What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?

Release of the upcoming What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit? is creeping ever closer.  Maybe just three weeks away?

In keeping with the building excitement, editor and chief-podcast-crafty-lady Heather Ordover has created an email subscription list.  Tied to that list are free patterns, including one from your truly!  Click on the words above and a new browser page will open and take you there.

Inside the book itself are many essays and patterns, all based on classical literature.  

Not to spoil it, but two of my patterns are first ones out of the gate -- patterns with equal parts inspiration from a certain Massachusetts author, and my Illini great-grandma.  Little teeny snippet of it... in the next post!
