Rabble Rousers Yarn Giveaway

Because I love you all, and because yarn people are the very nicest people imaginable, I've got some goodies to give away over the next few weeks to mark the launch of Rabble Rousers.  (I seriously love my job, not only do I get to play with all this pretty yarn, I get to give it away and make others happy too!) I'm starting with Wistful by Briar Rose.  This is the yarn I used to make Clamor, and holy wow is it yummy stuff.  It's an alpaca, merino, silk blend.  The alpaca gives it just a hint of a [...]

Rabble Rousers

It's up!  My latest project, Rabble Rousers: What to Knit When You're Up to No Good, is now available for preorder. It's a collection of seven great accessories (two hats, two cowls, three cuffs).  I've been calling it a mini book because it's smaller than one of the big books like The Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet, but quite a bit bigger than any of the individual patterns.  And immodest though it is to say it, I'm pretty sure it's a marvelous example of 'good things come in small packages.'  These patterns are all a huge amount of fun. You can find all [...]

Alrighty.  As promised, details today, shiny new mini book tomorrow.  But, because there are a couple of different ways to get the new project, I thought I'd come today and spell everything out now, just so we're all on the same page. Some time late tonight or very early tomorrow morning, Rabble Rousers will go up for preorders.  That means the book's website will be up and the book will be up on ravelry and you'll be able to order it.  As usual, there's a special offer during the preorder period as a way of saying thank you to those of [...]

We're back home and, as predicted, the knitting aspirations were wildly overly optimistic.  I didn't knit one single stitch.  The second sock remains a neatly wound ball of yarn.  I would feel bad about this if only I could muster the energy to care.  At the moment, that's beyond me.  But, this little knitting break is making me sort of twitchy, so I should be back to the needles soon.  In the meantime, I'll be busy getting everything ready for the Rabble Rousers launch.  That starts next Tuesday (and I have all sorts of grand plans), so look for lots [...]

The Order of Things

By this point, you guys know me.  You know there is always a Plan.  Now the details may change, and the specifics are sometimes a bit hazy, but the existence of the Plan is constant.  The Plan keeps me on track.  The Plan is how I know what the next 4 books will be.  The Plan is all-knowing and all-powerful. But I also tend to keep the Plan private.  I figure you guys don't particularly want to know the details of what I'm plotting for three books from now.  That's years down the road, and if I chat too much [...]

We had the photo shoot.  I remembered to bring both the camera and all the knitting.  No one died of heat stroke.  We did not get arrested (opinions vary on whether we were, strictly speaking, allowed to be in that building at that time).  All in all, the day was a rousing success.  Oh, and we got good pictures too!  These are just a few of the favorites of the moment.  There are lots more to be seen later.
