We had a blast with Susan B. Anderson when she came to the shop earlier this month. She’s funny, energetic, and possesses a seemingly limitless excitement for knitting for kids. Everyone loved the sweaters, pillows, blankets, and toys from her book Itty Bitty Nursery.
Lots of folks brought their kids, which made this event especially fun. Nicole drove 2 hours to meet Susan. She had her daughter Maeve with her, whose the youngest of her 8 kids (there’s a picture of the whole family on her blog)! Just imagine the holiday knitting list! Maeve is wearing a hat that Nicole knit from Susan’s first book, Itty Bitty Hats.
I need to thank Susan’s sister Dawn for the great photographs. She and Susan are like two peas in a pod and great fun. I wish we’d had more time to spend together. You can see more of the pictures she took and read about Dawn’s celebrity sightings in New York on Susan’s blog.
Susan and I discussed her returning to Loop after her next book is published to teach some classes. Until then, there are still a few autographed copies of Itty Bitty Nursery in the shop for those of you who missed her and want to knit some of her designs.
