Here's a portion of what's been going on behind the scenes here! This announcement will hopefully be going out as a press release today...and these have already been (quietly) launched on Ravelry, too!
a new Yarn Spinner Story + Pattern --Riverbend Garden Hat. The new Yarn Spinner Story + Pattern series allows readers who
knit (or knitters who read) two pleasures at once: downloadable short fiction
on Ravelry, accompanied by a pattern that stands on its own. This is a sweet
combination for thinking knitters, particularly ones using a tablet or
adult learns his mother’s biggest secret.
Riverbend Garden: A Love Story, features a middle-aged man as he
rediscovers the familiar is not what it seems. A mid-20th century
teacher, a loving mother, serious gardener and knitter, Dickie’s mom lived an
unremarkable, but lonely life. Yet, she has time for one last story; of a
dappled river bend garden, an empty marriage, a widowhood, and a student whose
love transforms all boundaries.
story pairs with a hat to fit everyone, from a small child to a grown man. It’s
a fast project; knit with super bulky or a doubled worsted yarn. Make an extra
to keep others warm; Dickie’s mama would want you to pass one on.
