2014 - The Year of the (First) Book

video

I'm thrilled to share that I'm working on my first book! It's a collection of 19 brand new designs, both garments and accessories, that are a modern take on classic feminine silhouettes. The designs in the book can be styled for the office, the weekend, and a night out. I love the act of dressing and with the designs in this book you will too!

The book is slated for release in Fall of 2015. I know, that's so far away. Alas, I need time to write the patterns and knit the samples, and my publisher needs time to take photographs and put it all together. Fear not; follow me on Instagram and Facebook to get extra special sneak peeks of the process. In the meantime you can check out my back catalog here. If you'd like to receive an e-mail when the book is available and get a heads up when there's a new contest sign up here.



Piles of yarn have started arriving at my design studio. In the next 9 months I'll be knitting through 39,888 yards (22.5 miles) of yarn, making 15 garments (pullovers, cardigans, and dresses!) and 4 accessories. I've organized the projects and am ready to get my needles moving. To celebrate I'd like to offer my fans a chance to win a knitting book that will help you get organized, too. Good luck!
