It's June 1

Last night I couldn’t sleep. After spending a lot of time putting together a book proposal to shop around to publishers…I came to the realization that there is no reason why I can’t self-publish my first knitting book. I haven’t even started shopping yet, but I’m realizing that I am too much of a control freak and the idea of having to give up any of my creative control gives me heartburn. So, I laid in bed thinking about the obstacles I would have to overcome. It isn’t going to be easy and it is going to be a lot of work, but at least I would have full say in how the book goes together.
My book is going to have a lot of new techniques that I have invented as well as a lot of extra tips and tricks. Each piece is going to be done in several different colors and sometimes different yarns and embellishments so that the knitter can see the wide range of possibilities with the patterns! This book is going to be different than any knitting book currently on the shelves. So now my mind is spinning with a million ideas and I’m beyond excited for this new adventure!
So here I am – day one of the process and I’ve already started working on the first piece for the book!
