Yarn Talk-New Book-Lots of Excitement

I don't know if you've heard yet, but the book I'm part of (!!!), Midwestern Knits, was released yesterday. It's all just been TERRIBLY EXCITING over here, even though the copy of my book hasn't come in the mail yet- boo. But I do have my copy of the e-book, and I'll admit that I nearly cried when I looked at it on my pooter. It's so pretty. So, so pretty. My pattern from the book, Blowing Snow, has proven really popular on Ravelry so far- there is almost nothing better than seeing knitters get excited about your design. Eeee!! I can't wait until someone starts knitting it. I think there's actually a KAL (knit-a-long to all the Muggles out there) starting sometime in September.

As part of the blog tour for the new book, I got interviewed by editor Allyson Dykhuizen for her podcast Yarn Talk as the Designer Crush.... talk about flattering! If you want to see me jabber about my design and get a glimpse of my super huge, super fluffy cat/teddy bear hybrid, head on over to and check it out. I hope I didn't say anything stupid. Eesh. You can also win a copy of my pattern, or, if you already have a copy of the book, you can win a copy of any of my other patterns, winner's choice.
