“What a great book! [Vickie] really covers everything and I love the small size, I can definitely see myself keeping this book at my fingertips. Good job!”–Brett Bara, Editor, Crochet Today
Well, it’s official,Knit Aid: a Learn It, Fix It, Finish It Guide for Knitters on the Gohas hit stands! As I’ve said before, I’m really excited about this book because unlike my others which really catered to very specific knitters, this one has a little something for everyone (as is illustrated by the handy-dandy table of contents below! )
Have I sold ya, yet? Well then, why not let your fingers do the walking over to Amazon or Barnes & Noble.com. They’ve got it now, and are shipping asap. Snag it here!
Lastly, big mushy gushy thanks to my editor of Knit Aid and all of my books over the past 4 years, Jo Fagan. She’s recently moved on to pursue other professional opportunities, and I’m going to miss working with her.
Today (3/31) is Trans Visibility Day, which also, coincidentally marks three weeks since I began volunteering as a Crisis Counselor for @trevorproject, an organization with the mission to end suicide amongst LGBTQ+ youth.
At this point, I only have a thimble's worth of experience, but from human to human, I thought I'd share just one of the things I've learned so far about what it means to identify as trans.
To the trans folks in my life, today and every day, sending love and acceptance your way.
To everyone, kind to one another. Respect each other's individual journies....
I’ve legit been waiting for @ikeausa to have this glass case in-stock since mid pandemic. I wanted a happy little place for projects of YarnYAY! Past to live. I love a knitwear stack. 😍 It’s the little things, people!
(Oh, and patterns for every thing in this curio are available in my shop at YarnYAY.com ✔️)...
Today's the day we kick off the Crochet-along for the @pompommag Overprint Bag, in partnership with designer @juliamadill
We've put together Montoya Merino Light kits in my YarnYAY! shop, but no matter which yarn you use (the called-for yarn is rad, but a little harder to get here in the states -- see Julia's great post about yarn substitutions), we'd love for you to make yours along with us!
Psst...YarnYAYers get a special 20% off the digital issue pf Pom Pom. See our kit page (tap or go to yarnyay.com) for details!
Join the YarnYAY! Facebook Group and/OR Ravelry Group to follow along. Hope to see you there!
You are absolutely adorable and that book looks amazing. Kudos on a job well done on the book and the video blog.
Awesome !!! Congratulations !!!
Okay, you sold me…just ordered my copy.
Thanks so much!
I always read your blog, though I don’t think I’ve ever commented before. I just had to say, though, that I love that book. It really sounds like something I could benefit from having with me in my knitting bag at all times; and I love the size, and especially that it’s spiral bound. I wish you mucho sales success on this book!!!
you *so* need to do a book like this for crochet! i don’t knit (but i’m sure i’ll be convinced to start sooner or later), but even if i did knit, i love crochet so much.
the crochet world needs a book like this from you. 🙂
What about those of us who preordered the signed copies with you??? I’m jealous that someone else can go snag it off the shelves and I don’t have mine yet… (pout).
Thank you so much , guys!
Nichole–I know it sucks that you’re having to wait, but the big retailers who order thousands of books always get theirs before us little guys, because they have standing orders. I have the envelopes here and ready to go the minute I get the books and sign them for everyone. Thanks for your patience!
You crack me up. I need to check this out. Actually, email me! I have some really exciting news…..
Looks like a great book! I’m off to order it…
I snagged Knit Aid months ago….from your website and I am hoping it comes really soon. Any idea about a time frame? Can’t wait. Also, I noticed that you said there would be no new episodes of Knitty Gritty…eey gads, why not? What a bummer.
congrats miss vickie! does this mean you’ll have time for lunch now 🙂
i’ll be picking that up tomarrow!
I watched the video you made about the book and I’m sold! I’m ordering it right now!
Rock On – so cute!
Ordered my own copy just now! Yay!!
Sooo after being totally mad at myself for forgetting to preorder your wonderful book I dashed off to the Conference of Northern California Hand weavers to expand my horizons. I wandered by the Unicorn Books and Crafts booth and Imagine my surprise when I spotted it, there among all the weaving & spinning books was the cutest little knitting reference I have ever seen. I snatched one up immediately. I was very impressed with the shop, as the book was just released 4 days before the conference. I must say it was a delight to find it as I was a bit overwhelmed in the unfamiliar world of Spinning/Weaving. Anyway thought you might be interested in knowing where your book was being sold.
That is exactly what I’m after. I love the spiral bound format. I’ll order it right now.
