Here's a video that shows some of the designs that are going into the new series Shannon is publishing: Fresh Designs:
I have some designs in these upcoming books -- a set of knitted dolls for Fresh Designs: Toys and a set of southwest-inspired sofa pillows in Fresh Designs: Home.
Now, these books will be published this summer regardless of Shannon matching (or even better, beating) her goal of $5000. The important thing here ... and why I've already pledged a bit ... is that this is a chance to help an indie publisher, indie hand-knits designers, and a host of other folks do something very cool ... very creative. Any pledge, large or small (even $1) will help. There are some cool incentives for different pledge points -- including copies of the 10-book Fresh Design books!
I spend whatever free-time I have (I homeschool my three youngest) designing hand-knits, free-lance writing and keeping up with blogs and other online activities....all in order to stay out of trouble!
