|Say you've been teaching an unusual knitting technique for several years and are ready to write a book about it. One option is to approach a mainstream publisher, or you can follow in Cat Bordi's or Prudence Mapstone's footsteps.|
Bordi self-published the runaway hit Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles. And Mapstone turned her years of freeform knitting experience into a self-published book we review this week.

In the Boutique: Four-Eyes Rule!
When I first introduced our glasses-clad Knitting Lady Pin last month, they sold out almost immediately. I'm happy to report that we are once again fully stocked with these quirky and charming pins.
In the Forums: Affordable Substitutions?
So you've fallen in love with a pattern but can't afford the yarn. How can you substitute it for a less expensive one?

February Newsletter Giveaway Winner
Congratulations to Lauren W., winner of this month's drawing for a ballotin of Godiva chocolate. If you didn't win this month, fear not—we'll have another drawing next month. Stay subscribed and you could be picked.
On a personal note, I'd like to take a moment to say farewell to a dear friend who passed away suddenly last week. Preferring the crochet hook to the knitting needle, Jenny Makofsky had a rare and constantly surprising way of seeing the world. We shared more laughter than most friends could hope for in a lifetime, and I will miss her dearly.
As always, I thank you for your readership and your support. Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums.
