Hello from Heathrow! I hope everyone is nearly finished with their Rhinebeck sweater(s)! Mine just needs the finishing touches — ends sewn in, buttons sewn on and pockets sewn in. We have some exciting news about the book, tomorrow we’ll receive the first copies from the printer and they’ve managed to make enough in time that we’ll be able to do sell some at the festival in addition to those that have been pre-ordered.
Ysolda will be signing books between 3–4 on Saturday afternoon at the Green Mountain Spinnery building 22D booth 22. If you haven’t purchased your book yet Green Mountain Spinnery will have copies available to purchase.
If you have pre-ordered the book and are planning on picking it up at the festival we’ll see you on Saturday or Sunday just after the Ravelry meet-up in the same location. Please bring your paypal receipt to make things easier for us.
See everyone soon!
We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.
We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
