I mean . . . wow! Thank you! I really appreciate all the comments and emails you’ve sent me in response to my posting the Amazon.com link for my upcoming book. I am so flattered and honored that so many of you let me know that you’ve put it on your wishlist or pre-ordered it, sight unseen. Again . . . wow!
To answer a few questions . . .
The book is a combination of prose and patterns. There are 20 patterns included. For all sorts of stuff. A few of them I’ve shared on my website, but most of them are ones you don’t have.
I’ve slightly reworked the felted kittybed pattern, so that’s one of the ones you’ve seen before. So, yes, Lucy appears in the book, as she is modeling the bed in the photos.
Book tour? I’ve no idea. How all that is done is up to the publisher. But I’ll know sooner or later. As soon as I know, you’ll know. I really haven’t a clue how book distribution works, but (in answer to a comments question) I’m pretty sure it’ll be available for sale at Knit Happens, among many other places.
Current Knitting? Bleah, Barf.
That sounds promising, doesn’t it?
Those two skeins of yarn I pictured in Thursday’s entry did, indeed, become the moss stitch hat from Louisa Harding’s accessories book. There is no photo of it here, because I was underwhelmed by the finished hat and it is no longer in my possession.
Then, knitting ennui set in. This afternoon I cast on for at least seven different things and discarded at least seven different things.
So I think I’ll stick with the poor little qiviut scarf until I become inspired to start something else.
Here. Proof that I haven’t ripped out the poor little qiviut scarf.
More on the Baby Ugg Booties
I had a question about the Ugg booties — is there enough to make another pair? There’s definitely enough of the Plush used for the trim and the Suede used for the sole. The darker color of Suede — I dunno. The yarn is wound on a cardboard spool and I can’t judge how much is left. It looks like enough . . . but I dunno.
