Some of you may have noticed that I spent almost a week in North Carolina attending a festival with over 100 amazing vendors, surrounded every day by intoxicating wool fumes, and yet did not bring home any yarn/fiber purchases (unlike the Sock Summit, where I spent a fortune). In fact, the only thing I purchased at SAFF was Goat Milk Fudge. Yummy though it was, I couldn't exactly knit with it.
There was a reason for the lack of buying, which I can finally announce. I did not buy yarn because I will not be doing much recreational knitting in the next six months... because...
I am writing another book!
Working title (which may, and probably will, change): Fearless Fair Isle
Subject: if it wasn't obvious, Fair Isle and Stranded Projects
Projected Publication Date: Spring 2011
Publisher: Taunton, who did such an amazing job on both I Heart Felt and The Big Book of Socks
My deadline: nightmare inducing
So, I'll be talking about writing and designing, and everything else in my life on the blog, and here and there showing what little *just for fun* knitting I can squeeze in, but for the most part, I'll be working.
This is book 11 (my 5th knitting book), and I'm climbing back on the roller coaster. It's good to be once again gainfully employed. Woohoo!!!
