I’m delighted to announce that print copies of Illuminated Knits are now available to pre-order!
The book contains four patterns (the Iona blanket, the Lindisfarne shawl, the Durrow shawl and the recently released Kells pullover). There’s also a short introduction where I discuss my sources of inspiration, a general guide to slipped stitch cabling and also a bit of advice on how best to choose colour combinations.
The book also includes a full stitch key, and some hand-drawn sketches of the main cable patterns which can be coloured in to help experiment with different colour combinations – these can both be downloaded for free as PDFs on this page (scroll down to ‘Additional Materials’ at the bottom of the page)
If you already have the e-book collection of Illuminated Knits on Ravelry, you will shortly receive an update that includes the digital version of the finished print book.
I’ll be in Inverness at Loch Ness Knit Fest from Fri 13th Oct to Sun 15th Oct – I’m currently waiting on a delivery confirmation but it looks like I should have some copies of the book available to sell at the festival. Just for fun, I’ve also made up some printed cards with sketches of the cables to colour in – the first 20 copies sold via my site will each receive a set free!
We’re currently planning a proper book launch to take place at Kathy’s Knits in Edinburgh – more details to come very soon!
