Spot the blogger:

I can’t believe I haven’t seen this on a GTA blog yet, but maybe I just haven’t looked hard enough. Anyway, while Stephanie is off gallivanting around the US on her book tour, she’s also making the news here:

That’s the second page of the Life section of the Toronto Star. The full story is linked to from this page, though you seem to need to register to read it. It’s a nice story, though it says most of the same things as all these articles say. On the bottom of the page is an article about male knitters — but it’s the same article I’ve seen elsewhere, that talks in part about snowboarders knitting to save money on their gear (which makes absolutely no sense to me — we all know that knitting never saves money!).

Nice to see that Stephanie won’t fall victim to the usual Canadian practice of ignoring our own celebrities while they make it big in the States…

And just as I came dashing into the kitchen to check out our copy of the Toronto Star, my husband was brandishing the Life section excitedly, having just found the article himself. :)

There’s a listing of knitting books in the Ottawa Citizen today, with Stephanie’s book quoted nicely. I’ll mail it to you.

I can’t remember if I’ve ever left you a comment before, but if not…Hi, I’m Nikki, and I’ve been lurking around here for a couple of weeks now. I really enjoy your blog!

Anyhow, I had to thank you for mentioning Stephanie’s profile in The Star - I was in Montreal this weekend and didn’t pick it up, so I’ve emailed my parents and asked them to save their copy for me. Thanks!!

Oh, I blogged it right away…well Sunday. I was surprised the journalist mentioned the Latvian Mittens without any oohing and ahhing - clearly not a knitter herself.

Good grief. I’m quite sure that “celebrity” is a whole different thing. Don’t you think that a celebrity would have less laundry?

I’m sure of it. See you Wed.
