Book Update & Sneak Peek | Rope Knits

The sheep were unusually friendly, probably because we hadn't yet fed them that day.

Update on the library book

I’ve had more than 50(!) submissions so far and I’ve got to say, I’m just delighted. So many great ideas, so many clever library references. I’m so impressed with what people have come up with and I wish there was room for all of it. There are still a couple of days to the deadline (11/11/11) so if you’ve got an idea, it’s not too late!

Heather Ordover of CraftLit was kind enough to give my call for proposals a little shout-out in her most recent podcast and it’s already brought in at least one submission—thank you, Heather! Heather is the author of What Would Madame DeFarge Knit?, another Cooperative Press Book, and was incredibly helpful in talking me through the initial stages of getting my own book off the ground. Her podcasts are a lot of fun and full of useful information—like the fact that my deadline coincides with Nigel Tufnel Day!—so check them out when you have a chance.

In other news

I’ll be releasing a shawl pattern tomorrow and a matching hat pattern hopefully next week. My pressed-into-service photographer husband and I have been trying, with various degrees of success, to get some good photos of them. Here’s a taste of what we’ve come up with so far:

That's Bo...and that's me getting a whiff of sheep-breath.

Here's a somewhat more dignified view of the shawl...

...and the hat.

Stay tuned!
