Swatches


I’ve mentioned before that I was busy writing a new book, but what I haven’t brought up before is that I’ve also been very busy working for one particular yarn company. Which yarn company, you ask?

Mine!

36 colors. A bi-annual magazine featuring designs from some of the best talent in the industry. I’ve got a lot to do today, but I’ll be back with more about it very soon. In the meantime, I think Carol‘s got something to add…

    If I could just say, make wide range of sizes. It will help to sell more copies of your venture.

    Thanks

    Congrats on your new ventures.

    As for your book, I’ve been reviewing lots of new fiber-related books for both my personal blog, Knit-a-While, and for my zine Knitting Purls. Readers have echoed the desire for patterns that go beyond size 44 or 48. And, if you have any input on the book’s binding, please request that it lies flat.

    Again, congratulations!

    Sweet Jesus… there goes my savings acct.

    congrats! And, as a *ahem* 52 inch bust, yes… think of the ‘bigger gals’ when you publish… we will love you for it.

    Congratulations!!! Can’t wait to try out the new yarns. I’ll echo Patty’s comment and cross my fingers for more sizes. My only frustration with your last book was that the garments stopped just before my size!

    Looks lovely! I’ll be pestering my LYS manager to get some in the shop.

  • papa

    This is ‘merveilleux’. I am sure it will be a success. Congrats. xxx

    OK; you’ve got me already! I’ve been sneak-reading Knitting Classic Style in yarn shops and when it was sold out, in bookstores, and finally ordered it from my local library statewide loan service. But, couldn’t wait the weeks it was taking to get here, so I bought IT! It isn’t that I don’t want to support authors–I do–but I have just too little space and too little money along with elegant yarn tastes. But I love Knitting Classic Style (your style) so I’m in for all: Book Yarn Magazine. I can’t wait. Hooray for you!

    Wow! Congrats! I see you’re on the path to (knitting) world domination. Can’t wait to see all the fruits of your labor. I love everything you do; so I can’t wait to see your magazine, yarn, and book.

  • Genevieve

    Congratulations on the book and the yarn line. Can not wait for them!

  • linda

    Bravo – I do believe you’re one of the few designers that is capable of success in this undertaking. Best of luck! Two suggestions: (1) go ‘backwards’ & link your “new” yarns to your “older/existing” patterns where possible, and (2) remember those non-wool knitters (like me) in your endeavour. Cheers, L.
