Book Signing At The Tangled Web

The Tangled Web was thrilled to host a book signing event for Adrienne Martini, author of "Sweater Quest-My Year of Knitting Dangerously". Adrienne chronicled a year long endeavor to knit "the Holy Grail of sweaters-her own Mary Tudor". The group was enthralled by Martini's discussion and reading, which guided us through her adventure from initial color choices to the final steps of steeking. For those who might be unfamiliar with the term, steeking is a technique in which you cut, yes cut, your finished knitting. It is also an idea that makes some of us reach for our smelling salts.

By the end of the event we all felt like very close friends. Adrienne was warm and welcoming and was happy to jot special notes in each persons book and answer questions about her adventure.

A great big thanks to Adrienne for making the event possible and to all those who came out to support her and The Tangled Web.

If you were unable to attend the event it's not too late as we still have several signed copies available for purchase. Here are a few photos of the event and Adrienne's finished masterpiece.
