I usually try to keep Family Trunk Project focused on knitting, but I just had to brag: check out the GORGEOUS new book blog that David designed for me:
I can't get over how pretty it is. David designed it based on my descriptions of what I wanted, right down to doing the charcoal drawings of blackbirds, and it's always so amazingly exciting watching Exactly What I Wanted Except Better emerge from his design work. Some of you know that I had previously been publishing all of my posts, both knitting and books, at an old blog that David and I used to share. Frankly, that setup was making me kind of insane, and I'm VERY excited to have this beautiful new forum for writing about books and books alone. (Be sure to scroll down and look at the footer! So pretty!)
Nothing will change over here, and in fact I'm almost ready to post an update on the Charles Victor tunic: it will be a photo-finish with the trip to Hawaii, but I'm still hoping to have it done by the time our plane lands in Honolulu. In the meantime, hop on over to Evening All Afternoon. Take a gander, leave a comment. Even if you're not interested in my literature-related ramblings, it is at least lovely to look at.
