Defarge 2—What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?—this time in color!—is in pre-orders! 25+ patterns of yarny goodness (sweaters, mittens, a devilishly cute layette, and more all await you!). The good people at Cooperative Press have found a local printer who can bring you our new book still printed in the USA! Mwah!
Have I told you how much I love indie publishers?
And speaking of Cooperative Press! Two new goodies for you! First, the CP Sock & Mitt Club. Second, the CP Mag! Both of which yours truly will be working on! Yay! What is CP saying about the Magazine?
And, more happiness—the husband gets more good press for his book, too! Yay books! Yay literate people!
