Hmm, another Monday, another Monday with Photoshop problems. What up with this?
Anyway, these days if I'm on the internet and I'm not blogging, then you can somewhat guess where I am. Thanks to the Rav, I discovered (or finally realized) that one of my very favorite knitwear designers is Véronik Avery!
Véronik uploaded a bunch of her designs to her Ravelry page. On a recent Ravelry expedition, I somehow I clicked through to there. As I scanned her photos I realized that she's the source of many of the designs that I've coveted since becoming a knitter. Coveted, but never knitted. That's another story. Over and over I thought "Oh yeah, remember that. Love that!'
Designs like this skirt:
I had forgotten about this skirt, and just how much I liked it. Furthermore, it's stood the test of time. I liked it when the pattern was first published, and I still like it now.
Then I noticed that she has a new book out. Oh my. Must. Have. That. Book.
[Remembers the book/yarn embargo currently in effect chez Subway Knitter QNS. *Drat* Remembers that Christmas isn't too far away. *Smile*]
But if, you know, someone in the marketing department of Stewart, Tabori and Chang, happens to read this post, and, you know, happens to have a review copy of this book lying around, I would be happy to, you know, write about it here. Just sayin'.
But if, you know, someone in the marketing department of Stewart, Tabori and Chang is reading this blog, I should act a little cooler about this. (Or at least make it seem less certain that I totally WANT THAT BOOK!) Why would any marketing type send me that book for free when they pretty much know that I (or someone else who might be shopping for me) will buy it? Indeed, there's a Borders right up Broadway from the offices of Subway Knitter. Right up the street. Mere steps...
Oh dear. How many days 'til Christmas?
