But it wasn't until I started knitting lace that I really fell in love with knitting. I don't remember what my first lace project was but it is so addictive that I have been knitting it ever since. My first knitting book was The Mermaid Shawl & other Beauties: Shawls, Cocoons and Wraps. It grew out of this blog actually when people wrote to me asking me to post the patterns for the projects I posted pictures of here. Then when ebook readers came along I published more patterns for ebook only. Maybe someday I'll combine them into a paperbook like The Mermaid Shawl. You can find the patterns on Amazon or at KnitYourTailOff.com. Some are also available through Ravelry.
I love knitting and it is the perfect accompaniment to writing. Sometimes I listen to audio books while i knit and sometimes I just think about the next writing project!
