Sweaters for the new Book

Well, after months of sketching and designing - swatching and ripping, the first few projects are going out to my tech-editor, Therese.

The new book is called The Boyfriend Sweater and there will be 14 sweaters and 4 scarf projects designed for men or women. The first one here is a willow green 3-dimensional honeycomb in a women's medium.... it will be knitted in black for a man - photographed two ways in the book.

Also going out are 2 scarves using a woven stitch that makes the scarves look like they were loomed.

Along with writing and designing and knitting for The Boyfriend Sweater, I'm writing a whole grains cookbook to be published by Rodale sometime in 2012 and I'm testing recipes for Weber grills. Busy busy busy.

Next week, I'm off to Texas for 2 weeks of book publicity for my latest book GOAT: Meat Milk Cheese, teaching goat classes all across the state. Ending with 2 days of knitting classes at Hill Country Weavers in Austin.

Stay tuned... more to come as projects progress including a houndstooth jacket, a plaid pull over, and the prefect varsity sweater in cashmere and baby alpaca!
