I have received some copies of my newest title, ‘Mini Knitted Ocean’ the other day.
It is always so exciting to see my work in print. I am certainly sending a copy to my mum and dad in Japan.
We did the photo shoot back in last summer, so the book has come a long way. Some of the projects were very challenging to photograph and took us a very long time to come up with the shot we were all happy with.
This one was the toughest and we worked on it over an hour.
Because of the shape and the size of the photo in the page, it was very difficult to fit everyone in!
To the team I confessed that I am a big fan of Denzel Washington and named after him the officer on the left. Then, everyone started to call him ‘Denzel’.
“Move Denzel a bit forward.” “Move Denzel to the right”….. Amusing.
So what’s next?
My next book will be a sewing book. It is a collection of Christmas felt projects.
When I show my knitting book to my friends, some of them said, “It is lovely, but I don’t knit.”
Now they don’t have any excuse not to get involved creating cuties.
The book will have many projects as always. There are quick and easy individual projects and larger sets with many items and characters. I have posted photos of Christmas wreath and Nativity sets. They will be certainly included in the book.
Poinsettia and Holly leaves fairies for Christmas tree;
My favorite camels will be in it, too.
Writing a sewing book is something new for me. I need to produce templates this time. My younger son has been very helpful and did a fantastic job drawing on Word. It took him over five weeks! I think he has more patience than I do.
With this book, you can have lots of fun not only on the Christmas day but days and weeks before it. Isn’t that nice?
I have entire Nativity set knitted as well. I am sure I will get to share the pattern someday.
