Defarge Does Shakespeare is Imminent!

This project has been cooking a looooong time. But, finally, it's time has come!

Next Friday, Heather Ordover's knitting book Defarge Does Shakespeare is being released digitally, with the paperback copy being released two weeks later. I have two patterns and two articles in it! It is a super fun book, chock full of a side variety of knitwear patterns and geeky Shakespeare stuff! If you sign up for the email news blasts, you will receive freebies and keep up to date on the release info. It is found at: http://eepurl.com/ER0hT
