Yes, that just about sums it up! The books have finally arrived from the printer, and we are very happy!
There is so much to consider when creating a book, and this one involved many new decisions. We took some different choices with our paper and cover stock, and settled on some different layouts (as befitted the book’s new material, like Tom’s recipes). We’ve worked really hard, and the whole thing looks lovely (though I do say so myself). Tom has taken some wonderful photographs for this book, and I have to say that we were particularly happy with the cover photograph (above), in which I am depicted with the mighty peak of Buachaille Etive Mòr on a cloudless October day. I find the way the mountain wraps around the book spine really pleasing!
We have spent the past couple of days shipping books out to Seven Skeins club members. This afternoon I’m putting my feet up (yes, those are more mince pies)
If you would like to purchase a copy of the book (which includes the 12 Seven Skeins patterns, Tom’s recipes, an introductory essay by me, photography, and a guided walk around Buachaille Etive Mòr) it is now on sale in our shop.
Righto, I’m off to leaf through my book and eat Tom’s pies.
See you later!
