Well, it HAS to be last-minute, really...

So I've no idea why I started a little girl's cardigan in sock yarn.  (It might have had something to do with the lovely bamboo sock yarn... I can't stop fondling it). 
 There's every chance the cardigan will be put aside for a birthday and a quick Fairytale Skirt from my book will be whipped up in its place, in time for Christmas.  (But I'm giving the cardi my best shot.)
Other likely lads around the tree this year are toiletry bags....
 And belts..... super easy and effective.  Highly wearable... and quick. (And right now, I'm liking the idea of quick.)
 Speaking of Le Book.... (was that a subtle enough segue..?)
If you're in the USA and would like to see my book over there, I might need your help.  It appears that I accidentally deleted all my Google Analytics stats for my blog, just in time for my agent's pitch to US distributors*. Oops. 

I need to show the distributors that you're interested.  I hate to sound like I'm desperate for support, but I need new statistics!  If you know any crafty people who might be interested, please feel free to spread the bloggy and Facebook love.  The more US visitors, followers and "likers" I have, the more chance of US distribution.

*It appears that my publishers have no US distributor, but the book should be distributed in the UK next year, all going well.

And do you think it's alright to take knitting to the bloke's work xmas do tonight...?

Oh yes. Take the knitting!

And that yarn is just SO fondleable!

Definitely take the knitting - if it's sock wool, you'll need every possible minute!

I'm planning on making a wrap skirt from THE BOOK for my Christmas day outfit :)

I took some knitting last night to the family kinder breakup, hidden in my bag (the city bag is a good size). I didn't end up getting it out, but that was only because of the children that were in and out of my lap all night. I say take it and see how it goes.

Andy would kill me if I took any kind of craft along to a work do!! I agree though, you're going to need every minute if you want to get the cardi finished though. Good luck!

Yarn like that is definitely worth the last minute effort! (and yes, take it with you!!)

Take the knitting.

UK - next year? - woohoo!

Oh I love that yarn you're using (and bonus that it's bamboo as I wouldn't actually be allergic to it like I am to wool!) It would certainly be a conversation starter at the work do ;o) (I managed an entire conversation about the clutch I had made for our do last weekend with the bloke that was saving me from an asthma attack - well, after the attack obviously!)

Glad the UK has leapt on board, sorry I'm not in the US to give you a helping hand there...

I'd take advantage of every opportunity & keep the knitting close at hand! As for the lovely book, count me as a US buyer (Oregon) in waiting.

Could you tell me when and where I can get your book? I'm in the UK.
