pre-order online (both in PDF and print format). We will be carrying the book in the store as well.
From Kate's blog (where you can read more about the book)
My book is designed to help knitters grow from being confident with their needles to being confident with patterns. In it, key questions are answered, e.g.: "What's ease", "What does it mean when it says to decrease evenly across?", "What skills do I need to knit socks?", and "What's the big deal about not twisting the round?"From hearing Kate in class I know that this is going to be a great book!
The first third of the book is all about working with and from patterns - how to choose a good pattern, how to know if a pattern is going to be easy or difficult. How to choose the appropriate yarn and why and how to swatch (and when not to... ). How to choose what size to knit. And I explain all that strange language you see in patterns... like "work even" and "every foll alt"; I teach you how to read charts. I clearly explain what skills are needed for different types of projects and what the appropriate next steps are for newer knitters.
If you look at the top of this page you will see Kidsilk Stripe. If you click on it, you can see all the colours available.
I started thinking last night that I have been knitting forever on this scarf. Then I realized that I only started it last Saturday and didn't really work on it until Sunday. Not bad.
It's almost going home time and then Beth and I are heading out so I am going to sign off. Have a good night. Hope you are sitting in front of a fireplace with your needles.
