Today I got the final, FINAL copy to read through of the What ELSE Would Madame DeFarge Knit book (click on the title to view!!) patterns by yours truly, and two essays. When one designs something, and pours so much into it, and has to write an essay to go with the knitted item, one can end up putting so much time into them, that one is, well, done with them. That certainly felt the case when I started out with these two designs and three patterns. They were the first ones I had written so closely, and had edited to be published. But, now that time has passed, it is a pleasure to read them once more.
I am honored to be the writer/pattern designer to start out the book. And, a little sheepish, which I guess isn't a bad thing in the knitting world. But, scrolling through the book, this is the first time I have seen one of the items photographed. I was so chuffed to see that first photo! So cool! Well laid out, and an adorable model(s)! Gosh! Maybe I need to knit another one right now!
I can't show pictures; I can't talk about the wonderful, gorgeous patterns filling the entire book. I can, however, urge you to click the link above to the book order and encourage you to be the first on your block to have this book! Do it! Do it now!
