I first met Amy C. Rea through her blog, Knit Think, where her motto is "As ye knit, so shall ye rip" -- Leah K, and where she writes about food, flowers, knitting, poetry, and Star Trek collectible glasses. Amongst other things.
She recently ran a contest on her other blog, A Closer Look at Flyover Land, where she writes about the beauties of Minnesota. I won!
Not only do I have my own, signed copy of her new book, Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes, but also a collection of poetry from Minnesota, Where One Voice Ends, Another Begins, and the delicious skein of hand-dyed yarn by Aisha Celia in the photos.
Of course, the first entries I looked for in the index were "book stores" and "yarn stores." Plenty of each, of course...
Thank you, Amy, for the books, the yarn, and for our friendship.
