You guys all know the book is going up for preorders on Tuesday. And I’m sure you can imagine how calm and cool and collected that has me feeling. Yup, super relaxed, that’s me. Not at all dervish like or engaged in any sort of frantic scramble to make sure things are organized just so for that. Nope, not at all. But just so you don’t think I’ve been lolling about, monogramming cupcakes and alphabetizing my spice drawer while I wait for the big day, I thought I’d come tell you about a whole different project.
Many of you know the delightful Heather Ordover, the mastermind behind Craftlit and its sister podcast, Just The Books. But Heather isn’t content with just bringing you hours and hours of podcasty goodness. Oh no, overachiever that she is, she’s also responsible for a host of marvelous books of her own. It started back in 2011 with What Would Madame Defarge Knit? (to which I had the pleasure of contributing my Cthulhu Waits socks). And now she’s doing it again. The sequel, What (Else) Would Madame Defarge Knit? is just about to come out. Once again, I’ve was lucky enough to contribute to the book (this time with an adorable hat and cuff set that I’m just itching to have out in the world). If you want to be in on all the festivities, you should sign up for the book’s mailing list. You’ll get the occasional newsletter, some lovely free patterns, and of course an announcement the moment the book goes live. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s going to be marvelous!
