Today was super exciting. Interweave revealed the cover and some sneak previews of my new book.....
Simply Crochet BLAD
This book was a collaboration between me and a number of fabulous designers. I designed about a quarter of the projects, then wrote all the rest of the manuscript including drawing all of the diagrams. What was so special is that I got to also act as Editor for the other designers. We would brainstorm on style, stitch patterns, motifs, colors, and yarn choice. It was so much fun discussing real projects with them. I am so jealous of yarn companies and magazines that get to do that all the time. I will feature each designer in an upcoming post, because they each were fantastic to work with. For now, I can tell you I got to work with:
I know, how awesome right?
This book is all about what you can do with just a few skeins of yarn. I am sure, you, like me, have random balls of yarn laying around. Well this book shows you what you can make with 1, 3, or 5 balls of yarn. Like you can get a small cabled project (like a hat) or a larger lacy project (like a shawlette) all with one ball of yarn. It has tips and tricks for making your crochet enjoyment last on a budget. The projects you will see run from women's garments, to baby clothes, to accessories, to home projects. It has something in there for everyone.
More on the book as we go. It will be coming out this winter around the holidays.
