It's Feeling Real



Over the weekend, I spent some time looking over the proofs for Coastal Knits trying to catch any last minute errors before it goes to press.


Seeing it in these printed forms, although they are rough, makes this feel very real. 



I am so excited about this book!!!!!!!!

I am finding it hard to wait to see your wonderful book!

Suzanne said...

Wow! I can't even begin to imagine the excitement you must have. Do you sit and marvel at how far you've come from the start of your knitting career as a girl who bought a pack of size 6 dpns and split them with a friend?

Alana, I can't find a lot of information on the website. In particular I'm wondering what the pricing and shipping will be outside the US. I'm in Canada.

Alana said...

To handmadehomeschool:

Once you start going through the preorder process and entering in your info, you will see a running total change with the quantity and shipping address. You will see the total before you finalize your order. There are a lot of factors that determine the shipping price, too many for us list on the site.

Email me if you have any other questions! Thanks! :)

I do some editing and prepress work on books, and no matter how many times a book has been proofed, re-read and proofed again, I still get the jitters when I let one loose to be printed. I've been doing this for a long time and still get nervous about each one. (But they are always just fine.) I pre-ordered the book and can't wait to get it! :)
