Te DA!

It's a book!

My one 'advance' copy.

What is it about having a book?  I mean 50 thousand billion other people have books.

But ....the old baby analogy works.

50 thousand billion people have babies - but when your own baby comes - it's as if no-one ever did it before.

One feels unreasonably special and becomes insufferably proud.

And that ain't no pretentious shite.


And in the light of that - I will get all mushy and share the dedication with you....

For my mother Kate, who would have smiled so wide.  And for my son Benjamin, who makes ME smile so wide.




Post Script
The book is officially released into shops on April Fools Day!!

Keep your eye on the side menu for signing event near you. The Mighty Murdoch Men have planned a book tour with 13 events from here to Hobart.

Congratulations, Loani!!! If I'm ever so fortunate, I'll be very insufferably proud {as opposed to insufferable, which hopefully I won't be}. Your dedication is beautiful. Really beautiful.
It's a beautiful thing Loani - book and dedication x

Congratulations Loani!! It looks SPECTACULAR - can't wait to see inside...

But - April?! We still have to wait for April???!!@ That's just plain mean.

It makes me smile just looking at it - knitting or no, I plan to have me one just as soon as I can. And I want a signed one, so watch out for me at the book signing - I might even bring Marjie with me. That'd be funny. xx

Well done! I'd love to write a craft book, and if I did I'd be shouting 'te da!!' from the rooftops. Your knitted creations are wonderful, so quirky and unique.
