A few weeks ago I got an email from the Sow’s Ear knitting cafe that they were having a special evening with Clara Parkes and Meg Swanson for a book release, reading and signing for Clara’s latest book A Stash of One’s Own. This is about two hours from where I live, but it’s Madison and it’s a cool place to visit so we made arrangements for our two older daughters to stay with my parents and took our little guy Ethan with us. He was the perfect travel companion along with my supportive and awesome husband. Here he is at the cafe.
I attended the event by myself and didn’t know what to expect. That being said, everything about it was perfection.
Meg read her excerpt from the book:
I got my book signed by both, chatted briefly, bought a skein of yarn that made me think of my daughter, Lily then went back to the hotel and crashed. It was worth the drive and my heart was full.
