Krokbragd Book Update

It has been 4 months since the release of my book ‘Krokbragd - How to Design & Weave’. To date, over 1500 copies have been purchased. I am overwhelmed by the book’s reception around the world and the many wonderful reviews it has received in such a variety of venues. To each of you who have purchased the book and especially to those who have recommended it, I offer my sincerest gratitude.

At this point, some housekeeping is in order.

The Yarn Crawl

A yarn crawl is the fiber arts version of a pub crawl where you have the opportunity to experience a variety of local yarn shops in a geographic area.

Krokbragd Book Sneak Peek

Although the postings here have been a bit quiet, I’m busy behind the scenes working on ‘Krokbragd: How to Design & Weave’. Many of you have inquired about the progress of the book, so I thought I’d give an update and share some sneak peeks.
