It's Finally Here!

3:54:00 PM

I ordered The Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design book from last week with a gift card I got for my birthday and it finally arrived this morning. I'm so excited and as you can see from the photo I didn't even bother to comb my hair before diving right into it. Ha!

Anyway, I really like what I've read so far especially the fact that it highlights the importance of social media when representing yourself as a designer and getting the word out about your designs. It also presents the pros and cons of selling your patterns on different sites such as Ravelry, Etsy, Knit Picks etc. The second half of the book contains interviews with top designers in the industry. I haven't gotten this far but it's always nice to get a fresh firsthand perspective from those who've been through the trenches already. I can't wait to continue reading...

But first, I'm off to implement some of the tips I already picked up from this great book. I highly recommend ordering a copy.
