Release party!

Traveling makes for some phenomenal knitting time, and when I wasn’t posting here over the past week or two I’ve been positively cruising through a sweater.

Well. As much as anyone can be said to “cruise” through a sport weight sweater in my size, anyway! I think the feel of the fabric and design means that this one should wait until the fall, so my mind is already turning to greener, springier pastures. (Despite the additional 6” of snow we got today–HARRUMPH.)

It’s good to have something new to knit, because I’ve gotten kind of nervous in the last week or so. Not only are we now just two weeks away from the official book release, we decided to load the book info and projects into ravelry early because some folks are already getting their books. It’s crazy nerve-wracking to finally be putting the book out into the sunshine. What if what if what if?!

And, of course, there’s this little announcement:

Knit to Flatter Book Release Party

In partnership with Porter Square Books
at the Masonic Hall of Cambridge
1950 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA, 02140
Saturday, 6 April, 7-9pm

Please join us for a celebration of women, and all of our
glorious shapes and sizes!

Win exquisite yarn, meet Amy, and be part of a movement
ensuring all women have clothes that make them feel great.

Hope to see you there!

Are you local (or nearly local)? Interested in some great giveaways, seeing the sweaters in person, and celebrating the bodies we have (instead of thinking about them as flawed)? Please join us!

(Seriously, please do. They heard the word “knitter” and flashed back to another knitter they’ve hosted and gave us a huge space! I am terrified that it will be just me and the wool.)

If you’re interested, you can read PSB’s description of the event here. They’ve asked us to track RSVPs, and you can sign up here.

Of course, we’ll be doing some online excitement for everyone who’s too far-flung to attend the live event. But for those who are close by–I hope to see you there!

    Waiting with increasing anticipation of book release. Yarn, needles and enthusiasm at the ready. What a shame I don’t live in the Northern Hemisphere, let alone North America! Have you any plans to ever come south of the equator?

    I’ll be participating in the “online excitement” from Australia. Congratulations and have a great launch!

    If I didn’t live so far away, I would totally be there! I purchased your book after taking your Craftsy class, which I loved btw. As a knitter for 10+years, I believe there are way too many sweaters out there that could have been saved had some of us known all the great tools/information you have shared with us. I cannnot wait to get the book now. I think you are going to do great! Good of luck on your book launch, Amy!

    Good grief! I meant “Good Luck” not “Good of luck”. I guess this means I need more caffeine.

    Wish I could be there but it’s not quite local enough. Still, wishing you an astounding success … and have fun!

    Let’s see, Asheville to Cambridge….904 miles, 13 hours and 49 minutes…Sigh. I guess not. I need to pre-order my book, though!

    Congratulations! I would *love* to be at the launch, but it would be a bit of a hike from Toronto :) Of course, I am eagerly awaiting your book…and totally understand the pre-launch nerves…they seem inevitable, unfortunately. Hang in there and enjoy the accolades!

    Just looked through the patterns from your new book on Ravelry. They are STUNNING!!!! Every one is just beautiful. Awesome, awesome job! I can’t wait to buy the book.

    If that other knitter were in the vicinity at the time, I would be willing to bet she would be there! Much too far from Edmonton, AB to Cambridge, MA, but with you in spirit. Anxiously awaiting book, which has been on pre-order forever!
