the book the book the book......

All I think about and all I do is work on the book these days. It continues to be highly enjoyable and with the deadline looming in October, I am thinking about what's next for me. I am already thinking about a huge hole in the knitting pattern market for Childrens Patterns (4-10yrs). It seems as though there is not much out there designed for this age group. Having kids this age I know that it is almost impossible to find anything decent to knit them. The things I have found are either highly impracticle (Rowan) or seriously dorky. If you have any recommendations for knitting patterns please let me know.

I have been churning out patterns at record pace and I am really happy with the designs. Some are still being finished but these in the photo are ready to go. The final colors in the book will all be different than the ones shown in the pix. I am taking some more photos today of the next batch of knits completed and hope to have them up by the end of the week. (I am fighting a bit of a cold so we will see how I go).

Your comment about there not being many patterns for the 4-10 year age group made me groan!! I think there's a glut of patterns for that age group and personally find it's the 10-14/15 year age group without - they're not full on teenagers/young adults yet but are not children anymore. Perhaps it's more that us Mum's are more fussy and practical so it's 'our' age group that we find has the problem as that's what we're looking for? If that makes sense LOL :-)
