My co-workers are overly enthusiastic in their love of air condition. Why, must it be set at 60?! Isn't that's just a BIT too chilly? Dear friends, do you freeze in the grocery store, or a restaurant, like I do? In order to save myself from the frigid environs I keep a small shawl at the ready. They are a necessity during summer months and, since it's my lucky day (and yours), two designers have new publications coming out this year!
Miriam Felton is publishing a book of beautiful patterns (of all sorts), which she's making available in several ways. Read about it on her blog or Ravelry . You can pre-order the print book or buy the patterns in three separate Collections on Ravelry. That's a very cool idea.
Speaking of cool ideas...Rosemary is publishing an eBook of 7 Small Shawl patterns. She's designing them all in 200 days, which means you can watch the progress/process happen on her blog. One shawl is available now, but each time another is ready you automatically get an update for your book! You can buy the shawls separately if you prefer.
