McNally_Treats-Wpg-72Oops. Momentarily distracted by the delicious dainties provided by Prairie Ink Café at McNally Robinson Booksellers. Mmmmmm!

 

L_Bird-Wilson-Wpg1-72Lisa Bird-Wilson wins out over the dainties, with the audience attentive to the heart-rending details in her reading.

work-of-their-hands-Wpg-72Our knitters in the audience. No idle hands here… and it’s so much easier to knit when you’re listening rather than reading. None of those pesky pages to turn!

Char-Dora-Faith-Nicole-Lisa72Charlene Diehl puts the questions to the Fictionknitsas. Some surprising answers!
