Back in October, I talked to Pam Allen about moving my office to her Quince & Company warehouse, only a mile from my house. Working at home had been great up until this point, but I was itching for a change of scenery after the release of Coastal Knits. Once I was in the building, we inevitably started talking ideas for collaboration. I'm excited to announce our project to you today! Knitters, meet Knitbot Essentials.
This book is a collection of six of my popular sweater designs and three accessories. These are all beautifully presented by Quince & Company...this includes their fantastic yarns and the design talents of Carrie Bostick Hoge!
Knitbot Essentials will be available both as an e-book and in print in just a few weeks! More details on where and when you can purchase your own copy will come very soon.
The book includes: - A foreward by Pam Allen.
- A lesson in drape. My most popular designs involve knitting lace or fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge. I tell you the history behind my love affair with this knit fabric. I also provide tips on how to achieve perfect drape in your finished Knitbot garments.
- Nine meticulously edited patterns. Garment patterns are available in a wide range of sizes and include detailed schematics. A brief history is provided for each design.
- A techniques section includes photos and instructions for techniques commonly used in my patterns.
Pam will be blogging on the Quince and Company blog over the next few weeks with more teaser photos, be sure to check them out here!
I'll be back myself with more details this week...
