Sneak peek tomorrow: It’s a big-un!


First, I want to say thank you to everyone for the warm, thoughtful, and kind comments on yesterday’s post. I couldn’t respond to every one (though I wanted to), but many of you brought a lump to my throat with your experiences and thoughts. So thanks.

I also wanted to let you know that you should definitely tune in tomorrow, because I’m going to be talking about a big, big project I’ve been working on in collaboration with a talented friend and colleague. I think it will be perfect for many of you, based on some of the answers you’ve been throwing out in the recent giveaway post when I asked what you wanted to learn more about.

I’ll also be talking a bit about some upcoming patterns. Come back for that tomorrow!

Sign me up for your knits book, please!

Probably the most disappointing thing about the original Colette sewing book was that it didn’t cover knits at all, so I’m really glad to see this book.
