hey everyone, thanks for all your congratulations! it’s so great to have a community to celebrate with :)
i thought i’d answer a few questions about the book that came up in the comments.
first, how much did i have to do with the designing of the cover? none. and for that reason i am super impressed. the book contract is for my patterns – i provide patterns and knits, proofing, extra things to take photos of and general blather, etc. the people i’m working with as editors try to make the book as ‘me’ as possible while also following the rules for knitting books put out by them. for that reason, you can expect pattern set ups like those in Yarnplay or Fitted Knits.
also for that reason, i have no idea what that object is holding that hat. i think whatever it is, it is fabulous, but, sadly, it is not mine. the knitting is mine though :)
if you all have any more questions, i’d love to answer them within reason. fire away.
p.s. found these umbrellas for a dollar each at a garage sale a while ago… and took a pic because i’m planning to use them until they fall apart and they are SOOO cool.
