A Run on Doris Chan?

We are currently at the Danbury Fair Mall preparing to visit with Santa. It is our tradition to come to the Mall, have the children write their letters to Santa listing three items they wish for him to bring when he visits on Christmas Eve. This also gives me some time to work on a crochet project, and in this case I'm working on a doggie sweater that will be a gift.

As we are sitting here we've been approached by several people inquiring about a garment Mini~Dee is wearing. "Whoa! Where did you buy that?"

"What your little girl has on is beautiful! Please tell me where I can buy it!"

"Pardon me, can you tell me more about what your daughter is wearing"

Of course I am just beaming; I'm loving that I get to answer, "Why, certainly you can buy one too, but some assembly is required." I ask if they know how to crochet; so far all that have inquired stated that they do. Then I tell them that all they need then is Doris Chan's "Amazing Crochet" book, some ribbon yarn and a crochet hook. I got a lot of THANKS YOUs as they wondered off to continue their holiday shopping. I'm wondering if this means there will be another run on Doris' book??

Oh what fun it is to promote crochet, even if it is just a moment we're sharing together, getting ready to visit with Santa. What do you think I should ask him for??? Sent via Mobil Phone by Dee

I'm surprised that they didn't offer you money to make one for them!!!  Leave it to you, Dee, to have perfect strangers start talking about crochet!  I love it!

Love and hugs and wishes for a very Merry Christmas!
