Over the last year or two I sent a few projects in to different books but that is usually where my involvement ends. I don’t see photos and/or edits until the actual book is sent to me. This does have the added excitement of seeing them almost for the first time when the book is released :-)
The first book I want to tell you about is Stitching In the Stacks that is published with Cooperative Press with Sarah Barbour who is the author. It’s now up for pre-order in digital and hard copy format. There is a really beautiful collection of pattern and I’m very proud to be a part of it.
Plus a hooded vest. Before I sent it off I took a few photos of this on my oldest son and I must also put a blog post up with a few of those photos!
The second book that I have a contribution in is Free Spirit Shawls. My copy of the book arrived last week and it’s a really interesting book. As well as 20 shawl patterns there’s lots of good info in this about different ways to wear shawls as well as different shawl construction types. I’ve taken a few photos of my shawl Euclid from the book, it’s st st and garter and all the shaping is done using short rows. (Easy to tell it’s mine right!)
