Over the past few months I’ve been working with Tara-Lynn of Good Night, Day on a book of her patterns. She’s had booklets published in the past, but this will be much higher quality, with all new photos by Arden Wray and a full redesign by me. I took on this project happily because I love Tara-Lynn’s work—I’m sure I’ve mentioned it here many times, but the only reason why I took up knitting was to knit her patterns—and because I’ve always admired her fierce independence and integrity. We’ve created something that I am really proud to have my name on. The book will be perfectbound, full colour, and will feature 18 patterns.
Unfortunately, printing costs can be quite high for an ambitious, self-funded project such as this one, and so Tara-Lynn has set up an account through Go Fund Me through which you can pre-order the book, or simply send along a few dollars to help keep this project going, if you’re in the position to do so. Asking for help and allowing people to see your vulnerability can be one of the most difficult things to do, and I admire her for taking this step.
I really love her newest knits but the patterns have been so important for me as a knitter. They’re simple and elegant and really satisfying to knit. I hope you will like them too!
