My Book Here....

It's finally time to let the cat out of the bag...
Bookshelf!
Guess what? I'm writing a book!  Last month I signed a contract with Potter Craft, a division of Random House!  Crazypants, right?  I am so excited for this next year of plotting/planning/designing/knitting/and writing.  I've pondered this next step for quite a while and finally decided it was TIME to take the plunge!  I'm sure it will be inspiring/challenging/and fun all at once, or at least in waves, and I'm ready to take it on.  I already have plans to balance book work out with Mystery KAL's, new kits, and other projects so I won't be disappearing in the least.... no worries!

I can't go too deep into what the book is about, just know that it will be chock full of my style, wit, and knitting adventure. It will be a book to help you stretch your knitting skills and it won't be out until Fall of 2014, so you have time to finish up what's on the needles!!!!!

Hopefully my family is prepared to eat hummus, pasta, and eggs for the next 12 months. 'Cause my time in the kitchen?  That might be what suffers!
