Urban Knitting has landed, the new book and e-book by The Red Fox and Gown. My advance copy arrived today in the post. I’m so excited! This has been a long time in the planning. Did I say I was excited? I am!
I decided to make a collection of seven of my existing patterns for Urban Knitting: From Country to City: Sage Woodland Hood, Cloud Cowl, Star Slouch Hat, Morgan Hat, Edinburgh Mittens, English Rose Hat, and Snowflake Boot Cuffs. I also decided to include a general introduction to knitting for advanced beginner to early intermediate level knitters, including Needles + Tools, Yarn and Trouble Shooting too. The book also features rich photographs from my travels around Vancouver and Europe, in urban and country settings. The book includes everything you need to knit up the patterns over 114 pages.
If you’re attending Knit City 2013 in Vancouver next month, you can see and touch the real book in person. I’m selling the 6″ x 9″ softcover book for $25, and the e-book through Ravelry for $15. It’s a deal if you consider that the patterns retail for $5/each. Some folks like tangible books and some like digital, so I decided to make both options available.
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for book pre-orders through the end of October 2013. If you want the e-book, it’s available for download immediately on Ravelry.
