So just to recap, way back in March I introduced you to the amazing Dreaming of Shetland project in support of Deb Robson’s work. Then, in August, the first installment of the book came out and I talked a bit more about the project itself. Now, I’m happy to say, the installment with my project in it is out!
I can’t tell you how delighted I am by this book. It is a beautiful example of the fiber community coming together to support one of our own. You know how you have that sneaking suspicion that knitters really are pretty much the nicest group of folks you’ll ever meet? Yeah…projects like this are proof of that. Everyone working on it (and wow are there a lot of folks who worked on this) volunteered their time and expertise to support Deb in doing her important work, and that work will make the fiber world a better place. There are dozens of beautiful patterns, several charming essays, plus a heaping helping of good karma. Every time I think about it I get a big goofy grin on my face.
So to help spread the love, I’ve got a copy of the book to give away to one of you. If you think it should be you, just leave a comment either telling me which of the projects would find its way onto your needles first or (for extra credit) telling me your favorite story of knitters being awesome. I’ll leave comments open till the end of the day Thursday, and announce a winner on Friday (oh, and be sure to use a real email address so I can notify you if you win…I won’t use them for anything other than notifying the winner, cross my heart.)
