Apologies for the misleading silence here. I should have been posting links to the various blogs of fellow designers and friends who have been participating in the ‘Novel Knits’ blog tour.
The tour commenced in Early December with a post from my good friend and travel companion, Woolly, whose own book ‘Bambeanies’ featured in a blog post here a couple of months back. Woolly interviewed me about my design process. You can read her post here.
Then The Knitting Goddess posted an interview with me about choosing yarns for handknits. Joy kindly provided some of the yarns used for samples in Novel Knits. Her post is here.
MaryJane Mucklestone, an American designer with a fellow interest in stranded colourwork, posted an interview with me about hand knitting traditions in Yorkshire.
Another designer friend, Carol Feller, posted an interview with me that has a focus on designing and knitting stranded colour work.
The latest post in the tour comes from Anniken Allis, a fellow British designer who does lots of designing for magazines both here and in the US. She posted an interview with me about the literary associations of my designs.
And there’s more to come! I’m particularly excited about meeting Dolores, the rather rambunctious sheep that lives with Franklin Habit. Stay tuned!
Meanwhile, a sneak peek of the fingerless mittens I intend to publish sometime this week:
