So I totally haven't talked about the book at all.  I had this whole plan, where I was going to blog about each pattern as I worked on it, and complain a lot about the process, and show lots of progress photos, and when it came down to it I totally chickened out, because why invite potential judgment before you really have to?  You can all hate the patterns once it's published, why freak myself out in advance?

But now that publication is nearing, the idea of waiting for any reaction whatsoever feels rather like facing the firing squad instead of an occasional sniper (just go with me on this one).  And so, here are some of the things that will be in the book (not all.  There will be 27 patterns, including a revisiting of those published here already--which means yay, a Maile Sweater pattern with cast-off stitches at the underarms!  And a Baby Cozy with an opening at the bottom!  Autumn Leaves that fits a bit better!  Honeycomb that doesn't take quite as many millions of years to knit!)  Plus the following:

I am currently convincing my boss to knit this for her daughter who is expecting! http://retromummy.com/2013/07/30/the-baby-blanket-is-done/

Retro Mummy posted it in Bendigo Woollen Mills (Victoria, Australia!) yarn and it looks just beautiful!

And very lucky for us all, our library has a copy of your beautiful book! Wait til the boss hears you have a second book on the way ...
