Enabling You

Well, it’s Friday. The perfect day to show you something else I’m sure you can’t live without. 
 
My newest book, Dishcloth Diva Knits On! Is out and available. My publisher, Cooperative Press has been amazing to work with. The creative control is something no other publisher could offer me. I had the ability to shoot my own pictures (I am a photographer, and all), and have some say in how it should look.

I hope you ‘ll love my book as much as I do. Here’s a little bit about it:
 

From the author of Dishcloth Diva comes Dishcloth Diva Knits On!, featuring 15 more charming cotton dishcloth patterns inspired by colorwork, cables, open work, and traditional rib knitting. Each pattern perfectly walks that tightrope between elegant design and workhorse appeal in the kitchen and bathroom. Throughout this collection, Deb’s modern design, clear photography, and precise instructions will give you hours of simple knitting pleasure.
The book also includes a step-by-step guide to organize your own group “lapghan” project: knit each dishcloth square with wool instead of cotton, and you have the beginnings of a beautiful blanket that is appropriate for charity giving. Deb’s helpful tips make it fun and easy to start your own charity knitting group.

I’m thrilled to show you a few pictures from the patterns so to  enable you…they are sure to be oh-so-popular.

I’m pretty excited, no, REALLY 
excited for this book. You can purchase the e-book on Ravelry or Cooperative Press website. 

The e-book sells for $9.95 US

The print copy will also be available soon on Cooperative Press website. 

Here’s a beautiful review and forward in Dishcloth Diva Knits On!:

“The “retro” charm of the patterns and their names captured my imagination from the start…. After casting off a large and intricate lace shawl, it felt so good to settle in with a cozy mystery and do something delightfully simple. Deb’s instructions are excellent and she has a couple of little tricks I particularly appreciated – like a built in i-cord for borders on several of the washcloths. No more floppy edges!… Deb’s deceptively simple book has become a mainstay in my knitting library. — Kelley Petkun, founder of Knit Picks

So, as I always say,

Knit On!
