Out of the Bag

Waiting is hard.  We all know that.  I’ve just never been sure of is if it’s harder to be waiting to get something or waiting to share something.  Patience isn’t my strong suit in any case.  The lead up to long-awaited events has too often found me hopping up and down like a psychotic kangaroo chanting either “give-me-a-hint!” or “I-have-a-seeee-cret!”  It’s not pretty I tell you.

So, you can imagine how twitchy I’ve been having to keep book stuff quiet.  Do you realize that it’s been almost five months since I knew I was going to do this?  There have been a few changes in the details, and a few bumps along the way, but for the last five months I’ve know I’m doing this specific book.  And I’ve kept my mouth more or less shut.  This is an unheard of level of discretion.  And now, it’s at an end.  I can blab at will.  So here goes.

My book will be called Silk Road Socks and will contain 14 sock patterns inspired by oriental rugs.  It is being published by Cooperative Press (run by the inimitable Shannon Okey, AKA Knitgrrl) and is coming out in Spring 2011.  There will be a website just for the book up sometime in the next little while, but I finally got the go ahead to spill the beans, and I couldn’t wait till the new site was done!
