Waiting for the book!

I'm excited to have this book and am waiting for Amazon to surprise me with its arrival! Although they list it as "in stock" (finally), my shipping record says it's not shipping out until the first week of April! And yet...and yet...I saw a copy sitting on the shelves of Barnes & Noble the other day! So, we'll see...maybe it will show up one day soon, as a surprise! Can't wait to dive into some of those projects!

Green Sweater

Has anyone made the sweater from the front of the book yet? I would like to but haven't decided on the yarn yet.

Oh La Lace! Join the new KAL!

At Interweave Press we've loved watching knitters from across the globe participate in the very successful Scarf Style and Wrap Style knitalongs. Lace Style is the next book in that same series, with 21 stunning projects illustrating the diverse and nontraditional ways to use lace. The patterns are by some of the country's most talented and inventive knitwear designers, including Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Annie Modesitt, Nancy Bush, Shirley Paden, Mari Lynn Patrick and more.

Members of this KAL are encouraged to share their own creative versions of the patterns as well as their tips and suggestions for materials. We hope these patterns will give you new ways to think about knitting lace.

If you're interested in joining, please send an email to knitalongs AT interweave DOT com and we'll send you a link with instructions on how to start posting to the site. Please include "Lace Style KAL" in the subject line of your email. Let's knit some lace... What better way to have some fun this spring and summer knitting season?

Also stay tuned: Bag Style and Folk Style KALs are coming this fall!
