3 Weeks – 2 More Designers

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.

Meet The Designers (8.4.10)

Vampires are what inspired me to design knits for the very first time, and led me to write this book. In the process of writing the book, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some wonderful designers who contributed to Vampire Knits.  Some are veterans who’ve had published designs for years, others have tried designing for the first time, and some in between.  All of them designed beautiful patterns for the book, and I’m proud to have worked with them.

Over the next several months, I’ll be spotlighting each designer.  We’ll get to know them a bit better, and possibly share some of their other vampy designs (not in the book) with you.

For now, just a quick intro.  These are the amazing ladies who you’ll be meeting over the next several weeks and months.
