Upcoming Piecework Magazine

January/February's Piecework Magazine release is imminent.  I've already gotten a couple advertising emails from Needlework about it. A couple images were included in the emails. Here is the first:

Piecework comes out every other month, and every Jan/Feb edition is entirely historical knitting. That means, all the other issues contain other types of historical textiles: hardanger, needlepoint, crochet, laces of all kinds...

My article, this time, is the large red lettering under the historical knitting banner. I'm kind of shocked I got higher billing than Nancy Bush! She is such an inspiration to me in her historical knitting of Estonia.

Here's the second set of pictures. My sweater is the red one on the right.

You can pick one of these magazines up at a Barnes and Nobles or similar store with a large magazine selection. Many find knitting stores carry Piecework, as well, but not all, since it is technically not a knitting magazine. You could also order a hard copy or a digital copy from Interweave.com.

Can't wait for my copy to arrive. Have a great Thursday, all!
