Curls 3 Q&A

So…ready for the next book?  Curls 3 is coming out next week (preorder opens Tuesday, November 13th at noon eastern for mailing list folks and 1pm eastern for everyone else)!  I’ll go into all the details of the preorder later this week, but for now I wanted to answer any questions you might have about the book itself.  Let’s see how many of them I can guess!

– What’s in the book? 11 new Curl patterns, each showcasing speckled or gradient yarns.  Now of course they’ll look great with non-speckled or non-gradient yarns too, don’t worry!  But there are so many fun yarns out there now (and sometimes they can be a little tricky to pair with patterns) that I wanted to play with them! I’ll be adding more pictures on ravelry in the next few days, but here’s a start!

– What’s it look like?  I love how many folks ask this.  I’m totally one of those people who wants books to look right on my shelf.  So, here’s how it looks all snuggled up with my other books (and yes, I am a dork, and watching this stack get bigger year to year fills me with glee).

– Are they ready to go?  Have you done this before?  Yes on both counts!  The books are here, as in physically here, sitting in my garage, ready to head your way.  See (one of the ugliest pictures I share on the blog all year…but it is reassuring!)?

And this will be the eleventh book I’ve launched myself, so I totally know the drill!  You can read back through the archives if you want to see proof I’ve done this before.

– Anything fun for the preorder? Yes! There will be a special price for the preorder (with an extra special discount for the first hour for mailing list folks only).  And you order the paper version during the preorder, you’ll get the eversion for free.

I’ll outline all that in frankly alarming detail later this week.  And you can get on the mailing list here if you want to be sure you hear first thing when it goes live!
