It's here!

As I walk into my office, a lovely scent greets me at the door. My husband doesn't like it but to me it's the best scent ever. What am I talking about? It's New Book Scent that makes my room smell so sweet. The books are here! 

Backers will be getting surveys in the next few days. We are still waiting on a couple of yarns. Next week we will be getting together to autograph books - it takes a little time when the authors are in two different states. 

Thanks again to all of you who made this possible.

Success!

It seems right to post this on a morning with a temperature of -10 degrees.

Today I want to share with you one of the coolest things about a book of 45 mitered square designs (A Knitter’s Gallery of Mitered Squares – 45 Unique Designs in Color, Texture and Lace), combining squares. Several months ago, when we were still creating the designs, I got a package in the mail from my mother, Jane. This was one of the squares she designed:

lace square

Immediately, I thought how fun it would be to have a square with the lace and garter section opposite to this one. A few hours later I came up with this:

lace square 2
lace square 2

A few hours after that, I had designed one of the garments in the book – Frosty Sunrise. I love how the combined squares create additional squares of lace and garter stitch. Ours is made with 2 colors of Blue Sky Alpacas Metalico, baby alpaca blended with mulberry silk. It’s so soft and warm. Now that the days are getting colder, I’ll be wearing this wrap a lot!

"I've seen lots of books and articles on knitting mitered squares over the years, but this book is the one that is the most interesting, varied, and usable. Every square illustrated in the book, whether color, texture, or lace, has a detailed photo and a beautiful chart. To top it off, each square has advice on resizing. Not only is it visually appealing, but this book is also full of technical instructions on the finer details of producing and joining knitted squares with ease. A Knitter’s Gallery of Mitered Squares is so much more than a simple reference book. It's sure to inspire and intrigue even the most experienced knitter." – Amy Detjen
