A little tea, a little chat

Little Red in the City - Ysolda Teague This is the positive side of self-publishing: a magnificently thought out combination of instruction and pattern which will be a classic in another twenty years' time.

It simply has no point at which it falters, the layout manages to be pretty without that being distracting, it has one very overweight model as well as one of normal size, and when you buy the hard copy, you also get a digital version. This is such a good idea: it means one can use a printed out copy for writing notes on, leaving the original in deservedly pristine condition. It also means that as errors are found and need to be updated, one can readily access corrected versions. The interaction of designer with knitters is a small but marvellous aspect of the functionality of the internet.

I guess there will be an update when I get around to knitting something from this.
