Knitty reviewed the new book and it’s wonderful!
It’s a fascinating read, whether you want to design or not. In fact, I think anyone who has ever bought a knitting pattern should read this book.
Yes. I AGREE with that. Please do! 😉
The first 11 chapters contain information it usually takes designers years to learn — years of trial and lots of error. It’s valuable and it’s interesting, and much of it is useful for creative businesspeople in the digital age, whether you design or not.
Mmmhmm. I did want to make that abundantly clear — this isn’t just a book for knit designers, or even knitters — there are things to be learned no matter what kind of creative industry you’re in, and I hope the word will spread.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Knitty! Now I have to go carve out some time to knit one of the new patterns there — Amy King‘s Jewels. LOVE.
