Guess what the UPS man brought me today?

I just got my author’s copy of Knitting from the Center Out from STC! I can’t even express how beautiful it is – all the hard work, the breakthroughs, the struggles, the aha! moments, the sleepless nights, the writing, the knitting, the editing, the re-editing, one gargantuan year of my creative life all wrapped up in a neat little rectangle of 160 pages.

In my very first conversation with my editor, she asked me if I already had a vision for the look of the book, and all I could come up with in that first flustered moment was “well, just… pretty!” And that it is. Every stitch pops right off the page, and each project cries out “make me!, make me!” The photography, styling, and illustrations are all dripping-off-the-page gorgeous. I can’t wait to share this book with all of you and see what you make with my ideas.

The book hits the shelves November 1, and I’ll be talking about it lots more in the meantime here and on Facebook and Ravelry and Twitter. You can get your very own copy here, or check out my new sidebar at the left.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to everyone who made this book possible, to everyone who made it so beautiful, and to everyone who supported and encouraged me along the way. You know who you are, and you rock my world.
