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!
Our final two designers each contributed a pattern to Once Upon A Knit. Here’s the sneak peek of Cassie Castillo’s design:
and here’s Dawn Thompson’s:
I can’t wait for you to see ALL the patterns! I really believe there’s something for everyone – from babies to grown men.
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:
And Cirilia Rose, who has designed for several different yarn companies, and is working on her own book. She designed the cover piece for Vampire Knits:
She designed this piece for Once Upon A Knit:
Have a great Monday!!
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.
The second designer is Laura Hohman. She has designs in Knits for Nerds, including “Tank Girl Socks” and “Cunning Socks”.
Here’s a peek at her designs in Once Upon A Knit.
Look for more updates, more designers, and more sneak peeks in the next few weeks while we wait for the book release!!
I apologize for not being very active on this blog, but I will be soon. I will be coming back and posting the rest of the Designer Spotlights on our lovely designers and posting about upcoming projects, too!
Right now I’m working on new projects that may or may not be a part of something bigger. Fingers crossed!
Here’s a little look at what I’m working on.
Any ideas what they are?
See you soon – I promise! Have a great weekend and Happy Knitting!
