August Update


Hello everyone! 

I hope you are gearing up for a lovely autumn of knitting. I also hope that I will see some of you during my workshop travels across Europe over the next few months. 

My work on the book is pretty much done now. I have designed and written all the patterns. All the accompanying essays are done. The patterns and essays have all been proof-read and edited by some amazing people. The photography is completed. All the schematics are done. The backer goodies are arriving on my doorstep practically every day. I am currently writing material that will go on my website as extras (tutorials and stories I could not fit into the book). 

Unfortunately last week as I was working on the proof, we ran head-first into unforeseen production delays. It is all very tedious, but the delays are ultimately out of my control. We are waiting for the production side to pick up again, and then I'll announce the release date plus the launch events. Apologies - I know this wait is very frustrating!  

We have been sharing glimpses of patterns on various social media, and it is so exciting to hear from you every time a new image is revealed. I cannot wait until you get to see the whole glorious thing. 

Thank you so much for all your patience and support. Not long to go!

Karie (and the entire team because this is a real group effort!) x

      I really enjoy these updates! While I'm super looking forward to getting the actual book, I will miss these messages - they always brighten up my inbox. :-)
