y

A little late to the party (as usual), but yippee! It looks gorgeous, can't wait to see one in the flesh! Er, fiber.

Deborah Robson

Kathryn, we'll figure out how to get you an autograph. You're around *sometimes,* and so am I . . . those events will coincide (of course, the book will need to be there, too).

Penny, I'm really glad you enjoyed this. I'm still stunned by the physical object, which is sitting on the table in the middle of the living room.

I'm hoping to get to your part of the world in May, Sherrie, and I'll bring this with me.

millie cole

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing this special moment with us. I can hardly wait to see it for real.


It's so beautiful! I can't even imagine what a thrill it must have been to open that package.
Congratulations, and thank you so much for all your hard work!

Deborah Robson

I sure appreciate the comments. Looking at the book amazes me. Just like after my kid was born. Not the same, of course, but more echoes than seems logical.


It looks excellent! I'm going to keep an eye out for this book. Congrats


I just won a copy of this from Knitty, and I seriously cannot wait until it arrives at my door. I am so excited!

Deb Robson

Im thrilled for you, Rachael! Thats great news! Let me know what you think when you get it.
