The Book Tour Continues!

I've really been enjoying reading what our tour guides have had to say about Knitting in the Sun! Lots of behind the scenes stuff from the designers (and me!) and I'm always interested to hear which patterns reviewers are most attracted to!

We had a party to celebrate the book this last weekend at Knitting in La Jolla. Eileen Adler, Heather Broadhurst, Lisa Limber, and Anne Kuo Lukito, all of whom have designs in the book, were there along with many knitting friends, old and new -- and some even brought snacks! It was really a great afternoon and it was wonderful to be celebrated by such a lovely group. So thanks for coming out! {I'm ruing the day that I declared the signature obsolete. I should have spent more time honing it in middle school, I guess! I think I have perfectly decent penmanship, but I even got busted on loan documents because my signature was inconsistent. Anyway, the sentiments are true, even if you can't read my name!]

Anne has posted a couple of pictures of the event, along with a couple great blog posts about her designs and the book, so check them out! After Anne on the blog tour, comes Amy O'Neill Houck, writing from the wilds of Cordova, Alaska, who'll be thankful this summer for every single moment she has to knit (or crochet) in the sun! There'll be plenty of other tour stops in the coming weeks, so, as they say in Chicago, click early, click often!

Hi.. I want to make your sonnet sweater.. how would it work with Rowen Colourscape chunky wool. Kaffe Fassett). also I saw you new book in my yarn shop love it.. I plan to buy it as I live in florida

Love the book. I am dying to make the Santorini jacket, but I am perplexed about yarn choices. It recommends using a sport weight on a size 7, but the jacket doesn't look like a loose open stitch. Will it work on a worsted weight that gets the gauge of 18 over 4? I am reluctant to use a sportweight yarn that recommends a needle size of 2-4 on a 7. thanks!
