Big news from Chez Alpaca

Hey, you guys.

It's 5:00 PM, I am still in my pajamas and I have a crick in my neck from sitting at the computer for the last billion hours and my hair is greasy but you guys? My knitting book? It is finished and on the way to the editor!!!!!

Yes, I know there will be edits...and galleys to proof...and actually a lot more work to do... But for now, don't burst my bubble. That book - that book about knitting is halfway to being a real book now instead of being a bunch of random ideas scribbled on post-it notes. I have written other books and have more yet to write, but THIS book is the KNITTING book, and I have never gotten to do one of those before and I am pretty damned deliriously happy.

And now I am going to go soak in a big bathtub until I feel human again. Which may be tomorrow, but so what? My knitting book went to the editor today...
