First, the backstory: I was approached to write a camping-friendly knitting book by the book division of the Mountaineers, thanks to the recommendation of our favorite CRAFT diva, Natalie Zee Drieu. This book had been the pet project of an editor who left the publisher before it got off the ground, and they selected one of the titles below. I chose the other. (One makes reference to a classic camping book, FYI). I was telling the Harlot about the titles and she had a definite opinion one way, as did Annie Modesitt and just about every other person who’s heard them.
But that’s not what matters here at Knitting Book Title Idol. Like American Idol, you, the people (the knitters?) should have a vote! I’m not saying the publisher will listen either way, but I’d love to hear what you think, since I’m a notoriously bad titler.
For example: one title suggestion for Felt Frenzy — from a Harvard English major friend, no less — was Felt Up. Needless to say, that got voted down. (And speaking of Felt Frenzy, Amazon finally has it in stock after weeks and weeks of lying about its availability!)
So, let’s vote:
