Lookie–the cover for my next book, Knit Aid is finally finished!
Special thanks to illustrator Leela Corman (also responsible for all of the artwork in the book, “You Grow Girl”) for working so hard to make this cover “kick-awesome” and also, for just being delightful in general.
I’m really excited about this book (and not just because there’s not a mullet-looking haired picture of me on the cover of this one ;-))! It’s full of how-to scoop: everything from casting-on to short rows (with a few “practice” projects thrown in between.) It’s compact design, tear-out needle gauge and easy-to-read-and-knit-at-the-same-time spiral binding, make this a perfect fit for any knitter on the go. All this–and oh, so much more–for the bargain price of $7.95! Oh, and the excessive use of “aid” related puns in this tome–that’s right, I said “tome”–are brought to you, free of charge! Look for it in Spring ’08.
In other news, next Tuesday I’ll be in North Carolina for a shoot with Warm Up America and then next Thursday the 20th from 6-9pm, I’ll be at WEBS in Northampton, MA for a little meet-and-greet/yarn tasting action. I’ve been in hiding, working on my columns, projects and books since the last tour but am looking forward to this event. WEBS has been a huge supporter of the Vickie Howell Collection (I think you can buy most, if not all, of my yarns on their website, too!) and I really appreciate it!
Alright, back to week 2.5 of working on the same crocheted coat. Actually, if I get ready now I can leave to get the kids from school and land a prime spot in the pick-up line, which will then give me 20 minutes or so in a parked car to crochet… Gotta go!
