The End!
« on: November 13, 2006, 05:11:18 PM »

I cannot believe it, I finished my book 16 days early! For the first time, I paced myself throughout the book, always with the deadline in mind (and the fact that I volunteered to host Thanksgiving a mere 5 days from the deadline), and I actually finished early, with most of my brain still functioning (you'd think it would not have taken 10 books to get the scheduling thing down).

The title of this book is changing, so I won't announce it yet- but it's another knitted-felt book, with 33 projects that go beyond just plain knitting and felting- I used Fair Isle and Intarsia work, Cables, textures, applique, beading, and needlefelting to enhance the designs. I'm pretty darn pleased with the bunch. It won't be out until Spring '08, and I know there will be work yet to do, but for all intents and purposes, I'm done!

And now, I can go play for awhile. Or collapse. One or the other. Or both.

Kathi   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Oh, congratulations!  That's absolutely wonderful.  And no doubt it is a beautiful book. You should be proud!

I wish you major sales -- even better than your past major sales.  :)

Kathi, I'm delighted for you! What an accomplishment! And as a fellow knitter, I'm doubly excited!  Now you can REALLY enjoy turkey day.

woooooo whoooooooo!   Good for you.  I remembered you'd said you were working on a new book and was starting to wonder.  I can't wait to hear the title :).  You have such clever ones like KNIT ONE, FELT TOO,  and YARNS TO DYE FOR.  I've noticed that pure wool yarn is easier to find lately, even Wally World had some.  I just did a felting project, some mittens, and boy are they warm.  People still seem to be into felting big time, so I'm sure you'll have a successful book.

Congrats, Kathi! Your designs always make me wish I could knit. (That is, knit anything that turns out roughly the size and shape of the illustration.)

Mazal Tov, Kathi - I'm so proud of you!

(Although I must say I do miss Tory Bauer... Any relation to Jack Bauer, BTW?  ;) )

So, now maybe you'll post more often?
