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!

  4. Can't wait to see the new book Bruce, the sample sweater looks gorgeous!. Are the scarf patterns being published separately and when do we see those? Lovely to see you are busy, hugs to Mark and hope you two are enjoying all the travelling for the GOAT book?
