I’ve been busy recently, so busy that it’s taken me a couple of weeks to actually write this post. The whirlwind of VK Live and Tnna is over and I’m writing this in the Phoenix airport as I await a flight to stay with friends in California, where I’m going to catch up on remaining work and then spend some time relaxing. Very excited about that! So, in case you haven’t seen, here are the two new books.
The first is Whimsical Little Knits 3, featuring more of the same kinds of fun little projects as the first two in the series.
The second is a collaboration with my friend Jeni from Fyberspates. She asked me a while ago if I’d like to develop a colour palette in her Scrumptious yarn and I jumped at the chance to choose any colours I wanted. So there are 6 of my colours now available (you can order from Fyberspates or ask your local yarn store – Lantern Moon are distributing them in the US, Fybersaptes in the UK). Of course, once I had these colours I had to work with them and the result is a book called Saturday Treatwith six accessory patterns. All but one use just one skein, and it’s possible to make a few Pear Drop shawls from just one.
Both books are currently available to pre-order and a pdf ebook can be downloaded instantly. Individual, more print friendly pdfs of each pattern are gradually being uploaded and printed books should be shipping by the end of the month.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
