A design of mine is in a book (again!)

When author Tanis Gray asked me to submit designs to her book project, "Modern Baby Knits" 18 months ago I was very flattered and excited -- and even more so when my submission was accepted. Then came the long wait for the book to actually be published, but boy was it worth it! This is the book cover:

You can even see a peek of my design (the bonnet with the rainbow pom-pom) on the back cover! How cool is that?

Here are the book photos of the Rainbow and Mitten set that I made:

And here a few snapshots I took just before sending in the sample. My daughter is just about a year old on these (she is 2.5 now!)

The collection of 23 knitted baby garments, blankets and toys is, in my opinion, flawlessly put together, everything is super wearable and exciting -- and as Tanis calls is, it's "fuss-free knitting." The other designers that are featured in the book are some of my favorites, so being part of that group was a big thrill. You can see all the designs that are included in the book over here.
