Beaded Lace Knitting

I wrote a book this year. I finished it in early August and while we were in Spain I had an e-mail from my editor with a copy of the cover of the book. I was so excited! 

I'm very happy with the cover - my favourite colours! The shawl worn by the model is probably one of the most difficult designs in the book.

So here's the Cover - Tadah:

And I've just discovered this morning that the book is on pre-order on Amazon. The book won't be out until May next year but you can pre-order now (there's an affiliate link in the side bar - top left).

As the title suggests, the book is all about beaded lace knitting. I love knitting lace with beads and working on this book has been a lot of fun and hard work. 

There will be shawls, scarves, cowls, garments and mitts using a variety of yarns including luxury yarns and budget yarns. My knitters were amazing and I couldn't have done this without them. I'll talk more about the individual designs and my wonderful knitters when I'm allowed to share more. A huge thank you to all the yarn companies who supported the book.

I'm very happy with the photos and I'm so grateful to Stackpole Books and my editor for contacting me last year about doing a book. I'm looking forward to sharing more about the book closer to the publishing date
