Crochet Me Book Launch - Seattle
Yesterday was the Crochet Me book launch with promotional parties happening in yarn shops across the country. I was the guest at the Seattle event hosted by Hilltop Yarn and Needlepoint on beautiful Queen Anne. (Note: at the intersection by the yarn shop there was a Tullys, Starbucks, Peets Coffee, Cafe LLadro, and Tea Shop - there is no escaping the caffeine in this neighborhood).
Hilltop is a beautiful, cozy shop owned by Jennifer Hill. They have tons of yarn and a very friendly, experienced staff who also contribute to the stores brand of patterns called Decidedly Hilltop.
The party went very well. There was caffeine (see first paragraph) and cookies and yarn and chatting. I met some fabulous people and even met Amanda, a quilter/knitter/crocheter friend from Ravelry and LJ, in person!
Oh, and there was cake! Yarn, coffee, and cake. How much better could it get?
Look, look, a cozy nook, with my book!
