A quick update on the new edition of our Reversible Knitting Stitches E-book! Thank you so much to everyone for your great comments and e-mails after my last blogpost announcing the new edition. I am so pleased that everyone is as excited as we are to have 50 new reversible knitting stitches in the collection, so there will now be 250 stitches in total!
Anna and I have been on the look-out for exciting new reversible stitches since the start of the year and it's great that we have been able to add so many new examples to the book. We never expected to get to such a grand total and hope you will enjoy these new additions. The photo above shows one of these, Granite Stitch, and I have really enjoyed working on some winter knits using this pattern.
Editing for the new edition is progressing at a pace and we have just completed another major task, which was to update every one of the stitch charts in the book! As you can imagine, that was quite a big job. However, there has been such an improvement in the software we use for drawing up stitch charts over the last few years, so we wanted to incorporate that into the E-book. This is, of course, doubly important since tablet and phone resolution has improved markedly over the years, so we wanted to make sure that all the charts were really crisp and easy to read.
So all being well, we will be on target to release the new edition of the E-book in September. We will, of course, send this out as a free update to everyone who already has the first edition so you can start using it as soon as it is ready. I’ll post more details here when we have some better idea of dates.
However, all of this work has highlighted the issues involved with trying to maintain the print version. The logistics for printing and mailing were already starting to prove difficult before the Coronavirus pandemic, since neither Anna nor I now live in the UK where the books are printed. However, Covid-19 then added further difficulties with extended shipping times and ever-changing export / import restrictions.
So we've decided that the current print run of the book will be the last. We do still have a few print copies available, so If you would like to purchase a copy please click here. If you would like to read more details about the book and to see a sample Flip-book, then please click here.
Just as a note, if you would like to buy a print copy of the book now as a Xmas present but would like the E-book link sent closer to the date then please let us know so I can add your friend / family member’s name to the “Christmas List”.
Hoping everyone is keeping safe and healthy. I’ll be back soon with news of some cotton scarves I have been knitting!
Until next time
