Crazy Aunt Purl!

Came to Minneapolis to sign her book at the Mall of America, and didn't get a chance to shop. That seems almost criminal, don't you think?

She was absolutely lovely in person. A fantastic combination of Lee Anne Rhimes and Reese Witherspoon, or maybe it was just the accent. She kept asking us if we understood her. "Ya sure, you betcha"

She read the intro and first chapter of her book and it made me want to read more. I really admire her courage to be so honest about coping with her divorce. It's amazing to see the person she has become coming out the other end of that experience.

Like I said, that bastard leaving her was the best thing he could have ever done. She is so much better off. I think this book will speak to many people, regardless if they are knitters or cat owners or not.
