One Week til Once Upon A Knit

It’s one week til Once Upon A Knit is on the shelves! It seems like we’ve been waiting forever, but I think it always seems like a million years when you’re waiting for something exciting to happen.

I am going to share sneaks from the last 4 designers (except me –  I suppose I could do that later this week if you like) today. Yippee!

First off are a pair of designers that work together a lot. Their names are Abigail Horsfall and Trisha Paetsch.

Abigail contributed  the Werewolf Hat to Vampire Knits and has 3 designs in Once Upon A Knit.

Trisha designed 2 patterns in Once Upon A Knit – one you can see is part of a set she collaborated with Abigail, and another you will love!

Happy Tuesday!

Two Weeks, 2 More Designers

In two weeks and one day, Once Upon A Knit will be on the shelves!! I visited a local bookstore this weekend and found out they’ve already ordered copies at both locations, so that makes me happy. I’ll visit some local knit shops this week and pass out my postcards. I can’t believe the time is finally almost here!

Today we will meet two designers that are very successful in the knitting community. Tanis Gray has written 3 knitting books and contributed to several more. You can read more about her HERE.

You may remember her designs from Vampire Knits:

Blood Bottle Cozies

Got Blood? Pillow

 

She designed these for Once Upon A Knit:

Well, it’s 3 weeks til the release! Even though I’ve done this once, it’s still exciting as can be!!

Today’s designers are 2 Derby Girls!

The first designer for today is Joan of Dark, aka Toni Carr. You may remember I blogged about meeting her a little while ago.  She’s also working on a brand new book!! She designed “Love Bites” in Vampire Knits and has several designs in Once Upon A Knit.

4 Weeks til Once Upon A Knit!!!

Hey there, everyone!! I can’t believe that it’s finally almost here! Once Upon A Knit will be on the shelves in 4 weeks and one day!

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season, and for those of you enjoying terrible weather- I’m sorry. I am thankful we’re living in California, where it’s warm, because at the moment my middle child is living with two casts, and it’s really hard to put on shirts with anything longer than a short,wide sleeve. (She broke her wrists roller skating a few days after Christmas.)

Since we’re getting closer, I thought I’d post another peek, and let you meet some of the designers.

So, here are two designers who are featured in the book, as well as a peek at their designs!

First up is Marilee Norris. You may remember her from Vampire Knits – she designed the Vampire Totes and Descent Into Darkness wrap. She also designed this adorable robot doll for Knits for Nerds. In the new book, she did three patterns. Without giving too much away, here are sneaks at her projects.

Another Vampire Knits alum is Rilana Riley-Munson. She designed the Countess Bathory Scarf. She also designed a gorgeous shawl for Knits for Nerds – Summer Queen Shawl.

In Once Upon A Knit she has two beautiful designs!
