Event Pictures, More Shout Outs, and our First Aussie Store!

Don’t forget! I’ll be at A Mano Yarn Center on Wednesday, January 28th at 6 PM to meet and greet, sign comic books, and hang out with some cool knitters. Come join us!


We had a great meet and greet on Saturday, with several visitors to the shop– and Joanne had almost sold out her inventory before I even arrived! She had a number of yarn kits with the right amount of yarn for the project, ready to go in the shop, too. See more pictures from the meet n’ greet here.

For designers, advertisers, and the generally curious, our editorial calendar is now available in .ics format here (for Mac or Thunderbird), or as a Google calendar here. Or you can see it on our website here.

We’ve added our first non-US shop! American Yarns in Queensland, Australia has a batch of copies winging its way over there next week! As always, you can check our Shop Locator to find stores near you that carry Handknit Heroes.

Shout Outs

Technomom gave us a linky shout-out. Thanks, technomom!

Largehearted Boy linked to us in the “shorties” post this week.

And a personal shout-out for me: Shannon Okey (author of How to Knit in the Woods, among other marvelous things) pointed that Issue #2 of El Gorgo is out, and there’s a shout-out in the credits/acknowledgements to me and Marty from ReadComics.org. Yes, the fangirl squeeing could be hear round the world.

Thanks everyone. And remember, if you’ve blogged about Handknit Heroes, or you sighted it in the wild, please drop me an email to let me know!
