    is your book finally published? Will we be seeing it soon as backers?

    • Kathryn Reply

      Yes, it came out in November. Everyone should have received two emails about it already – one directly from me and one from the Indiegogo update page. I’ll email you again now.

  2. Thank you for this list! I wanted “Boho Crochet” as a Yule gift but didn’t get it. Luckily, I got some money from my aunt that I’ll use to buy it. The book reminds me of Wink, who is sorely missed.
