And here it is, Yetsa's Sweater by Sylvia Olsen and illustrated by Joan Larson (the same artist who will be doing the new StableMates covers, in fact!) Yetsa's Sweater is a lovely book about the tradition of making Cowichan Sweaters. Sylvia's launch will be on Thursday evening (Sept. 28th from 7-9 pm) at the Mary Winsear Centre. May Sam (the model for the grandmother in the illustrations) will be on hand doing some sweater-making demonstrations. Yetsa (Sylvia's grand-daughter) will be there being both cute and famous, and Joan Larson (along with a selection of her artwork) will also be in attendance. Come one, come all! Should be a great time... If I get myself organized, I'll take photos and post them here, so you can see what you're missing!
