UK Publication Day!

I’m delighted to tell you that What To Knit: The Toddler Years is available in the UK as of today!  Not quite sure when the US pub date will be, but in the meantime, here is and

If, perchance, this is your first time on the blog and so have not heard me ranting/rejoicing about it before now,  it’s a collection of thirty gorgeous sweaters, cardigans, hats, toys and more. The patterns are designed with energetic, opinionated, enthusiastic, curious, and messy toddlers in mind! They allow you to show the child’s individuality while emphasizing practicality and comfort, with advice on machine-washable yarns.

The chapters are divided into:
Rough & Tumble--including a comfy hooded jumper and roomy overalls.
Neat & Nice--including a lace panel cardigan and a dandelion pullover perfect for visits to Grandma
Toys & Miscellany--including a stuffed octopus, knitted oven gloves for toy kitchens, and a ladybug pillow.

From oversized buttons to help tots dress themselves to playful animal hats, these whimsical and attractive designs will delight both the young, and the young at heart.

That be the cover copy.  Here be the pretty pictures:

These are all from the book--the ones you've seen up-to-now are by me.  My camera is nice, but photographer Ali Allen kicks my butt.  Also these British kids are pretty cute.
