Drum Roll Please....




For the first time on this blog, the cover of my new book:

The listing is up on Amazon, without the cover:




The book will be released on Sept. 1, and I am so excited!!!!

That cover is so fun! and I'm very glad to know the release date because I'm certain that once it does come out, I will no longer be able to resist trying socks... now I can plan for clearing my schedule for after Labour Day till I have my first pair! and I know just the shadowy sock yarn to use, too, heh heh heh.

Congratulations! This has become *the* year for sock books, hasn't it? First Cookie A, then Wendy Johnson, and now you! I've loved the patterns you've done for Knit Picks and I'm sure your new book is wonderful. Happy day to you!

This looks like a book I'll definitely have to add to my library- I'm becoming quite obsessed with knitting socks lately.

Thanks for posting the cover Kathleen! I'm catching up on my blog reading because my mom died unexpectedly on Tuesday. It's nice to have some happy news after the awfulness of the past week. I too look forward to snagging my own copy of your book. My knitting is keeping me sane right now.

Oh dear, I can feel my resolve about not adding to the library slipping...

Congratulations!
