Whoa! Schulers is at 7pm Tonight!

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

My event at Schuler Books Eastwood Town Center was promoted in some places for 7pm and some places for 7:30. Whoops!

I will be there at 7:00. I will save the reading I will do from the book, until the 7:30 people have come around. We will make it work for everybody, as best as we can.

Thanks for understanding.

Meet the Designer: LynnH at Schuler Books Tonight

Are you who are new here? My Turkish-inspired sock design Hot Waves,  was included in a book published by Lark, called The Joy of Sox. Here is a photo of the design in three different colorways:

I have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Schuler Books (and particularly the energetic and passionate Whitney) for several years. When this book came out, Whitney asked me to do a presentation and book-signing in connection with this lovely book. Today is the day!

Informal Talk & Booksigning

LynnH will talk about the process of being asked to submit, being accepted, the pattern process and more. She will also talk of the nod to history (Turkish sock design) and other factors which influenced the final visual design.

The structure (toe up, afterthought heel) used here is not common in the USA. Why would Lynn choose this structure? Ask your own questions, or just drink in the colors.

Please join me. Yes, they will have books there to purchase. I’d love to sign your new copy!

(For the record, this book has a wide variety of projects. There are simple to very fancy socks. You will find top down, toe up, heel flap, short row heel and afterthought heel. Texture? Colorwork? Got ’em. There are knee highs to footlets open at the toes for pedicure day, to legwarmers. Several yarn weights are included. I am proud to be included in this collection.)
