Not Your Grandma's Knitting Books

I'm very excited to have two knitting designs in Cooperative Press' forthcoming Fresh Designs book series. Online publication is great, but there's nothing like print to make you feel you've hit the big time (actually, the series will be available both in print and online).

Visit Cooperative Press on Facebook to see a gallery of designs from some of the books. Can you guess which is mine? (Hint: the gal can model a trench coat way better than I can.)

I am highly entertained by the styling of the photos. My other design for the series is baby booties in the yet-to-be-photographed Kids book. I can't even begin to imagine how that picture will turn out.

Hey, bud!

If that rutabaga won't glow
Mama's gonna sell you a letter O

And if that letter O is hot
You'll still be the sweetest readers I got.

(Song and dance version here.)

For the curious, the foam letters are held on with the hook side of hook and loop tape. The attachment method makes it easy to remove the letters when making a sale, but is not particularly secure.

This is the last of the seasonally inappropriate posts. Next up, actual knitting! And another trench coat.
