Black Bunny Etsy note
It has come to my attention that there is some kind of snafu with Etsy such that pasting my shop address in your browser or using links will net you an error message. I expect that this will be fixed fairly quickly but in the meantime, try searching the tags for "blackbunny" or the sellers for "blackbunnyfibers" and see if that helps. I apologize for any inconvenience. Next update will probably be Sunday evening.
Okay, I definitely am a few skeins short of a sweater these days. I mangled the name of Jane Sowerby's Victorian Lace Today until an astute commenter pointed it out (along with a Yahoo group and knitalong). There is, in fact, already an errata page here, and if you are interested, Karen K included links to the knitalong and Yahoo group in her comment to my original post. Thanks, Karen K!
Also, Marilyn urged me to consider Aran Sweater Design by Janet Szabo. Sadly, I was confused, and thought that this was the same self-published volume I had purchased a couple of years ago. But Kate set me straight:
Aran Sweater Design is not the same book as Handbook of Aran Sweater Design. ASD is 171 pages, plus Index, vs. 90 pages for HASD. While ASD began as a revision and updating of HASD, it has more patterns and more explanatory text than the original, as well as better production values. I own them both, and will keep both.
So I apologize to Marilyn for being such a know-it-all. (I should know better; Marilyn knows more than nearly anyone I've ever met about knitting.) And thanks to Kate, too.
For now, I will remain coy and tell you only that I am working on the book with Lisa and Laura, two of my colleagues at Rosie's; it is being published by Interweave Press; and our release date is spring 2008.
Coming soon, by popular demand: A photographic tour (with explanatory notes) of the bomb shelter.
