A long strange road indeed....

Those of you who have been reading along for a while, have noticed that I like to play outdoors :) and on occasion, for information about where I've been playing, I link to another site regularly. You may have guessed that I am in some way affiliated to said site - and indeed I am - I'm the proud wife of Todd of Todd's Desert Hiking Guide, an extensive site dedicated to providing hiking routes and info (amongst other things) for the desert Southwest (primarily Arizona and Utah)....incidentally, the DH and I have been wrapped up working on a Really Big Project.

Over a year in the making, this project, in addition to the official launch of Spritely Goods are the biggest, most significant and most rewarding (and perhaps most frustrating at times too ;) ) "Finished Objects" I've ever had the pleasure to work on...

a book. Not a knitting book ;) - but a Hiking Guide for one of my favorite activities other than knitting :) It's chock full of photos, and I'm excited to say I can now add "Cover Girl" to the list of my accomplishments ;) The book is available for purchase directly through Todd's Desert Hiking Guide - we're in the process of setting up distribution to retail locations and Amazon.com. If you happen to know of a book store or outdoor store that may be interested in carrying this book, I'd appreciate any contact info you can forward to me :)

I've learned a *ton* in the process of bringing this project to this stage, and I'm sure I'll continue to learn plenty more. Now that the books are in hand, I can say I'm very pleased with the results :)

Stay tuned for knitting content - even though she's been dry for days, I haven't unpinned the Wing of the Moth yet - was too busy moving boxes around ;)

That's great! I don't have contact info, but I think it would be a great idea to check with the buyers for the gift shops of the zoo and the botanical garden and the different historical monuments. Plus, there's all there's all the touristy souvenier shops, like in Scottsdale.
Good luck!
