Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Coastal Knits Preview

I've had something big in the works since the beginning of the year, and I can finally tell you about it!   Alana Dakos and I have joined forces, and are excited to announce our collaborative project.  It's a book!





You may know Alana from her popular Never Not Knitting podcast.  This is how we officially "met", she interviewed me on an early episode a few years back.  Since then we've become good friends.  Alana lives in California, and I live in Maine.  We thought it would be interesting to each design pieces inspired by our local coasts.  With this concept in our hands, Coastal Knits was born.  We'll be revealing more details in the coming weeks.  I can tell you that pre-orders for our self-published book will start in September, and it will be available in October.
