Knitting Pattern Book : Baby Bonnet

Finally signed the contract last week to write my first published knitting pattern book! I have not been this excited about anything for a long time. Designing baby knits has been a passion for the last 6 years and I now get to design 25 patterns for babies and toddlers - and they will pay me! Pinch me!

The idea is to take vintage designs and update them for modern knitters. I want these knits to be easy enough for your beginner and intermediate knitter (like me). I have so many designs going through my head and I can't wait to see them knit up and play around with all my favorite yarns! I am planning to post my work in progress up until the manuscript is due in November.
