New Book, Tunisian Crochet Baby Blankets!

It's a mystery no longer! I'm delighted to be able to tell you that one of the projects I've been working on has now been published by Leisure Arts: Tunisian Crochet Baby Blankets. Right now it's available as an e-book, with the print version expected in January. Here's the e-book link if you're interested: This is my first title with Leisure Arts, and it has been a great experience so far. (Don't worry, I haven't abandoned my longtime publisher, Stackpole Books; we start shooting photos this week for our next crochet title!) LA just had me design the patterns, write them up, make the samples, and ship everything to them. They did the rest--tech editing, photography, adding videos.

The book has eight patterns.I chose techniques that I hope will appeal to a variety of crocheters, whether they are new to Tunisian or have already mastered the basics.  Here are some pictures:


A ninth pattern for a pink blanket, Heirloom Frame, will be released as a stand-alone in mid-December, and offered for free at first.I'll post the information once it is available. The book is going on tour (my books travel more than I do!), and will be visiting some top crochet bloggers in the next month or two. They're going to be offering giveaways. I'll keep you posted on all of that as we go along. If you haven't found me on FB yet, please join me there at Sharon Silverman Crochet. I've concluded that writing and distributing a newsletter is not feasible right now, so that's the best place to keep up.

Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are feeling great!
