Circular Knitting Redefined...due out February 2010

It's so tough waiting to see what the book cover is going to look like when you've contributed a few designs. I don't do well with the waiting process. I stumbled on this hap-hazardly (as usual) when I went on http://www.anniesattic.com/. I knew it was coming out in February - but in the book publication world, that could mean February 2011! I have 2 designs in this book - the second design will have to be a mystery until the book comes out! I'm having a great time and learning a little bit about patience.

Newest book due out next month

Looks like this book is finally here - well, it will be in about 3 weeks anyway.
From what I remember, there are 5 women's sweaters in this book - 1 being a simple cabled cardigan, 1 being a cropped and cabled open cardigan, a sleeveless 2-toned shell, a short sleeved tie shrug and my favorite - the simple yet flattering pullover shown on the front cover. It's a nice variety of sweaters for all seasons.
This book uses some specialty yarns like Cascade "Pastaza" and "Cotton Rich" and Elsebeth Lavold "Silky Wool" as well as a few more commonly found yarns like Bernat and Patons.
I can't wait to get my samples back so I can wear this sweater! That's the only drawback to publishing....it takes a while before you can wear the sweaters you've knit.
