Nooz!

Whew. Where to start? I guess with the signing:

and then to the post office:

And...what I am trying to say is (in Sheri's style):

I'mdoingabookwithInterweavePressEeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Being terribly superstitious about such things, I didn't want to say anything until I had the signed contract in my hands! But I do now. And I am very very excited. My book (I have to get used to saying that - eeeeeeeeee!) is on knitted and crocheted jewelry using wire, beads and fiber, and it's due out in Fall 2008. Ulp. :)

Cannot wait to see it. If it's anything like what I've seen from you on the Knitty site so far, I'm in big big trouble.

Congratulations!! And, not saying anything till the contract's signed isn't superstitiousness, it's just common sense. I know how hard it is not to, though. Meantime, I'm very thoroughly proud and happy for you. Have fun!
