New Book Available September 30, 2007

211509-430612-thumbnail.jpgDid I already mention that this is my first book? I thought so. Due to my beginner's excitement, I failed to notice that the book is available for pre-order now, and not available in USA until September 30, 2006. Sorry for any confusion. I fixed the link to amazon here, and I will show more photos and discuss the content in greater detail when I have the book in my hands.


First Published Book Available Worldwide

211509-425062-thumbnail.jpg"The Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques" by Jan Eaton is on newsstands now. It is the first book I contributed a design for, and the first one to hit the newsstands. Last year, I designed the Swirl Wrap Sweater for Magazine Fall 2006, and was asked by Quarto Publishing, in London, if they could use the photo and freeform swirl technique for the book. I agreed and now several months later, its on the shelves of bookstores. Yeah!

There is a new section on the StyledbyKristin website, called "Kristin's Book Recommendations", and I am writing a brief decription of every book in my personal library, and what I like about each one. There is a link to to order any of the books that I recommend. Its a work in progress, as I have a very large library of knit and crochet books, and I want to be very careful in choosing the ones I truly recommend and enjoy.

As always, if you have any questions, you know that I'm always just an email away. 




Knitiot Clothing Available Now

211509-422689-thumbnail.jpgI met the owner of Knitiot Designs at a trade show this summer and fell in love with her product lines. I ordered t-shirts, nightshirts and hooded sweatshirts on the spot. Now, I want to share my favorites with you. Click here for a gallery of the yarn-themed clothing now available.

There are basic t-shirts, fashion t-shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts, hoodies, and nightshirts (which are awesome). I can't say enough about the fun logos. There is 'Got Yarn?', 'Knitphomaniac', 'Unwind' (in a martini glass, of course!) and much more. 

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us. We are always just an email away.
