Last week I had tons of things to announce in my crochet corner but there’s actually not a lot new this week. It’s not that nothing is going on but rather that it’s all more or less a continuation of what was going on last week. But here are a few of the things I’d like to share:

Elderly Crocheter Stories Book Almost Ready

As I mentioned last week, I’ve got a new small gift book that’s almost ready for publication. I thought I’d give you a few more of the details about this upcoming release:

  • It’s a collection of 34 stories about awesome old women who are still crocheting into their later years.
  • The stories have been featured here on the blog throughout 2011 but are edited, collected and organized into a book.
  • The book is going to be a print book with a Kindle version. I said last week that the ebook would be ready first but I changed things around and that’s not going to be true after all.
  • This book is the first in an annual series.
I’m self-publishing this book and am most of the way through the process. I’m just waiting on my galleys to make sure that I like everything the way it is and if I do then I’ll be printing some up. Look forward to some giveaways when it’s ready!

3 More Weeks of Awards and Giveaways

December continues on with daily crochet giveaways. There are still more than two and a half weeks left so enter to win some goodies by visiting each day. Daily afternoon crochet blogger awards also continue through the end of the month.

New Camera is Coming

If you follow this blog regularly, particularly the crochet corner posts, then you know that a couple months back my camera mysteriously broke and the blog photos have been lacking ever since. Last week I mentioned that I’m starting a 365 project for 2012 that will include daily blog photos so obviously I needed a better camera. I didn’t get the camera I really wanted (the Nikon 1) because I’m on a tight budget right now but I did invest in a new camera that should be on its way to me as you read this. Yay.

Swaddle Crochet Art Project Updates

I haven’t done much with Swaddle lately for a variety of reasons including that I’m trying to figure out how to fund the yarn necessary to move forward. We’ll see. What I’ve decided is that I’ll be doing once a month updates on Swaddle starting in January. These will be video posts so stay tuned for that if you enjoy the artistic process.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

    The book must be very exciting for you , and no doubt a lot of work too.
    The necklace looks great too!

      @Maudeandme … I love doing book work but it’s definitely a different type of commitment than blog writing!

    I’ll definately buy one of your books – I love stories like that. :)
