Muswell

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007 9 comments


Most of my non secret knitting is of the boring variety – like many, I keep a sock on the go in my purse*. Apart from that, personal knits aren’t usually allowed; I’m afraid that I’ll lack the discipline to work knit if there’s an alluring project calling my name. But last night, I was in a rebellious mood and cast on a private project: Muswell by my friend Jennie Eveleigh Lamond. Pictures will follow when there’s something worth photographing.

Apart from that, I’ve been told thee book is shipping. But is it? Mars ordered a copy back in June from amazon.com (no dot ca; we know it takes longer for the Canadians to get books)and it still hasn’t shipped: it hasn’t even moved past the ‘open order’ stage yet. Does anyone have an actual physical copy?

*takes me forever to finish a pair, though: Mars wears a 12 and I almost work at home. Since I only work on these while away from home or work, it takes the time it takes.

    I love the little kitty you plan on making! What a cute design!
    Since I started my hand at designing I have not knit anything from someone else’s pattern but like you decided to find a small project so I could have the pleasure of not thinking/questioning too much whilst knitting! I’m going to go to amazon now and order your book…I didn’t realize it was supposed to be available….can’t wait to see it!

    Well, I’m sorry you can’t do much personal knitting, but for purely selfish reasons, I’m happy since I love your designs :) Saw your new pictures of the book projects on ravelry and I love several. Can’t wait to get your book!

    I love your new book! I haven’t ordered a copy yet, but the pictures on ravelry are very promising indeed. I especially like the faroe sweater and the graphic hoodie : )

    Muswell is adorable! I must go check out your book on Ravelry now! :)

    I, too, saw your designs on Ravelry while searching for argyle sock patterns. I’m looking forward to the release of your book.

    I have to ask – what is that bag in the picture? I love it!!

    After reading in comments that the pictures from your book are on ravelry, I went to check it out.

    Wow. Fabulous. I haven’t wanted a knit design book in a long time…I’m heading over to pre-order yours right now. Wonderful.

    (I’m trying not to expose myself as the dork that I am and gush about how much I admire your designs. Ok, so I just did that. But I do. Admire your designs. A lot.)

    I hear ya & can totally commiserate. A plain pair of socks can take a couple of months – heck, I’m still on my February RSC socks! But I love my work so I cherish my socks all the more.
    Kerwyn doesn’t get hand knit socks – his feet are too big, he’s too hard on his socks and he would want them plain. Ugh!

    I ordered on amazon, com, on the 20th of August and it is supposed to be delivered by September 6. I can’t stress enough how much I love what you design Véronik. I only wish there was a way to get your previous creations. Couldn’t they be available on line for example ?
    Thanks for your work !
